Atrocity - Sound of Silence Songtext

(P. Simon/A. 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 streetlamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes where 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
Tenthousand people maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never shared
And 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 signs said: "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls..."
And whispered...
In the sounds of silence
