Hello darkness, my old friend, I've come to talk with you again, Because avision softly creeping, Left its seeds while I was sleeping, And thevision that was planted in my brain Still remains Within the sound ofsilence.
In restless dreams I walked alone Narrow streets ofcobblestone, 'Neath the halo of a street lamp, I turned my collar to thecold and damp When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neonlight That split the night And touched the sound of silence.
And inthe naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more. People talkingwithout speaking, People hearing without listening, People writing songsthat voices never share And no one dared Disturb the sound ofsilence.
"Fools" said I,"You do not know Silence like a cancergrows. Hear my words that I might teach you, Take my arms that I mightreach you." But my words like silent raindrops fell, And echoed In thewells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed To the neon god theymade. And the sign flashed out its warning, In the words that it wasforming. And the signs said, The words of the prophets are written on thesubway walls And tenement halls. And whisper'd in the sounds ofsilence.
