"Lessons of the Dead" The official Spectral City theme song by Valentine Wolfe

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.

lyrics

“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.”
