Embersonic Cinegram #2

The second in a series of little atmospheric lyric videos, featuring excerpts of songs from my LIVE Honeytone Sessions Album and my Smoke EP:

The song was inspired by the tragic death of fellow drummer-turned-singer Karen Carpenter who, in trying to conform to media driven standards of physical perfection, was compelled to be a 'model of discipline'.

Lyrics:

Less is more if you’re a girl
Something worth dying for in a looking glass world
An empty dress the measure of her success
She’s another femme fatality

She’s the model of discipline
A model of discipline
And no one knows what to say
She’s wishing herself away

She hypnotised body and soul
The camera’s eyes have taken control
And how she tries to be like her heroine
Nothing to criticise thin as a man akin

She’s the model of discipline
The model of discipline
And no one knows what to say
She’s wishing herself away

Heroine chic self control freak
Less is more if you’re a girl
Living in this messed up world
Skin and bone
Just one more stone she’ll say
She’s wishing herself away

And no one knows what to say
To the model of discipline.
