The Sound of Silence - Disturbed Lyrics

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 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
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

    My 54 year old daughter warned me that I would love Sound of Silence, but that I might not like Disturbed's other music. She is a genious, but not this time. I love this group, and will begin buying their albums right now. That silly girl!

    They brought back the song to epic proportion to where you feel every note from your head down to your toes and then some.
  • Amazing!

    As a 65-year-old woman who grew up in the 60s, I was a huge fan of Simon & Garfinkle's music. When I heard Disturbed's version of Sounds of Silence I was completely blown away! This is the best remake of any song, ever!
  • Perhaps the best cover song ever of all time!!!

    David Draiman's voice on this song is like what you'd imagine ZEUS would sing like if they had a mic and band up in Mount Olympus. His vocals on this Simon & Garfunkle classic is like liquid gold and each word of the lyrics creates goosebumps and sends shivers up and down my spine. This is a must buy for your collection!!!
  • Wow, haunting.

    Performed so powerfully, it will give you chills! A Simon and Garfunkel remake that Simon and Garfunkel will love. They played for a long time to a certain class of fans, but this remake is expanding their music genre, as well as their fan base to a whole new level. Powerful, timeless and classy. Nice job Disturbed! Can’t wait to see another remake!
  • Amazing!
