The evidence is on the page
Not much to show for so much rage
It makes me smile
You lost it somehow

Solitude was your only choice
Bitterness your only voice
I saw your face
The time is talking now

Boy you looked so bad!

You make the earth revolve
You make the camera sing
No conscience can absolve
The Sun King

A small imbalanced vain recluse
You use the planets to excuse
Your costumed smile
Your childish abuse

The gloves are off there are no rules
I'm a regicidal fool
Who'd change your face
But change would just improve

Boy you looked so sad!

You make the earth revolve
You make the camera sing
No conscience can absolve
The Sun King

Here comes the rain
To test our will
Here comes the rain
To cleanse again

You make the earth revolve
You make the camera sing
No conscience can absolve
The Sun King

    General CommentCurt: "It's about my ex-partner [Roland Orzabal]. There was a Tears For Fears track after I left called "Fish Out Of Water" which is about me. I wrote "Sun King" after I heard "Fish Out Of Water." I was kind of flattered that someone would write a song about me. The whole thing was, in Roland's typical way, a very intelligent effort to write a song. And I'm trying to think of what would be a comical way of giving an answer. "Sun King" is incredibly base and angry. The thing is, I don't want people to get it completely out of perspective, even though it's incredibly mean and nasty. But when you actually start on these things, the song tends to take on a life of its own. The actual anger, as opposed to the direction of the anger, takes over. In the end, you semi-forget who it's about."
