    [Heir Apparent arrangement by Terry Gorle 1987]

    Hello darkness my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because a vision softly creeping
    Left it's seeds while I was sleeping
    And a 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
    -And 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 it's 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 sounds of silence

    7. The Haunting

    Memory- go away
    I grow weary from my running
    Hiding for so long
    I've lost my way

    Morning light's reminders
    Painting colors in my prison
    Daylight brightens every shade of grey
    The pain never ending, and now it's so cliche

    Yesterdays are creaking doors
    And noises in the nighttime
    Feelings, only chains across the floor
    Voices on the wind, softly moan
    I hear them whisper
    Mirrors mock the man I was before

    My mind slowly fading
    Like paper in the rain

    The haunting, it still remains
    The haunting, it still remains

    Turning and burning in my bed
    A never-ending ghost
    That lives inside my head

    Memory- go away
    I grow weary from my running
    Hiding for so long
    I've lost my way

    Yesterdays are creaking doors
    And noises in the nighttime
    Feelings, only chains across the floor
    My mind keeps decaying
    Like paper in the rain

    The haunting, it still remains
    The haunting, it still remains

    Turning and burning in my bed
    A never-ending ghost
    That lives inside my head

    Memories remain of the haunting
    Can't stop the pain of the haunting:
