  B                      Asus
"Hello, Is there anybody in there?

 D/F# Em
Just nod if you can hear me.

 B
Is there anyone home?

B
Come on, now.

              Asus
I hear youre feeling down.

      D/F# Em
Well I can ease your pain,

        B
Get you on your feet again.

 B                  Asus
Relax, I need some information first.

D/F# Em
Just the basic facts.

         B
Can you show me where it hurts?

 D                            Asus
   There is no pain, you are receving.

  D                           Asus
A distant ships smoke on the horizon.

C                                 G
  You are only coming through in waves.

      C                                     G
Your lips move but I cant hear what youre sayin.

     D                       Asus
When I was a child caught a fever.

     D                        Asus
My hands felt just like two balloons.

 C                           G
Now I got that feeling once again.

                                  C
I cant explain, you would not understand.

               G
This is not how I am.

Asus           C            G            D
I_____________ have become comfortably numb.


B                 Asus
Ok, Just a little pinprick.

                     D/F#  Em
There'll be no more AHHHHHHHHH!

  B
you may feel a little sick.

        B
Can you stand up?

                 Asus
I do believe its working. good.

                  D/F# Em
That'll keep you going for the show.

 B
Come on its time to go.

D                           Asus
There is no pain, you are receving.

D                             Asus
A distant ships smoke on the horizon.

C                               G
You are only coming through in waves.

C                                          G
Your lips move but I cant hear what youre sayin.

D                                Asus
When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,

 D                      Asus
Out of the corner of my eye.

  C                       G
I turned to look but it was gone.

                        C
I cannot put my finger on it now.

                         G
The child is grown, the dream is lost.

Asus           C            G            D
I_____________ have become comfortably numb.


For solo keep strumming D, Asus, D, Asus, C, G, C, G


Asus           C            G            D
I_____________ have become comfortably numb.


That's it im pretty sure thats exactly how Staind plays it. It's a little different than 
Floyd's version and the left out one of the solos. Any problems please comment! Thanks  -Tysor

the B is a Bm. And a tip for any newbs who might need it; If you are playing the whole song in drop D these are some dummified chords.

Em G C D F#/D Bm D/G (reffer to lower for relevance of D/G)

e}-0--0--X--X--X---2---X (Newbies keep in mind most of these chords
B}-0--0--5--7--7---3---7 only apply cause it's drop D. The ones
G}-0--0--5--7--7---4---7 continue to apply in standard tune are
D}-2--5--5--7--7---4---7 C, D, and Bm the C and D though the way
A}-2--5--3--5--5---2---5 they are written are usualy called C5 and
D}-2--5--X--X--4---X---5 D 5. there thats enough help.

one more comment I don't know if it's just cause I've heard the pink floyd version soooooo many times but when he says

G/D F#/D Em
there'll be no more AHHhhhh!!!

Bm
But you may feel a little sick.
