{Verse No. 1}
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 the first verse, the narrator addresses "darkness" as an old friend, metaphorically representing a state of emotional or spiritual emptiness. The vision mentioned in the lyrics symbolizes a deep realization or insight that came to the narrator during a moment of vulnerability, possibly in a dreamlike state. This vision planted a thought or idea in the narrator's mind, which continues to linger and shape their perception of the world.


{Verse No. 2}
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


The second verse vividly describes the narrator's solitary journey through narrow, desolate streets. The reference to the "halo of a street lamp" highlights a feeble source of light in the darkness, suggesting a glimmer of hope or understanding amidst the isolation. However, even in this moment of illumination, the intrusion of a neon light serves as a harsh reminder of the artificial and jarring aspects of the modern world. The mention of eyes being "stabbed" emphasizes the discomfort and alienation caused by the sudden intrusion, emphasizing the impact of contemporary distractions on genuine human connection.


THE COMPLETE LYRICS
{Verse No. 1}
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

{Verse No. 2}
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
{Verse No. 3}
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 shared
And no one dared disturb the sound of silence

{Verse No. 4}
"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

[Verse 5]
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 sound of silence
