THE SOUND OF SILENCE ( C )
Simon And Garfunkel
C

....
.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 with in the sound
of silence.
In restless dream I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobble stone.
Neath the haro of a street lamp.
I turned my collar to the cold
and damp
When my eyes were stabbed
by the flash
of the neon light
that split the night
And touched the sound
of silence
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people may be 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 you
But my words
like silence raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells
of silence
And the people bowed and prayer
To the neon got they made
And the sign flashed
Out it's warning
In the words that it was forming
And the signs said
"The words of the prophets
Are written on the sub-way walls
and tenement hall"
And whisper'd in the sound
of silence
