Sound of silence,
Echo in myself
A war that never ends
Is this the place that I call home,
To find what I've become
Walk along the path unknown,
We live, we love, we lie

The deeper meaning of “The Spectre”: Alan Walker intended the song “the Spectre” the represent someone who fears the outcome of breakup. This is mainly represented by the lyrics of the song, using fear, “as I scream your name; before I fade away; deep in the dark... there's a ghost inside of me; nice to meet you voice inside my head.” But also using awe and love, “can you hear me; do you need me; we live ,we love, we lie;” the connotations represent resent, fear, love, and awe. Furthermore, the deeper meaning lies in the song title “The Spectre.” The word spectre, also known as specter, means ‘a ghost, something widely feared as a possible unpleasant or dangerous occurrence.’ however, not only is there the word ‘Spectre’ but is “the Spectre” joined by a determiner, creates the term, “the Spectre” to be an adjective to describe “Alan Walker” as frightful and fearful. Thus, in between the lines, Alan Walker intended, to resemble someone who fears the outcome of breakup.

Its to me about feeling alone lost in this world trying to find a home.we live we love wr lie. Its how existence started out so strong and now is full of lies. We live for love but all we do is lie. And its ok because in the end the only thing that matters is the ghost the being inside that will fade away. So ill be here now to live to love to lie if it brings hope and peace because i found home and its not here.

We live we love we lie. To me it can mean ma y things the first is to die a loving life, a life of lies, and a fully filled life where we accomplished our dreams. I dont need a light probably means that its the persons place inside of them there mind is probably a dark place.

I think spectre is a song about death. I know this is going to get bad ratings because death is a really dark topic, but I'm doing it anyway. The we live we love we lie is about the process of living. The we live is being born, the we love is getting in a relationship, and the we lie is death, as in lying in the grave. While in the lyrics is "There's a ghost INSIDE me", after that it says: "It all belongs to the other side", with the other side being death. This also explains the "before i fade away". The "hello hello can you hear me?" is the narrator asking if they can be still be heard, and also indicates that the narrator just died. The "deep in the dark, I don't need the light" could mean one of two things. The first is the fact that it is dark down in the grave, which it probably is. The second possibility is that the narrator is in hell, which is a very dark and evil place.

We live ,we love,we lie..
Having an affair to others..
It is the ghost inside..
Your in the dark but you don't need a light..your enjoying your love affairs..
But "lights" represent the truth..

I think Alan Walker's song "Spectre" is about feeling lost in life or even without oneself

I think it's about someone who is fighting with himself/herself inside his head, and is debating what he could have done differently- nice to meet you, voice inside my head, and also about someone who is suffering from a breakup- can you hear me as i scream your name. He might be describing his relationship- we live, we love, we lie, and how the relationship was impure, but he is suffering without it.

I think it’s kinda about human nature. Especially the “we live we love we lie” line. Sometimes, lies are part of life. For some reason it seems like humans are nothing but blips in time... that’s a bit dark but that’s what I think...
