Comfortably Numb is a song on Pink Floyd's The Wall album. Many in "Artistic Circles" would have you believe that this song is about someone's mental struggle due to the apathy brought on by riding the white horse.
That's not true.
This song is about the woes of living in a society where everyone is equal and therefore has no need to go the extra mile for things like cars, or houses or obese bank accounts. A place where people stand in line waiting for single-ply toilet paper and day old bread.
If anything, this song is a call to revolution for those down-trodden souls living in the grips of industrial communist tyranny. Power to the purveyor!
