I woke with a start
Crying bullets, beating heart
To hear all God's creatures
Roaring again

Not a cricket was creaking,
Or a floorboard was squeaking,
And all the world was snoring for show

There's a hole in the ocean floor
There's a hole in the ocean floor
Gonna stop bleeding alone

I woke with a start
Crying bullets, beating heart
To hear all God's creatures
Roaring again...

    My InterpretationThe lines about a hole in the ocean floor could be about an offshore oil spill.
