1. a state of severe alienation and burnout. When the pressures of life and the evils, insanity and corruption of the outside world are too much and you build a mental wall and you shut yourself out from everything and everyone. You just want to retreat by watching TV or listening to music a LOT to take you from your inner pain but your attention span is so minimized you may wind up on the couch looking up at the ceiling and constantly changing TV channels with the remote. Certain scenes or sounds may bring up painful emotions and make you cry. So you try to quench the pain by smoking, drinking or doing dope.

2. a song from the 1979 Pink Floyd classic double album "The Wall" where the alienated and overburdened rock musician Pink (no, not the real life female pop singer!) is found " comfortably numb" watching the tube and is given "a little pin prick" of horse to "get going for the show". The lyrics (written by bassist Roger Waters) describe in great detail this condition of mental/emotional illness. Dave Gilmour gives a fierce guitar workout and Nick Mason slams an electric drum as the tune fades out. Richard Wright's synthesizers are augmented by an orchestra.
1. Daniel is dog tired after working 12-hour shifts all during the week, and rotating shift schedules every week on top of that. He just sits on his couch and polishes off the Riunite and tokes while watching 13 channels of shit on the TV to choose from. In the meantime he has scenes from his life flashing back in his head. He has become comfortably numb.

2. "Comfortably Numb" is a major highlight of a Pink Floyd concert.

Get the Comfortably Numb mug.
One of the best songs, ever written. Great guitar riffs. I think its about taking drugs to get through all thier shows.

Some Emo/Screamo Prick: "Wow, Im crying because the Used and Taking Back Sunday are so good."

Me: "Go cry in a dark corner. Comfortably Numb is a real song, with real lyrics, which earned its popularity instead just being a trend."

The best song by Pink Floyd, if you are on any drug especially ecstasy, this songs speaks to you and means so much. It is such a beautiful song, filled with so many meanings, but if you listen to it while high, you can feel the music crawl up your arm and around your shoulders and become one with you, techno does this too, but Confortably Numb does more than take you over, it is you.
Kid on Drugs: Listen to Comfortably Numb, if you want to be controlled by music.

What happens when you go into a spiratual or sexual moment, and the fealing after. It feels like you are floating, and nothing is hot or cold. You forget what is going on, and nothing madders (like being high)
I became Comfortably Numb after my girlfriend left after we made out for 3 hours.

Where one sits on their hand until it goes numb, then pleasures themself in an aid to fool the mind that its not them.
Can also be used with nail polish for the visual effect
I returned home last night on my own, unsuccessful in getting laid, so went comfortably numb in a bid to relieve myself.
