White Rabbit is a song by Joe Hawley, written by Grace Slick, and is an interpretation of the song of the same name by Jefferson Airplane.
An audio only version of the song, described as a "redux", was uploaded to Joe Hawley's YouTube page on the 31st of October 2017. And an audio-only video of the vocoded vocals were uploaded to the channel on December 9th, 2017.
- Similarly to We Are in Space, the track was not available in the Bandcamp version, this was most likely due to copyright reasons.
- Grace Slick cited Maurice Ravel's Bolero as an inspiration for the song in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. Coincidentally, Tally Hall briefly covered Bolero in a short scene in the South by Southwest 2007 episode of their Internet Show.
One pill makes you larger And one pill makes you small And the ones that mother gives you Don't do anything at all Go ask Alice When she's ten feet tall And if you go chasing rabbits And you know you're going to fall Tell 'em a hookah-smoking caterpillar Has given you the call Call Alice When she was just small When the men on the chessboard Get up and tell you where to go And you've just had some kind of mushroom And your mind is moving low Go ask Alice I think she'll know When logic and proportion Have fallen sloppy dead And the White Knight is talking backwards And the Red Queen's off with her head Remember what the dormouse said Feed your head Feed your head
Recorded at ASSEMBLE in Detroit, U.S.A.
