The songs, above all else, deal with the strength that is necessary to go your own way. Songwriter Chris Wirsig says, Its about being strong, fighting against adversities. You look back, you learn from the past, and maybe you also despair of it. But you stick to your intentions, do what you want, and you go for it, regardless of what others say, regardless of which opinions you hear, regardless of if youll succeed or fail.
Throughout the twelve songs of Wisdom & Failure the protagonists keep looking back, and are haunted by the ghosts of the past. Hurtful and dunning memories of past events (Last Scene, Alone Now) stand next to strong characters that carve their own path (Let Me Walk Alone, Losing Sight Of The Coast) amongst tragic stories about failure (The Nine Days Queen, Sunset Castle). But above all else remains wisdom and strength, both of which can arise from failure (Wisdom And Failure).
The relationship between wisdom and failure is also portrayed on the cover, which has been designed by the young Californian artist Cassidy Bliss Cooper. It shows the title songs two girls called Wisdom and Failure in watercolor.
