The Sound of Silence Full lyrics online http://www.paul-simon.info/HTML/U-SOS.html
Song lyrics, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. (1964)
Kontext: 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.
