"Comfortably Numb" as written by Roger Waters and David Jon Gilmour....
Hello?
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?

Come on, now
I hear you're feeling down
Well I can ease your pain
Get you on your feet again

Relax
I'll 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 the only coming through in waves
Your 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

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 the only coming through in waves
Your 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

I have become comfortably numb

    General Commenti'd appreciate it better if i was a fan of the genre, but i'm not. though, it translates well, in my opinion. it's an interesting cover. definitely interesting. to me it doesn't ruin the song, since it's so different. atleast it wasn't like fred durst's cover of behind blue eyes. i thought his cover was awful. but that's just me.

    General CommentI know, if you love Pink Floyd, this will probably sound like nails on a chalkboard the first couple of times. But take off your cool and let yourself get into it. It's really an incredible cover. The lyrics apply well to both a dark heroin stupor and an ecstasy fueled dance trance.

    General CommentI love this cover but not as much as the original. The original is pure genius. The majority of Floyd is pure genius. Especially when David solos.

    General CommentI've just heard this for the first time on some music channel and the first thought that entered my head was "Who the hell released the copyright for this???"

    Floyd created a strong, moody masterpiece and this song has torn it to shreds

    General Commenti wouldnt say torn it to shreds, i think thats a bit overly dramatic. I really dont think this version of the song ruins the original at all because it's so different.
