What’s In A Name?
The Savior Complex derived their name from something we see in our lives and culture on a daily basis, often without realizing it. The savior complex is defined as: “A psychological construct which makes a person feel the need to save other people. This person has a strong tendency to seek people who desperately need help and to assist them, often sacrificing their own needs.”
Does that sound like someone you know? Does that sound like you?
What’s especially interesting is how deep these three words go. On the surface, selflessly helping someone is undoubtedly a noble deed. When you analyze this complex further, it makes you think… Are a savior’s actions any less noble if the end result isn’t favorable for the person in need? Is a savior complex always driven by pure motives? Is it better to save people instead of leaving them responsible for helping themselves? As humans, do we all have a bit of savior complex in us?
Their music has similar qualities to this age-old construct. Every person who listens to the lyrics will connect with them in different ways, finding different meaning and asking themselves different questions. That’s the beauty of music that has the power to touch your soul, connecting with the struggles and triumphs we all feel every day.
