Hello darkness my old friend,

I've come to talk with you again,

Cause these voices in my head are screaming,

And haunt me when I'm dreaming.


The visions they are planting,

Are clips of what they're planting,

And their plan is as bright,

As a dark silent night.


And in my dreams I am alone,

Standing on streets made of bone,

With no one by my side,

I think why even try?


And in the darkness I saw,

Wandering souls and nothing more,

People talking without speaking,

To people who hear without listening.


So I am trapped in here,

To conquer my fears,

And to stand and fight,

The beasts of this silent night.


Inspired by the song "Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel.
