There's a little black spot on the sun today
There's a black hat caught in the high tree top
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign

It's the same old thing as yesterday, that's my soul up there
There's a flag pole rag and the wind won't stop, that's my soul up there
With the world turning circles running 'round my brain.
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 blue whale beached by a springtide's ebb, that's my soul up there
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign

There's a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt;
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 little black spot on the sun today
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
King of pain
