VIDEO: The Jones share new music to help us through lockdown No. 2

Father/daughter duo shares a version of Jordan Clarke's 'Freaks'

Father/daughter duo Dustin and Jett Jones are back making the best of Ontario's latest lockdown situation by recording new music to share with the community.

This most recent video above is their version of Freaks by Jordan Clarke.

"Due to the lockdown, Jett and I started recording some more song videos," Dustin wrote to SooToday. "She brought me this song I had never heard, asking if we could learn it. It’s a pop song I wouldn’t normally listen to, but after listening to it I found the message to be a great one and relevant in the troublesome times we are in right now."

Indeed, the lyrics and message are relevant to a number of situations, including our current one:

I've been locked in the locker
I was picked last in soccer
And they say that it's all fun
But their fun, it ain't fun, man, I'm done
And I know we're all different
Our beliefs and religions
But I don't see the difference
In me, you
Your, tu
Or moi, vous
So if you've had enough, then

Come to the land of the lost and lonely
Don't be afraid, we'll be one big family
Of freaks like you and me
I know a place where the bruised and broken
Live like the kings and the queens of tragedy
Just freaks like you and me
We are the freaks

I've been kicked down in the dirt
I pretend that it don't hurt
And I know that they're just words
But sticks, stones, they break bones
But just know
We could all be disciples
And we'll write our own Bible
We'll put freaks in the title
It's me, you
Your, tu
And moi, vous
So if you've had enough, then

Come to the land of the lost and lonely
Don't be afraid, we'll be one big family
Of freaks like you and me
I know a place where the bruised and broken
Live like the kings and the queens of tragedy
Just freaks like you and me
We are the freaks

Come to the land of the lost and lonely
Don't be afraid, we'll be one big family
Of freaks like you and me
I know a place where the bruised and broken
Live like the kings and the queens of tragedy
Just freaks like you and me

Come home
Where you can be you, I can be me
We'll never leave, 'cause we are the freaks
Come home
Where you can be you, I can be me
We'll never leave, 'cause we are the freaks
We are the freaks
