"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
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

沉默之聲
哈囉暗夜,我的老友
又來找你聊聊
因為有個景象輕輕爬過
趁我睡著時 留下了種籽
而這個種在我腦海裡的景象
還留存著在沈默之聲裏
在無數個輾轉難寐的夢中我獨行
於狹窄街道上的圓石路上
籠罩於街燈下暈圈的我
我拉起衣領以抵禦夜的溼和冷
我的眼睛受到閃亮的霓虹燈光所刺眼
燈光劃破夜空
也觸動了沈默之聲
在裸露的燈光中
我看見上萬的人們,或許還更多
人們交談著卻沒有說話
人們聽到聲音卻
沒有傾聽他們寫著一些沒有分享聲音出去的歌曲
而也沒有人膽敢去驚擾沈默之聲
我說:「愚蠢啊,你們不知道
沈默會像癌細胞那樣蔓延
要聽我的話才能教你
抓我的手臂我才能搆得著你」
但是我的話語就像無聲落下的雨滴
迴響於沈默的井裏
對著自己所造的霓虹神像
人們卻彎下身來禱告
然而警訊已經閃現出
在正成形的話語裏
訊號寫著:
「先知的話語是寫在地下鐵的牆上
以及出租公寓的大廳裏」
也呢喃於各種沈默之聲裡
