about

Carpet Farm Chicago

Carpet Farm has been recording together for nearly two hundred years. Former bandmates in Wendigo, Carpet Farm really came to be a dozen years ago when Nate moved to Chicago and Scott remained in Lawrence Kansas. After years of trading files through the mail and the internet and making annual visits to each other's locales, Carpet Farm finally began releasing music in 2010. ... more

Track Name: 20 Bucks
I can't loan you
Even 20 bucks
I know it's not a whole lot but you've shown that you suck
And I'm not willing to pretend that you and I are still friends

I can't trust you
As far as I can throw you
Your squinty little eyes are peering into the light
And the tinder box of your soul will surely catch on fire
Track Name: Downtown
There is a version of this that has words, but this isn't it.
Track Name: Even in Death
You can bury me in the ocean
You can bury me under ground
You can scatter my ashes all around
Even in death there's comedy to be found

Even in death there's comedy to be found

Even in death there's comedy to be found

I've been thinking about someday after
I've been thinking about running down
Something funny even in disaster
Even in death there's comedy to be found

Even in death there's comedy to be found

Even in death there's comedy to be found
Track Name: Vacations
The with words version is called Kenya. This ain't that.
Track Name: Toronto
I wouldn't lead a horse to water
If I thought it would
If I thought it would swim away
Oh how many horses you think swim away from Chicago
More than you'd think I would say
Yeah
Woah
Oh I'm gonna grab me that pony
yeah ah yah
And I'm gonna swim full away
I'm gonna swim all the way to Toronto
Gonna live there for the rest of my days
The rest of my days
The rest of my days
The rest of my days
Toronto
Track Name: Snaky Pete
Watch out for Snaky Pete
Watch out for Snaky Pete
Watch out for Snaky Pete
Watch out for Snaky Pete
Watch out for Snaky Pete
Watch out for Snaky Pete
Watch out for Snaky Pete
Watch out for Snaky Pete
Watch out for Snaky Pete
Watch out for Snaky Pete
Watch out
Watch out
Watch out
Watch out
Watch out
Watch out
Watch out
Watch out
Watch out
Track Name: Sedative
Been worrying about nothing
Now I'm worrying about worrying
There is a primordial worry
Hidden inside each quark and then buried
Need something to make my worry end
I need a sedative
Need something to make the worry end
Need a sedative and I need it now now now
Need a sedative and I need it now now now
Need some of what your on

Got a warm place to lay my head
Don't have to wonder how I'm getting fed
There is no reason for concern
There is enough fuel for the slow burn
Need something to make the worry end
Need something to make the worry end
Need a sedative
