He’s the mayor of Lonely Town, population: one
Stare at a hole in the ground, staring at the sun
And I’m starting to feel like he might be real
Like he’s something I might become
Running for mayor of Lonely Town, population: one
— from Vulfpeck - “Lonely Town”
Repurposed, refurbished communal living spaces. Typically, large malls or shopping complexes.
The average room is small, while far more space is given to shared living quarters. The self-contained ecosystem has no dependencies; it is self-staffed, self-sustaining (food and energy), self-governing, and human-centered.
Spread throughout the halls are 1-person pop-up shops, filled with trinkets, refreshments, games, and other events. Shops would open and close at all times of the day. Shops would change from day to day. There would be celebration days, orchestrated events, and mild element of role-playing. The people here would live happily and fulfilled.
The name “Lonely Town” comes from how they are created. Lonely Towns are created by a single person, whose life purpose was to perform verification of a scientific test. Once completed, they are to be joined with their perfect match - and rule the community together.
If I could bring you back
If I had the power, I’d give you my world
And my life, you’d have it all
But life is not a game
And I know all the rules and I know I must follow
Them every single day
— from Nightingale - “Alonely”
