  • 02:42 Lyrics Lessons of the Dead

    “The dead teach us so much about life.”

    Don’t invite anyone in

    Don’t invite anything in

    “The dead teach us so much about life.”

    Something was wrong

    “The dead teach us so much about life.”

    Don’t invite anyone in

    Don’t invite anything in

    “The dead teach us so much about life.”

    Whispers and cold

    Whispers and cold

    All there is

    Drawn in, drawn in

    Something was wrong

    Something was wrong

    I was found, now am lost

    Am I between again?

    Did I live or did I die?

    Did I die to live?

    There are thoughts in the void

    Something’s very very  wrong

    The children know

    Whispers and cold

    “The dead teach us so much about life.”

    Don’t invite anyone in

    Don’t invite anything in

    “The dead teach us so much about life.”

     

NOTES
Leanna Renee Hieber is a gothic author. Her books are delightfully dark and spooky and peopled with decadent Victorian characters. These books are so incredible and I highly recommend them! So when Leanna approached us to do a theme song for her series, The Spectral City Series, I got so excited. I read carefully through The Spectral City (book 1) and paid attention to which phrases jumped out at me, almost as if the lyrics were in spectral form and I could channel them the way the main character Eve and her close circle of friends (also mediums) channels the spirits. We used a lot of musical parts (layers) to depict the realities Eve has to navigate, whether spectral or corporeal, so listen for the different bass and vocal parts, along with other musical ghostly apparitions.
