Speaking of that...
When I was a child I (actually) had a fever.
My hands (actually) felt just like two balloons.
It was really wierd, everything I touched seemed to shrink.My hands felt like they were expanding. The other side of rooms looked like they were miles away, on the horizon so to speak. Freekin wierd, but neat too. If I wasn't so disoriented at the time it would have been really cool.
So that song has always been kind of special to me.
"There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ship's smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're sayin'.
When I was a child I had a fever.
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I got that feeling once again.
I can't explain, you would not understand.
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb"
