My soul is heavy with a collective and growing stain

Far from my scene I sense planet in pain

I can not sleep these haunting frightful nights

Death haunts vast reaches of Earth's dear life

Oh God there is now a spot so black

That humankind can never come back

There must be a way that we are changed

Essence of humanity rearranged



Lord take whatever you must take

Just let us learn from our mistakes

We can no longer be as humans have been

A species fallen into such sin



Take human life and make it more fair

Let us learn that planet is meant to share

Let us learn to have more care

For things of sea and things of air



Let us learn to feel where soul hides

Sense that mysterious place inside

Where we connect with all that lives

With heart of Mother Earth that gives



From blackened feathers and blackened gills

From this terrible oil spill

Make a place on the other side

A heaven for those that now are dying



Send the birds the fish the living of the sea

Away from suffering men have caused to be

The hell of oil that is such a curse

Let them elsewhere be released from hurt



And let humans learn to be wise things

Ready to shoulder whatever fate brings

For causing this black hell of oil set free

Killing things that live in the air and the sea
