about

This is one of my all time favorite songs from my childhood. It was so fun to hang out and record with David at Santa Cruz studios on a sunny spring day in San Pedro.

lyrics

Hello darkness my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left it's 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 neon lights that split the nights 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 dares
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
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
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
