The Police

The Police was an English rock band formed in London in 1977. For the vast majority of their history, the band consisted of Sting (lead vocals, bass), Andy Summers (guitar) and Stewart Copeland (drums). The Police became globally popular in the late 1970s and are generally regarded as one of the first New Wave groups to achieve mainstream success, playing a style of rock that was influenced by punk, reggae, and jazz. more »

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
