Nevermore – The Sound Of Silence lyrics

Hello darkness, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,

Left it's seeds while I was sleeping!
And the vision
That was planted in my brain
The sound of silence...
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,

I turned my collar to the cold and damp!
'Neath the halo of a street lamp,

When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
And touched the sound of silence.
It split the night...
The sound of silence...

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
Fools. said I, You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows.

Ten thousand people, maybe more.
And in the naked light I saw
People hearing without listening (listening)!
People talking without speaking,

System check!
Neon black!

In the words that it was forming.
The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And the sign flashed out it's warning,
And tenement halls.
And whispered...
In the sound of silence.
The sounds of silence...
The sounds of silence!

The sounds...
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

    This song is in reference to the Torah(Yahweh's instructions in righteousness) which He wrote in our hearts and minds after writing them on the stone tablets which Mosheh (Moses) broke when coming down the mount only to find the Israelites bowing to golden calves

    Yahweh is not happy with us. He gave us very simple instructions. Our obedience is our love to Him. We say we love Him, but most are following man made religions, obeying Constantine's religion and not Yahweh's instructions. Constantine killed anyone following His law, he silenced the world.

    People refuse to leave their Pagan christianity and holidays choosing them over Yahweh/ and His set apart times. Everything happening was prophesied by the Prophets. The Pope himself is defying the Word of Yahweh! The Antichrist is here and you people need to wake up. Read a Hebrew based bible starting with Genesis and start living right!

    Listen or don't but if I were you I would come out of Babel and get back to truth in Scripture!



    Hello darkness, my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again,
    Because a vision softly creeping,

    Left it's seeds while I was sleeping!
    And the vision
    That was planted in my brain
    The sound of Silence
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence.
    In restless dreams I walked alone
    Narrow streets of cobblestone,

    I turned my collar to the cold and damp!
    'Neath the halo of a street lamp,

    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
    And touched the sound of silence.
    It split the night...
    The sound of silence...

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made.
    Fools. said I, You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows.

    Ten thousand people, maybe more.
    And in the naked light I saw

    The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
    And the sign flashed out it's warning,
    And tenement halls.

    In the sound of silence.
    The sounds of silence...
    The sounds of silence!

    The sounds...
    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
