With all the attention Disturbed is getting with their cover, here’s a bit of a heavier interpretation from 2000 …

Artist: Nevermore
Album: Deat Heart, In a Dead World
Year: 2000

Lyrics:
Hello darkness, my old friend,
I’ve come to talk with you again.
Because a vision softly creeping,
left its seed while I was sleeping.
And the vision that was planted in my brain still remains,
within the sound of silence,
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,
the sound of silence.
And the people bowed and prayed
to the neon god they made.
Fools! said I, You do not know,
silence like a cancer grows.
And in the naked light I saw,
ten thousand people maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
people hearing without listening.
System check
Neon Black
And the sign flashed out its warning,
in the words that it was forming.
The words of the prophets were written on the subway walls,
and tenement halls,
(and whisper)
in the sound of silence,
the sounds of silence,
the sounds of silence,
the sound.
‘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.
