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 (1)__________ of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
Beneath 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 (2)__________ the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking (3)______________ speaking
People hearing (4)______________ listening
People writing (5)__________ that voices never share...
And no one dare
Disturb the (6)__________ of silence.

Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach you.
But my (7)__________ like silent raindrops fell,
And (8)____________ 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 (10)________ it was forming.
And the signs said: The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls,
And whisper'd in the sound of silence.
