Hello darkness, my old friend
Because a vision softly creeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence
In restless dreams I walked alone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
And touched the sound of silence
And in the naked light I saw
People talking without speaking
People writing songs that voices never share
Disturb the sound of silence
"Fools" said I
Hear my words that I might teach you
But my words like silent raindrops fell
In the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
And the sign flashed out its warning
And the signs said
And tenement halls
