  • 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.

  • '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 whisper'd in the sounds of silence.

Hello darkness, my old friend
