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 deared
Disturb the sound 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 signs said, the words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls.
And whisperd in the sounds of silence.
This was the main soundtrack of the movie The Graduate, do you remember it? remember Benjamin Braddock (played by Dustin Hoffman in the film), the recent college graduate who was seduced by Mrs. Robinson and then falls in love with her daughter Elaine.
And this leads us to “Rumour has it”where Sarah Huttinger( Jennifer Aniston) discovers that this novel and movie was actually based on her family’s story, that her grandmother was Mrs. Robinson and that her mother was the daughter. And surprisingly she is seduced by the same man who was seduced by her grandmother, who loved her mother and who is suspected to be her real father !!!! eih ta3ab el a3ssab dah !!!
Anyway, I like the song, even though it has this creepy atmosphere that I am not fond of.
