Model World

January 27, 2009 2:39 PM

Another demo I put together over the weekend. It's about that place we all go to escape the grind (no, not MetaFilter).

What happens when someone refuses to allow another person their private refuge, wherever that might be? They'll withdraw further, and in this case our hero hides deep in his own head until he can't take it anymore, and unleashes.

It all started with the aesthetic of the harmony split that happens when the song goes from G to F ("...let it out" on the first verse), and I wrapped a story and song around that. Please enjoy!


"she made the man a lion
but she never let it out
words were so hard to say
to keep his pride at bay

He took his refuge in this, his model world
Only the loneliest place could ever do

They didn't believe in his solace
As they opened up his head
Next time she reaches in
he'll let it out

He'll take his refuge in this, a model world
Long has he longed to be free

If you only trusted
All those things you busted
Maybe you'd still be here"
