"Used To" as written by and Bruce Gilbert Graham Lewis....
Does the pain remain when the head is turned
And the body walks away?
You used to know
Does nausea ensue when you chance upon a memory of someone
You used to know?
Does warmth increase when the pulse is strong?
But the response is weak?
You used to know

I just lay down guidelines in front of me
It's similar to the things
You do to me

Does the pain remain when the head is turned
And the body walks away?
You used to know
Does nausea ensue when you chance upon a memory of someone
You used to know?
Does warmth increase when the pulse is strong
But the response is weak?
You used to know

I'll give you an example
Typically
It's less complicated than it simply
Should be

    General CommentLike Dionne Warwick's "Walk On By" but for the art-punk crowd. I love it.

    General CommentIn the context of most of 'Chairs Missing' being about mental illness/instability, I always interpreted this song as about someone with dementia...

    Especially the line "The pulse is strong but the response is weak"...they are alive, but their memory is gone and they don't acknowledge you.

    "You used to know" them but now they are just a shell of their former selves.
