SOUND OF SILENCE

 

Hello darkness my old friend

I’ve come to talk with you again

Because a vision softly creeping,

Left it’s 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 cobblestome

Near 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

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

None dare, disturb the sound of silence.

Fools”, said I, “you do not know”.

Silence like a cancer grows,

Hear my words that I might reach you,

But my words, like silent randrops fell

And echoed the will of silence.

And the people bowed and prayed

To the neon god they made

And the sign flashed out its warming

In the words that it was forming,

And the sign said: “The words of the prophets

Are written on the subway walls, and tenement halls

And whisper the sound of silence”.

Simon and Garfunkel
