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
And 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

Okay
Just a little pinprick
There’ll be no more
But you may feel a little sick

Can you stand up?
I do believe it’s working good
That’ll keep you going through 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

And I have become comfortably numb

  1. Ahhhhhhhh I have always loved this song. Some of the most emotionally provoking lyrics and music I ever heard.

  2. Hi Ronnie
    Yes I remember you adding Song facts to your blog. Anyway, until today, I really didn’t know what the song was written about for sure. I am sure many did think it was about Pink Floyd and their drug infested life. To read the truth about what they were actually writing about was nice. It certainly was a surprise and a good one. the wall was another one of my favorites. I applauded their sense of communicating things.
