Hole In The Ocean

This musical video was submitted by its creator, Joe Monto, as a comment on a previous post titled Oil Spill Facts. The comment appears only as the text of a Utube link but is posted here as embedded video for viewing and listening with thanks to Joe.

The following is the text accompanying the Utube.

This is a montomaniac — June 05, 2010 — song written to bring attention to the BP oil spill disaster unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico. This is already the largest environmental disaster in United States History. Dedicated to the 11 men who lost their lives on April 20th, 2010.

"Hole in the Ocean" written by Joe Monto & Steve Bartlett

1st Verse:

The wave crests on fire
And storm clouds below
The oozing dark monster

Creeps silently slow
The heartache of many
The future unclear
We stand on the shoreline
Surrounded by fear


There's a hole in the ocean
That's breaking my heart
When will it end
Why did it start?

Can we ever return
To our blue watered bay
There's a hole in the ocean
That stands in our way

2nd Verse:

For the diving birds diving
And the fish 'neath the waves
There is so much to do
There is so much to save

With bitter tears stinging
For the ones who were lost
Is there really a way
To assess what this cost?


Eleven souls sailing
That April day
It happened so quickly
'Twas no time to pray
