[Verse]
Bm                       A
Hello, Is there any body in there?
                    G       D/F#  Em        Bm
Just nod if you can hear me,      is there anyone at home?
Bm                         A
Come on, now, I hear your feeling  down,
      G            D/F#   Em            Bm
well, I can ease  your  pain,   get you on your feet again.
Bm                      A               G          D/F#   Em
relax, I need some information, first,  just the basic facts,
         Bm
Can you show me where it hurts

[Chorus]
D                           A
There is no pain you are receding, 
D                                A        G/B
A distant ships smoke, on the horizon,
C                               G
You are only coming through in waves,
C                                               G
Your lips move, but I can't hear what your saying,
     D                       A
When I was a child, I had a fever,
  D                             A       G/B
my hands felt just like, two balloons,
C                                   G
Now I've got that feeling once again,
G                                 C
I can't explain, you would not understand,
                        G
This is not how I am,

A               G/B  C             G                D
I______________________  have become, comfortably numb.

[Verse]
Bm                      A                         G   D/F#  Em
O.K., just a little pin prick, there'll be no more (scream),
           Bm
But you may feel a little sick.  Can you stand up?
                   A                              G             D/F#  Em
I do believe it's working, good. That'll keep you going through the show,
Bm
C'mon it's time to go

[Chorus]
D                            A
There is no pain you are receding,
D                               A       G/B
A distant ships smoke on the horizon,
C                                G
You are only coming through in waves,
    C                                         G
Your lips move, but I can't hear what your saying,
    D                              A
When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse,
D                        A     G/B
Out of the corner of my eye,
C                              G
I turned to look, but it was gone,
                           C
I can not put my finger on it now,
                            G
The child is grown, the dream is gone,
A               G/B  C          G                 D
and I___________________, have become comfortably numb.
