Em sonhos sem descanso eu caminhei sóEm ruas estreitas de paralelepípedosSob a luz de uma lâmpada de ruaLevantei minha lapela para me proteger do frio e umidade
Contrary to the original version, David Draiman sings it almost an octave lower, in the key of F#m. The chord progression is F#m, E, D, A. His vocal span goes from E2 to A4 in scientific pitch notation.

Despite the record’s success in the States, Simon was reluctant to leave the U.K. “He was in love with Kathy and England and his life as a free young Yankee,” Garfunkel continued. “And he hated to have to relate to a hit record in America. Even though it was the thing we had long wanted, it came at an unfortunate time. It was the winter of ’65. And he only knew that it was happening when it broke the Top 10.
When my eyes were stabbedBy the flash of a neon lightThat split the nightAnd touched the sound of silence
E a placa diziam:As palavras dos profetasEstão escritas nas paredes do metrôE nos corredores dos cortiçosE sussurradas no som do silêncio
After various releases in VHS format, the film was released on DVD in the UK in 2001, in the US in 2003 (only available as part of a four-disc box set of Bergman's "Faith Trilogy"), in Sweden in 2004 and in Germany in 2005. While all versions contain the film in original Swedish language (with subtitles in the language of the releasing country), the US and German versions also contain a dubbed audio track in English and German, respectively.
A kind but pampered beautiful young virgin and her family's pregnant and jealous servant set out to deliver candles to church, but only one returns from events that transpire in the woods along the way.
We were in L.A. Our manager called us at the hotel we were staying at. We were both in the same room. We must have bunked in the same room in those days. I picked up the phone. He said, 'Well, congratulations. Next week you will go from five to one in Billboard.' It was fun. I remember pulling open the curtains and letting the brilliant sun come into this very red room, and then ordering room service. That was good."
Ingmar Bergman's psychological study of how humans react in a situation of war. The film takes place on Gotland, where invasion forces arrive.
Two emotionally estranged sisters, Ester (Ingrid Thulin) and Anna (Gunnel Lindblom), and Anna's son, Johan (Jörgen Lindström), a boy of 10, are on a night train journey back home. Ester, the older sister and a literary translator, is seriously ill. Anna coldly assists her, seemingly resenting the burden. They decide to interrupt the journey in the next town called "Timoka", located in a fictitious Central European country with an incomprehensible language and on the brink of war.
In the wake of the song's success, Simon promptly returned to the United States to record a new Simon & Garfunkel album at Columbia's request. He later described his experiences learning the song went to No. 1, a story he repeated in numerous interviews:
It's late nineteenth century Sweden. Middle aged lawyer Fredrik Egerman and his nineteen year old current wife Anne Egerman's two-year marriage has not yet been consummated. Fredrik wants ... See full summary »
Anna meets the man in their hotel, and Johan witnesses them kissing and entering a room down an adjacent hall. Upon returning to the room, he asks Ester, why his mother dislikes being with them, as she always departs as soon as she gets the chance. Ester tells him that she has learned a few words of the local language, and she promises to write them down for him. Johan, instinctively knowing Ester is seriously ill, embraces her in a show of concern and compassion.
When a woman dying of cancer in early twentieth-century Sweden is visited by her two sisters, long-repressed feelings between the siblings rise to the surface.
They would accomplish that goal. In January 1966 the duo released their second album, Sounds of Silence. The LP also included their next hit, “I Am a Rock,” which was recorded the same afternoon (as was “Homeward Bound,” which ended up on their third album, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme).
Tolos, eu disse, vocês não sabemQue o silêncio é como um câncer que cresceMe escute que eu posso ensinar vocêPegue o meu braço que eu posso te alcançarMas minhas palavras caíam como gotas silenciosas de chuvaE ecoavam nos poços do silêncio
Fools, said I, you do not knowSilence like a cancer growsHear my words that I might teach youTake my arms that I might reach to youBut my words like silent raindrops fellAnd echoed in the wells of silence
On March 21, 2013, the song was added to the National Recording Registry in the Library of Congress for long-term preservation along with the rest of the Sounds of Silence album.
E as pessoas se curvavam e rezavamAo Deus de neon que elas criaramE a placa mostrou o seu avisoNas palavras que formava

In a scene, Johan stares out of the window as a lone tank rolls down the street at night; in Against Interpretation, Susan Sontag comments, "Again, Ingmar Bergman may have meant the tank rumbling down the street in The Silence as a phallic symbol. But if he did, it was a foolish thought." She then continues to say, "Those who reach for a Freudian interpretation of the tank are only expressing their lack of response to what is there on the screen."
For his part, Garfunkel had a different memory of the song's success:
In the Rush song "The Spirit of Radio", the final lines are a satirical homage to the final lines of "The Sound of Silence": "For the words of the profits were written on the studio wall". In the liner notes, the lyrics spell the word 'profits' and not 'prophets'. This ironic twist is consistent with the song's theme of criticizing how money has damaged the integrity of the music industry, particularly in radio.
"The Silence" is about the emotional distance between two sisters. The younger one is still attractive enough to pick up a lover in a strange city. The older one -- even though she is very ill -- would like to make a human connection also but cannot leave the hotel room. Traveling with the sisters is a small boy who escapes into the hotel, meets a troupe of dwarfs. Which sister is this little boy's mother? Written by Dale O'Connor <firstname.lastname@example.org>

The song was further popularized by the "Sad Affleck" internet meme, which depicts Ben Affleck's reaction towards the negative reviews of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
"The Sound of Silence", originally "The Sounds of Silence", is a song by the American music duo Simon & Garfunkel. The song was written by Paul Simon over a period of several months in 1963 and 1964.

The Silence (Swedish: Tystnaden) is a 1963 Swedish film written and directed by Ingmar Bergman and starring Ingrid Thulin and Gunnel Lindblom. The plot focuses on two sisters – the younger a sensuous woman with a young son, the elder more intellectually oriented and seriously ill — and their tense relationship as they travel toward home through a fictional Central European country on the brink of war.
"The Sound of Silence" first broke in Boston, where it became one of the top-selling singles in early November 1965; it spread to Miami and Washington, D.C. two weeks later, reaching number one in Boston and debuting on the Billboard Hot 100.
A married daughter who longs for her mother's love gets visited by the latter, a successful concert pianist.
Today, their acclaim is universal, but in 1964 Simon & Garfunkel’s debut LP, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M., flopped. Subtitled “Exciting new sounds in the folk tradition,” the acoustic album sold about only 2,000 copies. A mix of Paul Simon originals, folk covers and traditional tunes, its highlight was a Simon composition recorded on March 10, 1964, “The Sounds of Silence.”
