The Sound of Silence

July 28, 2009

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 signs said, the words of the prophets
are written on the subway walls
and tenement halls.
And whisperd in the sounds of silence.

-Simon & Garfunkel

Zendo is not only a dear friend of mine, but truly an amazing soul- with a talent not of this world.
Be sure to listen to one of my favorites; “Splendor”. With a voice to rattle your bones, and lyrics that is sure to melt your heart, you would love
Zendo‘s music just as much as I do.
