Sound of Silence


入伍前 聽這首歌 徹底未眠

Hello, darkness my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left it’s seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains within the sound of silence

In restless dream
I walked alone the narrow street of cobble stone
Beneath 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 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 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
In the words that it was forming, and the signs said
“The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls and tenement halls
And whispered in the sound of silence”
