Comfortably Numb Pink Floyd / The Wall Hello Is there anybody in there ? Just nod if you can hear me Is there anyone home ? Come on, now I hear you're feeling down Well I can ease your pain Get you on your feet again Relax I need some information first Just the basic facts Can you show me where it hurts ? There is no pain, you are receding A distant ship's smoke on the horizon You are only coming through in waves Your lips move but I can't hear what you're sayin' When I was a child I had a fever My hands felt just like two balloons Now I got that feeling once again I can't explain, you would not understand This is not how I am I have become comfortably numb Ok Just a little pinprick. <ping> There'll be no more --Aaaaaahhhhh! But you may feel a little sick Can you stand up ? I do believe it's working. Good That'll keep you going for the show Come on it's time to go There is no pain, you are receding A distant ship's smoke on the horizon You are only coming through in waves Your lips move but I can't hear what you're sayin' When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse Out of the corner of my eye I turned to look but it was gone I cannot put my finger on it now The child is grown, the dream is gone I have become comfortably numb
