We Are Our Own Saviors (like Headless Relatives in general) has evolved in the shadows. The title, pulled from the Jethro Tull song “Wonderin’ Aloud”, which is a wonderful song, was originally chosen for a different group of songs altogether, which gave the title a certain significance. As Headless Relatives took on its own identity, however, the meaning behind the title became more complex.
This group of twelve songs is about redemption, but not in the traditional religious sense. Saviors is about how we search for meaning in our lives, how we create it through rewriting our own stories, and how we deal with the pain and horrors of life.
