      comfortably numb

      the problem with some people
      is the trouble with listening
      to other people
      bothered by other people
      my ears open out only one way
      and swallow everyone's
      pain pain pain pain
      yes yes i see
      some are all ears
      no tongue
      their heart in their ears
      til finally they're deaf
      numbed by the suffering
      of others
      their tongue still
      silent they retreat
      with heart into their head
      to survive alone trapped
      safely entombed embalmed
      reluctant beauty preserved in ice
      solitary ---cold--- stars
      who cared too much
      nobody listened to them
      poor them poor me
      after all we're all
      wounded bleeding screaming
      what can we offer except
      the sound of our blood
      usually the wrong type
      no longer safe to offer anything else
      like timeless blissful entanglement
      where hearts meet in flesh
      sigh moan hot wetness
      so simple no more
      flesh heart tongue head
      i've passed the point no return
      less than human hope not
      mebbe i'll meet one of them
      poor deaf frozen tongue hearts
      mebbe i can talk
      mebbe they can listen
      mebbe i can listen
      together with others
      big deal
      will it change one goddam thing
      probably not
      what are the odds
      forget about it
