lyrics

CRY FOR THE FISHERMEN

See the oil come ashore
We can’t fish there anymore
There’s no dolphins jumping to the sky
Watch the sea life wash up and die

A lot of questions have been asked
Time for action’s long since passed
This environmental tragedy
Worst disaster in history

And I cry for the Fishermen…I cry for them
Cries of anger…Cries of fear
When will this madness come to an end

By now we all know how and why
But don’t waste your time and politicize
Because sea life every minute dies!
You just can’t hear them cry

cry for the sea
cry for the lost life
They put up a valiant fight
Against the oil slick of death
For all Gods creatures big and small
Including you and me

And I cry for the Fishermen…I cry for them
Cries of anger…Cries of fear
When will this madness come to an end

And oil company greed
The real cause of this mess
Investors have their profit needs
Forget about the costly safety tests

The crew had orders don’t you know
Losing money every day
Drill faster you're going too slow!
Gotta hit oil it’s the only way

And I cry for the Fishermen…I cry for them
Cries of anger…Cries of fear
When will this madness come to an end

Have we learned anything
Or will we let this happen all again
