Comfortably Numb

Page history last edited by PBworks 14 years, 5 months ago

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.
