The Sound of Silence沈默之聲

Sound of Silence

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 dared
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,
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'd in the sounds of silence.

沈默之聲

暗夜,我的老友
我又來找你聊聊了
因為有個異象輕輕爬過
趁我睡著時偷偷留下了種籽
而這個種在我腦海裡的異象
到現在還留存著
在沈默之聲裡
無數輾轉的夢中我獨行
在狹窄街道的圓石路上
街燈渲出的光暈將我籠罩
夜的溼冷讓我豎起衣領
無比刺眼的是閃亮的霓虹燈光
劃破夜空
也觸動了沈默之聲
在裸燈清晰的照亮中我看見
上萬的人們,或許還不止
他們交談著卻沒有真正說話
他們聽到聲音卻沒有真正傾聽
他們寫著一些沒有傳達任何心聲的歌曲
而也沒有人敢去
驚擾沈默之聲
我說:「愚蠢的人啊,你們不知道
沈默會像癌細胞那樣生長蔓延
聽我的話我才能教你
拉我的手我才能救你」
但是我的話語就像無聲落下的雨滴
迴響在
沈默的深井裡
對著自己手造的霓虹神像
人們虔誠地跪拜禱告
然而警訊已經閃現
在慢慢成形的話語裡
警訊寫著:「先知的話語是寫在地鐵的牆上
以及出租公寓的大廳裡」
也輕聲細語在各種沈默之聲裡
