There's a little black spot on the sun today 
It's the same old thing as yesterday 
There's a black hat caught in the high tree top
There's a flag pole rag and the wind won't stop
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain 
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign 
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

There's a little black spot on the sun today, that's my soul up there 
It's the same old thing as yesterday, that's my soul up there 
There's a black hat caught in a high tree top, that's my soul up there 
There's a flag pole rag and the wind won't stop, that's my soul up there 
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain 
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign 
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

There's a fossil that's trapped in a high cliff wall, that's my soul up there 
There's a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall, that's my soul up there 
There's a blue whale beached by a springtide's ebb, that's my soul up there 
There's a butterfly trapped in a spider's web, that's my soul up there 
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain 
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign 
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

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

There's a red fox torn by a huntmen's pack, that's my soul up there 
There's a black winged gull with a broken back, that's my soul up there 
There's a little black spot on the sun today 
It's 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 I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign 
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain
King of pain
King of pain, king of pain, I always be king of pain
