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

Ooh... I'll cut my hair
Ooh... to make you stare
Ooh... I'll hide my chest
And I'll figure out a way to get us out of here

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Turn off your porcelain face, I can't really think right now in this place
There's too many colours enough to drive all of us insane
Are you dead? sometimes I think I'm dead
Cause I can feel ghosts and ghouls wrapping my head
But I don't wanna fall asleep just yet

Ooh... my eyes went dark
Ooh... I don't know where
Ooh... my pupils are
But I'll figure out a way to get us out of here

Get a load of this monster
He doesn't know how to communicate
His mind is in a different place
Will everybody please give him a little bit of space
Get a load of this train-wreck
His hair's a mess and he doesn't know who he is yet
But little do we know, the stars
Welcome him with open arms

Ooh... time is
Ooh... slowly
Ooh... tracing his face
But strangely he feels at home in this place

    The amount of hardwork they put into this music video is IMMENSE
  • Tadeo Barajas
    Hearing the difference in his voice between "This is Home" and "Home" is the most wholesome thing
  • Melon Chaa07
    i recently came out to my mom as bigender. she said "as your mother, i have to accept you for whoever you become. you're my da- child" and the way she corrected herself from "daughter" to "child" really warmed me

    as a non binary individual with mental illnesses, who needs professional help but doesn’t have an accepting mom, this is so soothing and helps during tough times
  • fishcakes
    im not trans or a part of the lgbtq community but this song makes me feel at home, its peaceful, and a bit mind numbing. it takes me away from all the shit thats being planted in my brain, my mom calling me names, nobody actually caring about me except my father, my weight, my looks, and my overall personality
  • Mars
    for everyone out there who is gay, lesbian, bi, etc. and/or non binary, trans, etc, just know that u should be proud of who u are. there is nothing wrong with who u are, no matter what people tell u or think of u.we luv u!!

    edit: im glad this made y'all feel more loved, this was my intention!
  • that's just a super original idea and really well made I would 100% buy it tho xD

    A year ago, I discovered that my brother was suicidal after coming across his twitter profile. It hurt so much to read the pain he was going through. He always played this song and I loved the melody but was never aware of the lyrics, after a while, I searched for it on spotify. My heart sunk and I cried uncontrollably for 30 minutes.
    Is this how you feel? Is this how you perceive yourself?
    I wish I could do more to help you, my little brother. I listen and I care but I cannot make you tell me your struggles if you dont want to.
    We are on a road-trip right now, he is sitting in front of me, calmly sleeping. I wish I could protect him from the demons that wrap his mind. I really do.

    My name is Cameron. I’m non binary and very mentally ill. My father was abusive and so is my mom. I’m constantly invalidated and every day I get sicker. This song is a huge comfort to me. It helps me know that even though I’m young, I can still choose my own path and make my own decisions. Love you all.

    :Sometimes I come here to cry
    :Sometimes I come here to sing
    :sometimes I come because this is my home
  • xxMilesSugarxx
    I don’t think cavetown realises how much how much we appreciate him. He’s helped so many ill teenagers with his music including me and he will forever be one of my favourite artists in my heart.

    i feel safe sharing how i feel in the comments so if you'd like to read you can! it's gonna be a long one.

    when i was 13 i was on tumblr all the time, its how i found out about the lgbtq+ community. i knew i was bisexual and when i heard the term bi gender it felt so right. however because i was young i didnt feel safe enough to come out. i wanted to change my name to daryn since it was a very gender neutral/masc name but once i realized it would be hard to tell my friends and family i hid it and pushed it away.

    i was 16 when i came out as bisexual then 18 when i came out as a lesbian but now im 21 and label myself as queer since i prefer women, men, and non binary people.

    the last two years ive been fighting with myself, telling myself i cant be non binary, that i was comfortable with myself being afab. that i was comfortable going by she/her.
    but that was until my best friend reassured me that it's okay to feel and express myself as masculine.

    i realized that all throughout growing up i always felt so much more comfortable dressing masculine and that being "girly" was never something i enjoyed.

    im non binary and go by they/them. im not comfortable with she/her or more feminine pet names used towards me.
    i came out to my friends and job on fb that this is who i am. everyone was supportive but people still dead name me or use the wrong pronouns.
    it hurts but i know it just takes some time getting used to it.

    i wish people could stop seeing me as a girl and instead just a human, their friend, their kid.
    im getting a new name+pronoun pin in the mail soon and hopefully a binder next week since i struggle a lot with my chest.

    this is a reminder that you are valid, you are loved and you matter. finding yourself takes patience but its understandable to become frustrated, to question your own identity but the beauty of life is that its all about being yourself, be who you're comfortable being! despite what anyone may tell you.

    if you've gotten this far, thank you <3

    tonight, i wanted to tell my friend about how i am non-binary, and that i like they/them pronouns.
    some stuff happened and im so horribly afraid to tell them, so im here to say that im non-binary!!!
    this has been my biggest comfort song, and this song is always so relatable to me, and i just want to accept myself.

    Hi, I'm a trans man.
    I always say that this song is like the theme of my life, I really love it so much because it always says what I need to hear as well as what I need to say but it doesn't always manage. I live in an lgbtphobic home, so I haven't dared to come out of the closet to my family and friends, even though I really want to. Sometimes I feel like someone dead because I can't be who I am, and sometimes I would love to die too. I fantasize about death every day, and I know it's not healthy for me, but I can't see any other way out. In moments of crisis, this song was my pillar and strength. And I would very much like the stars to welcome me now, but that's not how I want to be remembered. I want to be remembered as a guy who was who he is until the end, and who fought to be who he wanted to be. It's very difficult most of the time, very difficult. But I do know that at some point, "strangely he feels at home in this place". I'm going to find my place, and until I find it, I'm going to keep listening to Robbie in all his songs because he's awesome and always manages to say what I feel all the time.
    Thanks Robbie, and thanks to you who read this little outburst.
    Kisses from Brazil<3
  • ken kaneki
    I have extremely severe bipolar disorder with psychosis and when I get manic, I get so manic I can't remember my own name or who I am. Every time I lose myself, I go back to this song and I remember who I am and where I'm at. This song works better than some of my medications in the short term. Thank you for making this.
  • Rose Tinted
    This song literally saved me from my lowest point, I honestly suffer from alot of anxiety my parents use wrong pronouns and dead name me and I often find myself arguing with them. Since I've came out the closet I've experienced both the best and worst experiences of my life. On one hand I have broke down multiple times but I've also been able to (somewhat) be myself, I have friends who accept me and I couldn't be more grateful for. Without them and without Robbie odds are I wouldn't be alive right now.

  • phyro
    Oh my god, do y'all know how hard it is to make a pop up book?!
    And for everything to fold and work as it should-
    I cry, this is beautiful ´д` ;
  • x_just_Harper_x
    Planning to play this on the guitar on my b-day for coming out, I love you cavetown. Thank you for all you've done :). I was very insecure about myself, I have also anxiety, and your music calms me a lot <|3
