Alice Invictus debuts new song “Dust to Dust” about Max Lightwood

The brilliant Alice Invictus is at it again.

We interviewed the book singer-songwriter a couple of weeks ago and she then teased about a future “Mortal Instruments” song in the works.

“I wrote a memoriam song for little Max Lightwood,” she said. “Well, it’s more of an ‘in the aftermath of Max’s death’ about how the rest of the family and Jace and Clary have had this terrible tragedy, but in Max’s memory they have to continue on fighting the good fight.”

Check it out:

I, for one, am blown away. I think it’s a beautiful and moving piece for the gone but never forgotten Max Lightwood.

Smoke rises in the city of glass
Oh how things have come to pass

White figures in a fog of grey
Such a beautiful sunrise lights such a dark day

Swirling in the Idris sky
Ashes of a Nephilim to young to die

Maxwell, Maxwell
We bid you farewell
But in our fight we cannot pause
Even you, in death, still serve the cause
Loyalty, courage and trust
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust x2

Alec’s tear’s hidden by long black bangs
Izzy’s cries drown out when the church bell rang
Jace’s grief pushed down inside
So nobody will see him cry

Robert and Mayrse still too shocked to feel
The absence of their son is just too real
As the Glass City sky is choked
With the soot and ash of Max’s smoke


Angel wings…carry you home x4
