Music Monday: ‘The Sound of Silence’ by Disturbed

March 22, 2016

img_3152.jpgRobby found this beautiful song, ‘The Sound of Silence’ by Disturbed, and it just makes me want to cry. I’ve heard it before from other singers, listed here, but never before has it sounded so powerful to me than this version. It was originally done by Simon and Garfunkel, “Garfunkel once summed up the song’s meaning as “the inability of people to communicate with each other, not particularly internationally but especially emotionally, so what you see around you are people unable to love each other.”

Have a listen and let me know what you think…The lyrics are also before if you want to see what exactly they’re saying. I think even though the song is very vague, you can somehow apply it to something in your own life. What do you think?

LYRICS (Copyright of :

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 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 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
