Before listening to the song, try to guess the missing words after reading their definitions at the bottom of the page


Hello darkness, my old friend,
I’ve come to talk with you again.
Because a vision __________  creeping
left its seeds while I was sleeping.
And the vision that was __________  in my brain
still remains within the sounds of silence.

In __________  dreams I walked alone
narrow streets of cobblestone,
´neath the __________  of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
when my eyes were stabbed
by the flash of the __________  light, that split the night
and touch the sounds 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 sounds 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 __________  fell,
and echoed in the wells of silence.

And the people __________  and prayed
to the __________  god they made.
And the sign flashed out its __________
in the words that it was forming.
And the signs said the words of the prophets
are written on the __________  walls and tenement  halls.
And whispered in the sounds of silence.
