Hello, Is there any body in there ?
Just nod if you can hear me, is th ere any one at home ?
C ome on now I hear you're feelin'down
Well, I can ease your pa in, get you on your feet again.
Relax, I need some infor mation, first, jus t th e basic facts,
Can you s how me where it hurts
T here is no pain you are rec eding,
A distant ship smokes on the hor izon,
Y ou are only coming through in w aves,
Y our lips move, but I can't hear what your sayin g,
When I was a child, I had a fever,
My hands felt just like, two ba llons ,
N ow I've got that feeling once again ,
I can't explain, you would not und erstand,
This is not how I am,
I ha ve b ecome, comf ortably numb.
O.K., just a little pi n prick, there'll be no more (screa m),
But you may feel a little sick. Can you stand up ?
I do believe it's w orking, good. That'll keep you going throug ht the show,
C 'mon it's time to go
T here is no pain you are rece ding,
A distant ships smoke on the hor izon,
Y ou are only coming through in wa ves,
Your lips move, but I can't hear what your sa ying,
When I was a child, I caught a fle eting glimpse,
O ut of the corner of my e ye,
I turned to look, but it was go ne,
I can not put my finger on it now,
The child is grown, the drea m is gone,
A nd I have be come comfortably numb.
