The Sound of Silence (寂靜之聲) - DJ In the Night

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 walk along

Narrow streets of cobble stone

'Neath the halo of a street lamp

I turned my collar to the cold damp

When my eyes were stabbled 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

"fool" 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 rain-drops 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

In the words that it was forming

And the sign said "the words of the prophets

Are written on the subway walls tenement halls"

And whispered in the sounds of silence
