LYRIC

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 it's 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

Disturbed - The Sound Of Silence (originally by Simon & Garfunkel) - lyrics
