HEAVEN CAN WAIT Sign in or register

 
She's sliding
She's sliding down into the dregs of the world
She's fighting
She's fighting the urge to made sand out of pearls

Heaven can wait and hell's too far to go
Somewhere between what you need and what you know
And they're trying to drive that escalator into the ground

She's hiding
She's hiding on a battleship of baggage and bones
There's thunder
There's lightning in an avalanche of faces you know

Heaven can wait and hell's too far to go
Somewhere between what you need and what you know
And they're trying to drive that escalator into the ground

You left your credentials in a Greyhound station
With a first aid kit and a flashlight
Going to a desert unknown

Heaven can wait and hell's too far to go
Somewhere between what you need and what you know
And they're trying to drive that escalator into the ground
