The Sound Of Silence

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 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, maybe 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 to 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
And the words that it was forming

And the sign said
"The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"
And whispered in the sound of silence

O Som do Silêncio

Olá escuridão, minha velha amiga
Vim conversar com você de novo
Porque uma visão um pouco arrepiante
Deixou sementes enquanto eu dormia
E a visão que foi plantada em meu cérebro
Ainda permanece dentro do som do silêncio

Em sonhos agitados eu caminhei só
Em ruas estreitas de paralelepípedos
Sob a luz das lampadas da rua
Levantei minha lapela para me proteger do frio e umidade

Quando meus olhos foram apunhalados
Pelo brilho de uma luz de néon
Que rachou a noite
E tocou o som do silêncio

E na luz nua eu vi
Dez mil pessoas, talvez mais
Pessoas conversando sem falar
Pessoas ouvindo sem escutar

Pessoas escrevendo canções
Que vozes jamais compartilharam
E ninguém ousava
Perturbar o som do silêncio

"Tolos" eu disse, "vocês não sabem
Silêncio é como um câncer que cresce
Ouçam as palavras que eu possa lhes ensinar
Tomem os braços que eu possa lhes estender"
Mas minhas palavras caíam como gotas silenciosas de chuva
E ecoavam no poço do silêncio

E as pessoas curvavam-se e rezavam
Ao Deus de néon que elas criaram
E a placa faiscou o seu aviso
Nas palavras que formava

E a placa dizia,
"As palavras dos profetas
Estão escritas nas paredes do metrô
E nos corredores das casas"
E sussurravam no som do silêncio
