Their words spoke to me. Still do.

Hello Darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again ....

In restless dreams I walked alone
narrow streets of cobblestone ...

People talking without speaking
people hearing without listening
people writing songs that voices never share ...

Silence, like a cancer, grows

My words like silent raindrops fell
and echoed in the wells
of silence.

-- Simon & Garfunkle, in "Sound of Silence"

All my words come back to me
in shades of mediocrity
like emptiness
in harmony ....

-- Simon & Garfunkle, in "Homeword Bound"
