Santosh Shail sings......The Sound Of Silence

Filed under: by: स्वप्न मञ्जूषा




The 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 turn 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 shared
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 whispered in the sound of silence

FORGIVE ME FOR TRYING TO TRANSLATE THE OPENING LINES OF THE SONG:
शांति के स्वर
==========
नमस्कार! हे अंधकार ! ऐ मेरे मित्र पुराने
फिर आया हूँ पास तुम्हारे, तुमसे ही बतियाने.
थी एक नज़र चोरी चुपके, गई बीज रोप मैं सोई सखे!
मेरे मानस में रोपित वह, है बीज सुरक्षित आज अहे!
है बीज सुरक्षित आज, देख शांति के स्वर के सिरहाने.
फिर आया हूँ पास तुम्हारे, तुमसे ही बतियाने.
