Il silenzio

shhh

A volte è difficile rimanere nascosto.
A volte è difficile non far niente e far finta di niente.
A volte la cosa più difficile da fare è rimanere in silenzio…
perché, se elimini il silenzio, ti restano solo le parole.

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
still remains, within the sounds of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone,
narrow streets of cobblestone
‘neath the halo of a streetlamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
when my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
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
noone dare, 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 the will 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 sign said, “The words of the prophets
are written on the subway walls, and tenement halls
and whisper the sounds of silence.

Simon & Garfunkel – “The Sound of Silence”
