Comfortably Numb

Comfortably Numb

Hello,
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone at home?

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

I have become comfortably numb

O.K.
Just a little pin prick
There’ll be no more aaaaaaaah!
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.

Comfortably Numb‘ ~Roger Waters feat. Eddie Vedder~

I know there are Pink Floyd purists that would avoid this version, but you guys know me…..and my love of any song featuring Eddie Vedder….hell……I LOVE Eddie Vedder….I’ll say it! 😀 I found this spot at the newly opened sim, Rummu, and I spotted this mural out in the water right away! It spoke to me, I’ve been that sinking woman. I sat looking at this, remembering when I was that sinking woman, when all I wanted to do was sink into oblivion in any way possible, to make the pain end. Now as I look back on my life, I want to take that version of me and hold her….assure her everything will be OK….and to never give up. I made it through those times, and hope they never come back…….it doesn’t make me sad that I went through it…..I’m thankful, it brought me to where I am today, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!
