"Heaven Can Wait" as written by and Beck Hansen....
Red River, keep on rolling down
It's been a long time since I let my hair hang down
I'll take my time before I go under the ground
Oh dandelion, tell me what you're thinking now

Shape I'm in, I better get back home soon
I got one eye on the road and one eye on the big black moon
Dandelion, won't you tell me what to do

Iron-sides rusting in the railroad rain
Now I found out what the Captain of the Morning was saying
Dandelion, better hope your mother's praying

Dumb luck is only the luck I ever knew
I'd make a wish but I don't think it'd ever come true
Dandelion, I guess I'll leave it up to you

Belle Starr, she doesn't have any shoes
She walks crooked and paints her eyelids blue
Dandelion, I wanna go there too

    General Commenta few corrections:
    "the urge to make sand out of pearls"
    "on a battleship of baggage and bones"
    and the chorus should read:
    "somewhere between what you need and what you know"

    General CommentI personally think it's "down to the dregs of the world" in the first line. Also, I think the last line in the bridge goes "going to a desert unknown." Such a fantastically depressive song.
