Disturbed Song Lyrics

Disturbed – The Sound Of Silence

Disturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, formed in 1994.

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the 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 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

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 shared
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 its 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 sound of silence”

Disturbed Song Lyrics

Disturbed – The Vengeful One

Disturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, formed in 1994.

As I survey the chaos, taking in the lack of raw humanity
It’s as if the entire world’s fallen in love with their insanity
Hear the innocent voices scream
As their tormentors laugh through all of it
No forgiveness for all I’ve seen
A degradation I cannot forget

So sleep soundly in your beds tonight
For judgement falls upon you at first light

I’m the hand of God
I’m the dark messiah
I’m the vengeful one
(Look inside and see what you’re becoming)
In the blackest moments of a dying world
What have you become
(Look inside and see what you’re becoming)

As the violence surges
And the teeming masses have been terrorized
Their human predators… all gone mad
Are reaping profits born from their demise
The rabid media plays their role
Stoking the flames of war to no surprise
Only too eager to sell their souls
For the apocalypse must be televised

So sleep soundly in your beds tonight
For judgement falls upon you at first light

I’m the hand of God
I’m the dark messiah
I’m the vengeful one
(Look inside and see what you’re becoming)
In the blackest moments of a dying world
What have you become
(Look inside and see what you’re becoming)

When you die
You’ll know why
For you cannot be saved
With all the world enslaved
When you die
You’ll know why

When you die
You’ll know why
For you could not be saved
This world is too depraved
When you die
You’ll know why

[x2:]
I’m the hand of God
I’m the dark messiah
I’m the vengeful one
(Look inside and see what you’re becoming)
In the blackest moments of a dying world
What have you become
(Look inside and see what you’re becoming)

(Look inside and see what you’re becoming)
