Richard Cory

They say that Richard Cory
Owns one half of this whole town
With political connections
To spread his wealth around
Born into society
A banker’s only child
He had everything a man could want:
Power, grace, and style

But I work in his factory
And I curse the life I’m living
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be
Richard Cory

The papers print his picture
Almost everywhere he goes
Richard Cory at the opera
Richard Cory at a show
And the rumor of his parties
And the orgies on his yacht!
Oh he surely must be happy
With everything he’s got

But I, I work in his factory
And I curse the life I’m living
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be
Richard Cory

He freely gave to charity
He had the common touch
And they were grateful for his patronage
And they thanked him very much
So my mind was filled with wonder
When the evening headlines read:
“Richard Cory went home last night
And put a bullet through his head”

But I, I work in his factory
And I curse the life I’m living
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be
Richard Cory

som do silêncio

 

Hello, darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again

 

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone

 

 

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening

 

 

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
