The Sound of Silence Lyrics

The Sound Of Silence (寂静之声) - Disturbed

Written by:Paul Simon

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 dared


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 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 its warning


In 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 sounds of silence


***Lyrics are from third-parties***

Been a Disturbed and David Draiman fan since 'Down with the Sickness' back in the early 2000s, and only David can reach these notes. Paul Simon was involved with the creation of this version, but to say it is better than the original is completely unfair. It's an adaptation for the world's current musical taste, exactly the same as Bad Wolves' version of The Cranberries' hit Zombie. Every song carries it's own magic, and reboots simply cannot be compared.

Way better


reading ur sentence gave me a heart attack

This song is on loud in my car almost always but gives me goosebumps each time.


It's not an emo song.

So fitting that last night it was the last of Tumishang and the last night i must get the Covid vaccine so i disturbed. Yesterday i was cleaning because you must clean everyday where you are to stay healthy. The Festive celebrates the power of light in times of darkness and the vaccine symbolizes the light of human determination and endeavor in the face of the darkness of this pandemic! A healthy new year to all! Go get vaccinated! Finish 2020 strong.


I can't explain it. I don't know what to do. Dang you Disturbed me!
