Cavetown: Juliet Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2018
But I can't
Get anything out of my eyes
Or my head, did I die?
I need to run
But I can't
Get out of bed for anyone
Not for you, hun
My sour boy is a pain
I wanna shoot him in the brain
But I'd miss him in the morning

Perhaps "Juliet is about Robbie, the song writer's experience with gender dysphoria. Juliet represents his dead gender, female, while Sour Boy is Robbie's goal. "I wanna make a color that no one has ever seen" may be a reference to how Blue and Pink are gender colors, so maybe making a new one is what Robbie wants.
anonymous Dec 22nd report
My interpretation of this song is that it is showing how he (Cavetown) feels on some of his low days. He wants to get up and talk about it but he can't find the energy or the motivation. He wants to do better and do the impossible like making a new color and it is keeping him down. He feels like there is a bully in his head telling him how terrible he is even though that's not true.
The song may even be saying that Juliet is someone who keeps him going and keeps him motivated even in those really though days.
