Mother Jones

Doug Elkins

Disenfranchisement. The bitter truth: the real people in power here in America and abroad simply could give a ‘f…’ about anybody’s interest but their own. Companies like Monsanto continue to poison the world, the financial systems that gutted the world economy continue to thrive, etc. The guilty go unpunished. The huddled masses continue to huddle. My bleeding liberal heart is sickened -- can someone please heal my Mother Jones?

I'm So Lonely

Doug Elkins

This song is not auto-biographical. I certainly have my issues, but desperate loneliness is not currently at the top of that list. Not long ago I was having the same conversation over and over with someone very close to me and no matter what I said to lift him up I just could not get through. To shake off some of the sadness and the frustration I was feeling, I created this freaky little track. I’m not sure how much better he is doing but I believe he has left that particularly dark moment. However, working on this song has been very therapeutic for me. From the Robert Palmer “Looking for Clues” inspired backgrounds on the B-section to the Elvis-gone-amuck ending, it definitely puts a smile on my face.
