Sound Of Silence (寂静之声) (Live in Bokrijk) - Dana Winner

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 streetlamp


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


No one dare


Disturb the sound of silence


Fools said I you do not know


Silence like a cancer grow


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 subway walls


And tenement halls


And whispered in the sounds of silence
