Simon and Garfunkel Sound of Silence

 

Hello darkness, my old friend

I’ve come to talk with you again

 

Because a vision softly creeping

Left its seeds while I was sleeping

And the vision that was planted in my brain

Still remains

Within the sound of silence

 

In restless dreams I walked alone

Narrow streets of cobblestone

Neath the halo of a street lamp

I turned my collar to the cold and damp

 

When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light

That split the night

And touched the sound of silence

 

And in the naked light I saw

Ten thousand people, maybe more

People talking without speaking

People hearing without listening

People writing songs that voices never share

And no one dared

Disturb the sound of silence

 

Fools said I you do not know

silence like a cancel grows

Hear my words that I might teach you

Take my arms that I might reach you

But my words like silent rain drops fell

and echoed in the wells of silence

 

And the people bowed and prayed

to the neon god they made

and the sign flashed out its warning

in the words that it was forming

And the signs said the words of the prophets are

written on the subway walls

and tenement halls

and whispered in the sound of silence
