She's sliding, she's sliding down to the depth of the world
She's fighting, she's fighting the urge to make sand out of pearls

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