   F#m    E     A     F#m     E

     And in the naked light I saw
                               F#m
     Ten thousand people, maybe more
                       D       A
     People talking without speaking
                       D        A
     People hearing without listening


                    D
     People writing songs
                       A
     That voices never share
                      F#m
     And no one dared
                 E 
     Disturb the sound of silence

   F#m                          E
     "Fools" said I, "you do not know
                          F#m
      Silence like a cancer grows
                           D          A
     Hear my words that I might teach you
                         D              A
     Take my arms that I might reach to you"
           D                            A
     But my words like silent raindrops fell
   F#m                 E
     And echoed in the wells of silence

    F#m                      E
     And the people bowed and prayed
                    F#m
     To the neon God they made
                              D    A
     And the sign flashed out its warning
                          D    A
     In the words that it was forming

     

     And the sign said
          D
     "The words of the prophets
                               A
     Are written on the subway walls
                        F#m    
     And tenement halls"
         E
     And whispered in the sound of silence
