                                    About this chords version:
                                        There are 3 chord tabs for this song. One is very poor, the other two are accurate but have very simple beginner chords. After playing repeatedly this song, listening repeatedly to various live/acoustic versions and covers, I came to the conclusion that it has some beautiful transitions and plays which can be transposed acoustically rather nicely. This tab does not give detailed indication on the plays, but when you see the transition chords and listen to the song, they should feet immediately into place.

Bm                            A  Asus2
Hello, Is there anybody in there?
G               G/F#    Em                Bm          
Just nod if you can hear me,      is there anyone at home?
Bm                                      A      Asus4
Come on, now, I hear your feeling  down,
      G             G/F#     Em         Bm              
well, I can ease  your  pain,   get you on your feet again.

relax, I need some information, first,  just the basic facts,
         Bm         
Can you show me where it hurts

D                      A      Asus4
There is no pain you are receding, 
D                             A  Asus2
A distant ships smoke, on the horizon,
C                            G Gadd4      C                                   G Gadd4
You are only coming through in waves, Your lips move, but I can't hear what your saying,
     D                            A      Asus4
When I was a child, I had a fever,
D                                   A  Asus2
  my hands felt just like, two ballons,
C                               G   G*                                    C
Now I've got that feeling once again, I can't explain, you would not understand,
                     G    Gadd4     
This is not how I am,
A         Asus2      C               G                    D
I______________________  have become, comfortably numb.

Bm                      A                         G   G/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    Asus4                     G             G/F#  Em
I do believe it's working, good. That'll keep you going throught the show,
Bm
C'mon it's time to go

D                            A  Asus4   D                               A  Asus4
There is no pain you are receding, A distant ships smoke on the horizon,
C                                G Gadd4              C                                      G G*
You are only coming through in waves,     Your lips move, but I can't hear what your

When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse,
D                        A Asus2       C                               G
Out of the corner of my eye,             I turned to look, but it was gone,
                           C
I can not put my finger on it now, 
                            G             Gadd4
The child is grown, the dream is gone,
A               G/B  C                 G                  D      Dsus4
