Frank Black – His Kingly Cave lyrics

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 at their mistake as their skin began to
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 jumpsuit on a headless cast
Polished jewels under two inch class
And bullets 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 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
Hey but it's too late for to go back now
Enter into his kingly cave.
