Wow. I just listened to this song by Ellis Paul.
It’s soulful, folk-driven, and pretty intense. I think you’ll recognize from the lyrics that it was written just after Hurricane Katrina. And while the song has a sort of feel of helplessness, Ellis Paul has turned it into something very helpful. He’s donating a portion of each sale of the live version to Red Cross hurricane relief efforts.
So listen to the song here. If you like it, you know what to do.
