Sound of Silence    (EGO 120)  Called by Paul Cote (www.paulcotecaller.com)

OPENER



Circle Left
Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Do an ALLEMANDE LEFT with the CORNER, DOSADO
Do an ALLEMANDE LEFT with the CORNER, WEAVE THE RING
And the vision that was planted in my brain (still remains)
SWING, PROMENADE
Within the sound of silence

FIGURE



(HEADS/SIDES) You SQUARE THRU count me FOUR
Meet that CORNER, DOSADO
SWING THRU and then the BOYS RUN RIGHT
FERRIS WHEEL around that ring tonight
CENTER TWO PASS THRU, TOUCH A QUARTER
You SCOOT BACK then you're gonna SWING, PROMENADE
And touched the sound of silence

MIDDLE BREAK



Grand Square
And in the naked light I saw,
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
ALLEMANDE and WEAVE
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dare (SWING, PROMENADE)
Disturb the sound of silence

CLOSER



Grand Square
"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, ALLEMANDE and WEAVE
And the sign said...The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls (SWING, PROMENADE)
And whispered in the sound....

TAG



.....of Silence.

ADDITIONAL LYRICS



This square dance is based on the new version of "Sound of Silence" by "Disturbed". It varies from the traditional Simon and Garfunkel tune and has a much darker feel. I strongly recommend watching the "Disturbed" video on YouTube. https://youtu.be/u9Dg-g7t2l4
