"Heaven Can Wait" as written by and Beck Hansen....
She's sliding, she's sliding down to the depth of the world
She's fighting, she's fighting the urge to make a

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 ago
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 ? 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

    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.
