Staple Album: Of Truth and Reconciliation Track: Sound Of Silence
Sound Of Silence Lyrics
They're coming to take our resolve away To steal all the progress that we have made Our backs to the wall, but our hands clasped like steel And we'll never regret; though they say that we will
We'll smile at the sound of silence...
These voices say that we'll die - we'll fade by the road as cities fly by We will survive and, hearing silence, we'll smile When it hurts to be in love
I'd take it all back if it meant gaining more But I've never fought this hard for you before They all say stop, but these time zones have shown What you mean to me and just how far I'll go
Lyrics by Darin Keim, Music by Staple
Song Description: "I wrote this in honor of our guitarist and all the musicians who are married or are trying their hardest to maintain a relationship while being on the road. I think it can be a testament to greater love, rather than less, that they are willing to live this life. They're fighting through it. This suggests that they love each other dearly because they haven't given up and are willing to make one of the most demanding schedules work in their lives." - Darin Keim (Staple)
