K:C W:1 W:Hello darkness, my old friend W:I've come to talk with you again W:Because a vision softly creeping W:Left its seeds while I was sleeping W:And the vision that was planted in my brain W:Still remains W:Within the sound of silence W: W:2 W:In restless dreams I walked alone W:Narrow streets of cobblestone W:'Neath the halo of a street lamp W:I turned my collar to the cold and damp W:When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light W:That split the night W:And touched the sound of silence W: W:3 W:And in the naked light, I saw W:Ten thousand people, maybe more W:People talking without speaking W:People hearing without listening W:People writing songs that voices never share W:And no one dared W:Disturb the sound of silence W: W:4 W:"Fools", said I, "You do not know W:Silence like a cancer grows W:Hear my words that I might teach you W:Take my arms that I might reach you" W:But my words, like silent raindrops fell W:And echoed W:In the wells of silence W: W:5 W:And the people bowed and prayed W:To the neon god they made W:And the sign flashed out its warning W:In the words that it was forming W:And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls W:And tenement halls" W:And whispered in the sound of silence % % % % % % % %]
