Lyrics

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 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

Testo

Sta scivolando, sta scivolando giù nella profondità del mondo
Sta combattendo, sta combattendo l'impulso di fare un

Il paradiso può attendere
E l'inferno è troppo lontano fa
Da qualche parte tra
Cosa ti serve e cosa sai
E stanno cercando di spingere quella scala mobile nel terreno

Si nasconde, si nasconde su una nave da guerra di bagagli e ossa
C'è un tuono, c'è un fulmine in una valanga di volti che conosci

Il paradiso può attendere
E l'inferno è troppo lontano fa
Da qualche parte tra
Cosa ti serve e cosa sai
E stanno cercando di spingere quella scala mobile nel terreno

Hai lasciato le tue credenziali in una stazione di levriero
Con un kit di primo soccorso e una torcia elettrica
Andare in un deserto sconosciuto

Il paradiso può attendere
E l'inferno è troppo lontano fa
Da qualche parte tra
Cosa ti serve e cosa sai
E stanno cercando di spingere quella scala mobile nel terreno
