Hello? (Hello? Hello? 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'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 smoke on the horizon
You are 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 (okay, okay, okay)
Just a little pinprick
There'll be no more, ah
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, smoke on the horizon
You are 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 just like to say that this song was not based on any one band member's life. If any, it was based on the life of "Syd" Barrett. I've seen "The Wall" more times than I can count, and on the DVD version of it, you can listen to commentary of Roger Waters and the director, Alan Parker. The beginning scene where it shows "Pink" sitting in the chair with the cigarette burnt to the filter and the ashes haven't fallen, he explains how he once found "Syd" in the same position. That he was so comfortably numb he hadn't noticed the burning on his fingers. He also speaks of how, yes BradNZ, they were all on drugs during most of their shows. So I do think that this song does relate to drugs, but not directly. I think the song is more about how "Pink" was mentally and emotionally very tired and stressed out by all the "bricks" in his wall. I think "The Wall" shows a very good iinterpretation of the song. This is just my opinion. Don't get pissed off if it's not your's also.
