"H Model" as written by James Christopher Adkins, Richard E Burch, Zachary Michel Lind and Thomas Darrell Linton....
"Straight outta Phoenix boys."
Stay up late and listen in.
Trading insult for your time.
It breaks my heart in half to see her jumping up and down screaming:

"Cash in honey, cash in now."
Lift your hands up slow.
If only you could see yourself.
Everything you are imitate and water down.

Just because you'll never have your politics with perfect means,
Doesn't mean you talk the round and round.
Forsdale's syringe is wearing so thin.
Lift your hands up slow.

If only you could see yourself.
Everything we are imitate and water down.
They'll never know your world no matter how they try.
It's your world.

Never know, they'll never know your world
(it's above us)

    General CommentI think it is a reference to a car! but i don't think that is what the songs about! i think he is talking about the music biz! and how hard it is. "cash in honey cash in now" make me think someone is telling him to give it up. but i'm prob tottally wrong! great song regardless

    General Commentjusting reading the lyrics, this song sounds like "your new aesthetic". and if what you said, dean martin, is true about what this songs about, then isnt it the same meaning kinda as 'your new aesthetic' also?

    General CommentOh yeah I deffiently get that feeling too! I love the line in the new asthetic "these days are numbered i can tell, so until the crash i'll write you down". I think they both have strong leaning toward the music biz! but i may be wrong! either way JEW are a great band! rock on

    General CommentI think this song is about the music industry and how hard it is. As probably everyone knows, JEW were messed about by their first record company who dind't really care about them (think it was Capitol?), so this is maybe aboput disillusionment at that...

    General CommentListening to it first time, I thought it was about someone who refused to agree with what other people did. The line "They'll never see your world, no matter, matter how hard they try" Love the song. Thank god for the singles.

    General CommentAfter a search on Yahoo, "H Model" probably refers to an acoustic guitar made by the Santa Cruz Guitar Company (santacruzguitar.com/…).

    Assuming that "Forsdale" is not an obscure reference to someone or a personal friend. It could refer to Dr. Louis Forsdale who was a professor at the Teachers College at Columbia University. It appears that he was involved with music and communications. He is also credited in a few school textbooks. I'm am not convinced that this is what it is and it doesn't explain the syringe part; however, when you search for "Forsdale" he is pretty much the only name that comes up.

    At the same time, given what the rest of the song appears to be about, regardless of who Forsdale may be, what the line amy be referring to is someone trying to inject new life into the band, industry, etc., but after a while it gets harder and harder. And with each injection of life (BTW, I am not making a drug reference of any kind.) the syringe wears thinner until their is nothing left.
