Marillion

Marillion are a British rock band, formed in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England, in 1979. Their recorded studio output since 1982 is composed of seventeen albums generally regarded in two distinct eras, delineated by the departure of original frontman Fish in late 1988, and the subsequent arrival of replacement Steve Hogarth in early 1989. All four albums released with Fish were commercial successes, and the band released eleven Top 40 hits on the UK Singles Chart, including 1985's "Kayleigh", which reached No. 2 and became their biggest hit single. more »

A ragged man came shuffling through
A puppet king on the 4th of June
And butterflies from all around
Settled on his paper crown

A pretty sight it seemed to be
An avenue of eternal peace
But he said, what is here can soon burn down
I'm the king of sunset town

Watch a big wheel turning round
Some go up, some go down
Some go thirsty, some just drown
That's the law round here
Said the king of sunset town

And in the night, he comes to me
And the square becomes a battlefield
Of staring eyes that can't explain
The insanity and the greater game

Watch a big wheel turning round
Some go up, some go down
Some go thirsty, some just drown
That's the law round here
Said the king of sunset town
That's the law round here

A ragged man came shuffling through
The corridors of this white place
And as he lay his body down
I saw the scars that lined his face
And injured souls came to his bed
To hear the stories he would tell
Of butterflies and summertimes

And everyone assembled here
Remembers how it used to be
Before the 27th came
This place will never be the same
And he said, he said, I'm the king of sunset town
I'm the king of sunset town
I am the king of sunset town
I'm the king of sunset town

Watch a big wheel turning round
Some go up, some go down
Some go thirsty, some just drown
That's the law round here
I said, that's the law round here
I'm the king of sunset town
Said, I'm the king of sunset town
Yeah, I'm the king of sunset town
I'm the king
