Sound of Silence

by Simon And Garfunkel, sung by Gregorians: Masters of Chant.







As I walked
a crowded street
I listened to the
hearts and souls
of those I passed
and heard
their screams
smothered
in silence.

Knowing it was
the very same silence
stifling the lone
self within, trying
to claw its way
out of my own
dark silence.

I wondered
why,
I said
nothing.
