    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 dare
    Disturb the sound of silence

    "Fools" said I, "you do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach to you"
    But my words like silent raindrops 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
    And 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 whispered in the sound of silence
