This is Home Lyrics

Often I am upset that I cannot fall in love but I guess
This avoids the stress of falling out of it
Are you tired of me yet?
I'm a little sick right now but I swear when I'm ready I will fly us out of here
OoOoOo I'll cut my hair
OoOoOo to...

    The song represents the struggles of a transgender male. "I'll hide my chest" "I'll cut my hair" signify they are transitioning to male. They are most likely experiencing gender dysphoria. Some of the lyrics have small hints to depression and/or committing suicide, such as "Little do we know the stars welcome him with open arms" and "sometimes i think I'm dead". The part where it says, "I cannot fall in love" may suggest having troubles finding love because of his being trans or he may possibly be asexual or something. *deep breath* that took a while

    I used to personally know Robin (Cavetown) and he said that he makes it as the struggles of being transgender, Dysphoria, cutting your hair, chest binding, getting made fun of for being different etc. Lots of people believe it is about depression which at the same time is a key factor of gender dysphoria. I myself am a transgender male and I think this song is kind of my "anthem". I hope I helped someone out <3 Oh and if you didn't know Cavetown himself is trans :)

    I think it's him transitioning from ftm and wanting someone to love him for he is. He "feels dead" because sometimes life is just hard and you need a break sometimes.

    I think the song is about trying to protect someone you care about and telling them about yourself.There are a lot of transmale and depression hints, and how people see him as a monster for not knowing himself, and the song tied up with saying that this is normal for him and feels like the best it can be/he is comfortable with being this uncomfortable.

    That they might have some sort of cancer, which would be why they are cutting their hair of and is ill. Idk... Just a thought
