The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel

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 (1)____________ alone

Beneath the halo of a street lamp
I (2)____________ my collar to the (3)________ 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 (4)__________ I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People (5)______________ without listening
People writing songs that voices (6)__________ share...
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence.

Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my (7)________ that I might reach you.
But my words like (8)____________ raindrops fell,
And echoed in the wells of silence.

And the people bowed and prayed
To the (9)________ god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming.
And the signs (10)__________ The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls,
And whisper'd in the sound of silence.
