Rash of Robberies (6:42)

Cover of Year of the Crow

From Year of the Crow and 1 other release

“It’s about an elderly couple who are coming to grips with dementia. The man in the couple has dementia. It’s him trying to remember his life, but he can only remember fragments of it. So in that way it comes of as a nonsensical thing, that he’s trying to put his life together, but it’s like a puzzle that has all the wrong pieces. It doesn’t make sense to him, but he can remember certain things. And his wife is trying to cope with this man who has been her partner for 50 years and he doesn’t recognize her. The end is about her accepting his dementia and continuing to love him and accepting his exit from this life to the next one. “

“An old man grapples with his diminishing reality as he suffers from dementia. His wife of 50 years, who is unrecognizable to him, sits by his side and reads old letters to him from their past. In the end she’s saying that it’s alright he doesn’t know her, while also accepting he is near death and letting him go. Wherever he goes, she is sure he will guide her there when it is her time.”

-Chad Stokes Urmston, from PatchMusic’s interview on 2007-09-28

Solarium malaria lookin' for the stereo
Wanted to save being excommunicated from the area, it's okay
In the city said, he cut a cord of wood
No bigger than a thimble but still plenty good, it's okay
