There’s a little black spot on the sun today

Theres a little black spot on the sun today
Its the same old thing as yesterday
Theres a black hat caught in a high tree top
Theres a flag pole rag and the wind wont stop

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running round my brain
I guess Im always hoping that youll end this reign
But its my destiny to be the king of pain

Theres a little black spot on the sun today
Thats my soul up there
Its the same old thing as yesterday
Thats my soul up there
Theres a black hat caught in a high tree top
Thats my soul up there
Theres a flag pole rag and the wind wont stop
Thats my soul up there

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running round my brain
I guess Im always hoping that youll end this reign
But its my destiny to be the king of pain

Theres a fossil thats trapped in a high cliff wall
Thats my soul up there
Theres a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall
Thats my soul up there
Theres a blue whale beached by a springtides ebb
Thats my soul up there
Theres a butterfly trapped in a spiders web
Thats my soul up there

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running round my brain
I guess Im always hoping that youll end this reign
But its my destiny to be the king of pain

Theres a king on a throne with his eyes torn out
Theres a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt
Thers a rich man sleeping on a golden bed
Theres a skeleton choking on a crust of bread

King of pain

Theres a red fox thorn by a huntsmans pack
Thats my soul up there
Theres a black winged gull with a broken back
Thats my soul up there
Theres a little black spot on the sun today
Its the same old thing as yesterday

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running round my brain
I guess Im always hoping that youll end this reign
But its my destiny to be the king of pain

King of pain
King of pain
King of pain
Ill always be king of pain
Ill always be king of pain
I will always be king of pain…
