The Sound of Silence
by Simon & Garfunkel

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
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
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
And whispered in the sounds of silence"

When you google "Who sings the sound of silence", Disturbed is what pops up, not S&G. That's a crime in my book.

Jodi Rosell

I know it's Simon and Garfunkel! Yeah!😊

@Bat Doot With respect to S&G, I vastly prefer the Disturbed one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9Dg-g7t2l4 if anyone is curious.

Michael Dressner 100%! This song speaks for an entire generation! They know who they are! There’s also an additional connection to your very soul if you lived in NY at that time. They lived here & spoke to us more IMHO!
