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?

 

 

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.

 

 

A G D/F# Em

relax, I need soem information, first, just the basic facts,

 

 

Bm

Can you show me where it hurts

 

 

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 ballons,

 

 

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

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 throught the show,

 

 

Bm

C'mon it's time to go

 

 

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.
