Pressure Sim -- Mesh forming in EMPTY spaces. Why??

Hey all,

I'm trying to perform a pressure simulation on a simplified version of a part that I'd like to have manufactured. However, for my pressure analysis, solidworks sim insists that I want it to add mesh structure in the empty space (voids) in my part. I am sure that this is some setting that I accidentally enabled, so an easy fix (hopefully)?
But now I'm wondering... how could anybody ever possibly want that?? Meshing in spaces where material hasn't been modeled seems like a very unhelpful and Schrodinger-esque problem. Here are some screen grabs of the issue I'm encountering. I appreciate the suggestions. Thanks!
