Bring Disturbed Disturbed To Life!
“The Sound of Silence” is a song by Simon & Garfunkel, an American music duo. Paul Simon wrote the song over many months in 1963 and 1964, and the final ‘acoustic’ version was recorded at Columbia Studios in March 1964. Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M., their debut album, included the song. The album was a commercial failure, leading the couple to disband, with Simon returning to England and Art Garfunkel returning to his studies at Columbia University. However later in 1966, a remixed version of the song hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the band reunited after that.
Disturbed - The Sound Of Silence .
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
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
