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

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.
