With in the sound of silence
And resteless dreams I walked away
Now the streets are coming strong
We fought halo at the eastern street vale
I turned my car into the coldest train
When my eyes where stayed by the flash of an ion light
Split the night
And thuched 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.
