NOTE BY NANCY: I had not realized how significant Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” is for the present day until I saw it posted on Facebook today.

I, and many others attempting to wake up Earth humans to what is truly happening on our planet, so often feel that all we hear is the sound of silence.


The signs are everywhere that the OLD is crumbling & the NEW is emerging!! Are you willing to join in breaking the sound of silence and speak the words of LOVE to all people?

I hope you will read the lyrics and then, listen to this important musical message!


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 streetlamp
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
No one dare
Disturb the sound of silence

“Fools” said I, “You do not know
Silence like a cancer grow
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 subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence”
