Song Meaning
Verse 1
Hello (hello hello), is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone home?
see'mon (c'mon see'mon), now,
I hear you're feelin' down.
Well, I can ease your pain,
Get you on your feet again.
Relax (relax 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.
You lips move, but I can't hear what you're saying.
When I was a child, I had a fever.
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I've got that feeling once again,
I can't explain, you would not understand,
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.
I have become comfortably numb.
OK (OK OK) just a little pinprick.
There'll be no more (scream),
But you may feel a little sick.
Can you stand up (stand up, stand up)?
I do believe it's working good.
That'll keep you going for the show.
see'mon 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.
You lips move, but I can't hear what you're saying.
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
