Lyrics:
(Devil's Workshop Version)
He wants an altered state
Inside the mansion walls
She says she’d rather wait
Yeah, for evening to fall
But still the cap they ate
And with a drink they chased
The ghost that called

They went to celebrate
They went to have a ball
Everyone gathered at the gates
But it wasn’t good at all
The sky was turning grey
They laughed a their mistake
As their skin began to crawl

Hey, but it’s too late for to go back now
They closed the gates and the scene was set
Enter into His Kingly Cave
Don’t worry the leopards won’t bite you
Wipe that big tear away

See they got jumpsuits on the headless cast
Polished jewels under two inch glass
And bullet holes in Vernon’s room out back
Don’t worry the posse won’t shoot you
No more crying today

He’s tripping over graves
As the rain begins to fall
And finally they escape
When the shuttle bus is called
The mourners now abate
As one begins to say
I scream I scream for all

Hey, but it's too late for to go back now
They closed the gates and the scene was set
Enter into His Kingly Cave
Don’t worry the leopards won’t bite you
Wipe that big tear away

See they got jumpsuits on the headless cast
Polished jewels under two inch glass
And bullet holes in Vernon’s room out back
Don’t worry the posse won’t shoot you
No more crying today

He wants an altered state
Inside the mansion walls
She says she’d rather wait
Yeah, for evening to fall
But still the cap they ate
And with a drink they chased
The ghost that called


(SSMVGD Version)
He wants an altered state
Inside the mansion walls
She says sheąd rather wait, yeah
For evening to fall
But still the cap they ate
And with a drink they chased
The ghost that called

They went to celebrate
They went to have a ball
Everyone gathered at the gates
But it wasn't good at all
A hilarious mistake
The mood was grave
Their skin began to crawl

Hey but it's too late for to go back now
They closed the gates and the scene was set
Enter into his kingly cave
Don't worry the leopards wonąt bite you
Wipe that big tear away

See they got jumpsuits on a headless cast
Polished jewels under two-inch glass and
Bullet holes in Vernon's room out back
Donąt worry the posse won't shoot you
No more crying today

He's tripping over graves
As rain begins to fall
And finally they escape
When the shuttlebus is called
The silence now was great
Until one mourner states,
"I scream, I scream for all"

Hey but it's too late for to go back now
They closed the gates and the scene was set
Enter into his kingly cave
Don't worry the leopards won't bite you
Wipe that big tear away

See they got jumpsuits on a headless cast
Polished jewels under two-inch glass
Bullet holes in Vernonąs room out back
Don't worry the posse won't shoot you
No more crying today

Hey but it's too late for to go back now
Too late for to go back now
Enter into his kingly cave

He wants an altered state
Inside the mansion walls
She says she'd rather wait, yeah
For evening to fall (fade out)


Quotes:
"[His Kingly Cave] is about Graceland. It's about a trip that I took to Graceland many years ago. I thought it would be fun to take hallucinogenic mushrooms while I was there. I was much younger than I am now. It's not something I would really do now. I was young and dumb and I went to Graceland with my girlfriend and we took mushrooms and it was a horrible and tense day. That's a telling of that day in that story."
