Vanishing Mind Lyrics


On the longest day
The Vanishing Mind
Knows not when the day ends
Who could care for you
Would could understand

In the room sealed shut
And you’re not what you were
So much sweeter now
That there’s nothing left to
Remember you

It’s what brought you here
It’s what keeps you here
Who could care for you
Who could understand
Know not when the day ends or begins anymore
In the hallway and waiting again

Here we are, here we sit
The light turning grey
Your smile brings me back
To the longest day
The vanishing mind

Vanishing Mind
  • This song takes on the topic of Alzheimer's disease and dementia - something Calexico songwriters Joey Burns and John Convertino both had to deal with. Convertino's mother had Alzheimer's and died from the disease; Burns' grandmother was afflicted with dementia and didn't recognize him on her deathbed.

    The last track on the Algiers album, Convertino got the idea for the song after reading an article about death row inmates in California who have dementia or Alzheimer's. The article explained how other inmates are called upon to help out in these cases. This led to the theme of the song, which is about caring for others regardless of circumstance.
