The Sound of Silent

Simon And Garfunke

Hello Darkness
My old friends
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 colour to the cold  and damp
When my eyes were stabbed
By the faslh 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 known
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that might I teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you
But my words
Like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neo god they make
And the sign flashed its warning
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 the whispered in the sounds of silence
