    "The Sound Of Silence" Lyrics

    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.
    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
    It split the night...
    And touched the sound of silence.
    The sound of silence...

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made.
    Fools. said I, You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows.

    And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more.
    People talking without speaking,
    People hearing without listening (listening)!

    System check!
    Neon black!

    And the sign flashed out its warning,
    In the words that it was forming.
    The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls.
    And whispered...
    In the sound of silence.
    The sounds of silence...
    The sounds of silence!
    The sounds...

    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 you.
