  1. simon and garfunkel'in en bilinen sarkisi. bir cok durumun arka fonu olabilecek sarkidir.

    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 dared
    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
    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.
