Bm [Vs1: Roger Waters]
Hellno?
Hello?
A
I am your future in despair
Is there anybody in there ?
G G/F# Em
Hear your lover crying in me
Just nod if you can hear me
Bm
Promise to help save our home ?
Is there anyone at home ?
Bm
Buy less now
Come on now
A
Products that burn us down
I hear your feeling down
G G/F# Em
Can you feel our pain
I can ease your pain
Bm
What you buy kills us again
How can you kill again and again
And get you on your feet again
Bm
Wacked
Relax
A
Now you say you are disturbed
I’ll need some information first
G G/F# Em
You know we’re going fast
Just the basic facts
Bm
Can I show you how it hurts?
Can you show me where it hurts?

D A [Ch: David Gilmour]
There is pain in passion losing its destiny
There is no pain you are receding
D A
A future lover calls from the horizon
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
G/B C G
You’re to join and come through the waves
You are only coming through in waves
G/B C G
Your lips may kiss, if you help slow down the dying
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
D A
Stop your killing and cool the fever
When I was a child I had a fever
D A
Stop buying from those that feed the typhoons
My hands felt just like two balloons
G/B C G
Now we won’t get this chance again, science explains,
Now I’ve got that feeling once again, I can’t explain,
G/B C G
Your future understands, Will the money keep ruling your hands
You would not understand, This is not how I am

A Bm C 9 G D
You have become comfortable scum.
I have become comfortably numb.

A D A C G C G [Guitar Solo]

A D G D
You have become comfortable scum
You have become comfortably numb.

Bm [Vs2: Waters]
Betray
O.K.
G
I again your future speaks
Just a little pinprick
Em
There’s been too much aaaaaaaah!
There’ll be no more aaaaaaaah!
Bm
Our money can make us well or sick
But you may feel a little sick
Bm Bm9 Bm
Can you stand up?
Can you stand up?
A
Is it possible to buy less, good
I do believe it’s working, good
Can you change that?
Can you stand up?
Tell me again you’ll stop selling out, good
I do believe it’s working, good
G
Waste less to give us more time at the show
That’ll keep you going through the show
Bm
Burn less or it will blow.
Come on it’s time to go.

D A [Chorus: Gilmour]
Help stop the pain, now another is pleading
There is no pain, you are receding
D A
Your future love calls on the horizon
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
G/B C G
You’ll both be coming through the waves
You are only coming through in waves
G/B C G
Your lips will kiss each other, if you weren’t lying
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
D A
When your kindest heart is wild, you’ll catch this fleeting chance
When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse
D A
To survive and dive into a lover’s eye
Out of the corner of my eye
G/B C G
Turn to save love before its gone
I turned to look but it was gone
G/B C
Can I put my fear aside for now
I cannot put my finger on it now
G
Your future is grown, its dream lives on
The child is grown, The dream is gone

Asus A G Cadd9 G D
If you put away your comfortable scum.
If you don’t become comfortably numb.

concedes that the consumer life has numbed the empathy
