The Words of the Prophets

…are written on the subway walls, and tenement halls…and whispered in the sound of Silence.

A cautionary tale of today’s Society. Please, please let’s do something to leave this world a better place than how we found it. 

Be The Change! Wake Up before it’s too late!

Disturbed’s version of the Simon & Garfunkel favourite “The Sound Of Silence” is by far the most powerfully moving I’ve come across. If this doesn’t stir you into action, then you’re as good as dead on the inside.

Here are the Lyrics to the song, so you can follow along if you wish:

“The Sound Of Silence”
(originally by Simon & Garfunkel)

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

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp

When my eyes were stabbed
By the flash of a neon light
That 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
And no one 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 in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
And 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 whispered in the sound of silence
