Why has nothing changed?
Feed cucumber sandwich to a pigeon
Chipping nail varnish on guitar strings
Got a pillow case made out of money
Feelin' pretty fake when I wake up

This song is about Casper passing for sure. for example ”scaly little friends got my back up”
and “didn't give me time to say goodbye in the way that i wanted to”
We all know he mourned Casper death greatly and this would make a lot of sense.

I’m pretty sure it is about his Chameleon Casper when he passed away. Big bowl in the sky is about him, and he passed away recently while Robin/Cavetown has been mourning about it for some time

i think this song might be about death/mourning. the chorus makes it sound like the person is dying with the "Didn’t give me time to say goodbye in the way that I wanted to" or "Don’t you wanna give me time to write another song for you?" later in verse 2 he says that they're missing someone and that he's mad because of that. last verse of the last chorus part "Don’t know how I’m gonna live without, but I’ll stay strong for you" makes it sound like the person actually died and Cavetown is trying to stay strong through the grief. sorry if this was confusing!!
