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 is a about a transgender, aromatic man that is going through depression and people are making fun of him for being different. About the being dead part was his suicidal thoughts. In the last part about being at home it's about him feeling comfortable for who he is so he "feels at home." Personally, I think this song is deep and has alot of meaning to it. That is why I love this song. It shows how the person is feeling and hie has been going through.

    I can only assume that this song is about of a transgender male because of the lines “I’ll hide my chest” and “I’ll cut my hair”
    I can tell that they probably have depression because of the lines "sometimes i think I'm dead"

    Have a goodnight!

    So this song is very hard to crack. The opening line is “Often I am upset that I cannot fall in love but I guess this avoids the stress of falling out of it.” Robbie (Cavetown) has said in the video titled ‘Being aro is fine’ he talks about how he is Aromantic which means that ‘An aromantic is a person who experiences little or no romantic attraction to others. People identifying as aromantic can also experience romance in a way otherwise disconnected from normative societal expectations.’ (http://wiki.asexuality.org/Aromantic) But the song also has lines like ‘I’ll cut my hair’ and ‘I’ll hide my chest’ which could point to transitioning from one gender to another. There are also lines like ‘Are you dead sometimes I think I’m dead’ which could have something to do with depression.

    I was on YouTube watching gacha and came across a music video called this is home I thought this sounds nice.I watched it I loved it.Because there not many songs about Lgbtq people.I was moved by the song but the lyric "when I'm ready I will fly us out of here" it was telling me that that he was suicidal and maybe had depression.And was getting bullied.

    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.
