Liner Notes: 

Based on a true story...

Lyrics: 

when alice took a fall
into a new life
rules were changed
she never knew

if she was up or down, if she was big or small
would the next bite of cake be sweet as it strung her out
or put her on the ground
put her on the lowest ground

it's not too much to ask
no it's something we demand
our bodies are ourselves
not yours to command

don't take an interest
in someone's uterus

it isn't yours to order
it isn't yours fill
not yours to cut away
nothing for you to have a say in

it's not too much to ask
no it's something we demand
our bodies are ourselves
not yours to command

when alice broke
through her own glass wall
rules were changed
she heard a promise

jam tomorrow, jam yesterday
but never never
jam today
running in place fast as we can
we stay behind, our rights be damned

it's not too much to ask
no we demand
our bodies are ourselves
not subject to command

she heard the promise
we reject the premise

don't take an interest
in someone's uterus

t isn't yours fill
it isn't yours to order
not yours to cut away
nothing for you to have a say in

she heard the promise
we reject the premise
we have our
jam today
jam today

Wow! This is a really cool one! I like that it has interweaving sections, where verses focus on the story about Alice and then the chorus brings it out to the main idea of the song. They work together very nicely.
