I don't think it's on an actual song.

Thank you David.

From that link...

"In the wake of birthday salutations, Reporters Notebook rolled out one of Robert Fripp's most quoted misquotes, namely “Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence.” 

The actual quote is as follows:

Music is the cup which holds the wine of silence. 
Sound is that cup, but empty. 
Noise is that cup, but broken. 

The aphorism dates from the spring of 1980 when Fripp was playing in Paris with The League Of Gentlemen. 

The origin of the phrase's popularity, albeit in a corrupted form, seems to stem from its misuse in a 2005 episode of the very popular  ITV detective series, Rosemary And Thyme entitled, The Cup Of Silence

During the murder mystery show, writer Stephen Gallagher has one of the characters raise a glass and offer the toast, "Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence", even having the character attribute the phrase to Robert Fripp. "

 The actual quote makes more sense...
                      Music is the cup which holds the wine of silence. 
Sound is that cup, but empty. 
Noise is that cup, but broken.
