The Directionals exclusive single, Crocodiles, as made available through the Directionals email newsletter.


On our way, to find a lake that restores age
crown my head, is that all there is to when we found you
rhyme i bring, tales of wisdom young and old a
nighttime drink, and all your insides melt too easy oh

call it quits, time to query absinthe eating
caramel, cold scotch intensifies your error
i'm late, got your insides hot too easy
crocodiles, wage a war inside your sinew,

waiting on tonight, long wind weighs us down
on the fence to ride, wild night, trails of scary stars
oh we are the dark,

the north wind is abound, listen to this joke
stirling nightime cold, waves are breaking holes
living on a bow, a life lead far aground
languish and debris, howling oh we are the dark, cars and tranquil eyes

tirade, on a windfall in the straights
you sighed my way, crushing blow my words are thick
deny the scene, hiding in a fantasy
covered egg, all the riches can't take back my life


released December 14, 2013
Written, composed, and produced by Mark Poe
