Comfortably Numb

Innhold

Sangen viser når Pink har gjenopplevd svært mange negative opplevelser og blitt veldig syk.
Han blir funnet neddopet på hotellrommet og blir båret bort

Musikalske trekk

Låta starter med ekko-effekter,- kan tolkes som om et rop som ikke blir besvart men kastet tilbake til seg selv igjen. Sirenelyder;- kan gi assosiasjoner om å tilkalle hjelp (sykebil/ politibil). Musikken er avslappende og gi et positivt inntrykk;- kan tokles som om Pink er innestengt bak muren sin og foreløpig fornøyd med det. Dramatisk gitarsolo mot slutten.
Hello, is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone home?

Tekst

Come on, now, I hear you're feeling down.
Well I can ease your pain
And 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.

Ok, just a little pinprick.
There'll be no more (aaaaaaaaah!)
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.

Fra filmen Pink Floyd - The Wall
