The first single from our upcoming debut album, released in September.


drive faster, we're losing her heartbeat
and after all we've been through,
we can't disintegrate tonight
and the radio sings lullabies in black and white,
to keep us loveless

this ambulance isn't moving fast enough

feel the wheels spin, the asphalt is giving in
every road knows what we've seen
we said that these two hearts were lost and found home
but our home is withering away
her pulse keeps fading, she's giving up hope

time is running out, with every root
growing from my legs
her love is sowing me into -
her love is rotting in her chest

but words won't keep you alive
if there's no love left in you, i have to take my heart back

because this is not my home
she's just skin and bones
but what am i, am i monster or man?
she's innocent and pure – so i can't bear
the sight of her dead limbs shaking
as they stitch her legs to her death bed
do i resuscitate her or do i let her go?

there must be more to life than love
but i can't let go without a heart

not strong enough to carry on
when living in the past is the only comfort i have
even when it kills me, every day
not strong enough to carry on to take my heart back
i'll die by your side
this ambulance isn't moving...
this ambulance isn't moving fast enough.
