The Sound of Silence – Simon and Garfunkel

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
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 dare
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 to 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 it’s warning
And 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 sound of silence

  1. A musica aborda a questão da falta de comunicação entre as pessoas (conversam sem falar, ouvem sem escutar), “10 mil pessoas talvez mais”, quer dizer que todo mundo faz as mesmas coisas, seguem um padrão pre estabelecido de viver. a musica quer falar sobre o quanto é ruim o silencio, é como“ um câncer que espalha cresce”,
    Gostei da musica, bem interessante
