Somebody's walking uptown With your friends You look They're not around Doo doo doo doo Someday with a friend And then you turn around Its the end One day with a friend And then you turn around Its the end Doo doo doo doo They're not around They're not around They're not around They're not around When you When you When you Need them
King Of The Castle (free) 05:20
I'm the king of the castle Master of all I survey Look directly into my eyes And I might just let you stay King of the castle Waiting in my little world Where all is made of gold Look directly into my eyes Watch yourself explode King of the castle I'm the king of the castle Direction is lost on the way Cannot see what's in front of me Behind is where you stay King of the castle
Never thought that I'd feel so sad Never wanted anything I had And its time that I learned to see It's enough to just believe We all will pass away No one makes us stay If there's any way to make it good I think that I should
You're lying on your back You're on the second track C'mon you're leaving here You're gone You're climbing up the walls
Dance with the wicked witch You wanna dance with the wicked witch Wicked Witch I am the wicked witch


The Farm Tapes Series features demos, finished recordings and sonic experiments recorded between 1985 and 2001 by Todd Parker with the only requirement being that the recordings were produced on a cassette 4-track machine. A Fostex X-15 was used until 1989 and from then on a Yamaha MT3X was the primary recorder.

Volume 1 - Welcome to the Farm Tapes

The Farm Tapes, Vol. 1 contain recordings that span the era from 1988's twisted Dance With the Wicked Witch through the late 90's psychedelic demos for Percolate and Jimmy Colored Glasses which appeared in re-recorded form on the Tadpoles' albums, Smoke Ghost and Whirlaway.
