Simon and Garfunkel – The Sound of Silence Lyrics 2 years ago
@[Solo_guitarist:12471] the reason why i think it is about spiritual religion vs materialistic, is because his vision places him in old narrow roads that all had already abandoned.

I completely agree with @[carabiner86:12470] interpretation. I however believe strongly that it is not commercialism they worship per se. It is the country/government they have built, thinking it is free, yet they are deceived by its brainwashing messages of patriotism. Like uncle Sam's "I want you" posts for instance. I say so because I heard/read somewhere that the song was written during the time of Vietnam War.

I also think it could differ a bit more. The vision's source is spiritual, which still remains within the "dream" i.e world they live in. In comparison to the materialistic people who although still aware of or familiar with spirituality existance, insist on bowing to the made god, and refuse to join the speaker away from the deception.
