king of pain lyrics – mudvayne

[the police cover]

there’s a little black spot on the sun today
that’s my soul up there.
it’s the same old sh*t 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 in 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
there’s a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall
there’s a blue whale beached by a springtime’s ebb
there’s a b*tterfly trapped in a spider’s web

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 huntsman’s pack
there’s a black-winged gull with a broken back
there’s a little black spot on the sun today.
it’s the same old sh*t as yesterday,
that’s my soul up there…

i have stood here before in the pouring rain
with the world turning circles running ’round my brain.
i guess i always thought you could end this reign,
but it’s my destiny to be the king of pain…

i’ll always be king of pain…
