The Sound of Silence by Paul Simon (Live Version by Disturbed)

  1. The Sound of Silence by Paul Simon

    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
    No one dared
    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 silent raindrops fell;
    Echoed in the wells of silence

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made
    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,
    Whispered in the sound of silence.
