- Hello darkness, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping, Left its seeds while I was
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
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, And no one dared,
Disturb the sound of silence.
