Song Transmasc

This Is Home by Cavetown

(This is an unfinished page!)

Description:

This Is Home is a transmasc anthem, with the lines “I’ll cut my hair, to make you stare, I’ll hide my chest”. There’s also a part that represents someone else talking about him, which is in some ways exactly what a transmasc person both would and wouldn’t want to hear (“Get a load of this trainwreck, 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”). It’s also important to note that this was recorded before Cavetown transitioned, which makes the song representative even for pre-t transmascs.

Full song 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

I’ll cut my hair
to make you stare
I’ll hide my chest, and I’ll
figure out a way to get us out of here

Turn off your porcelain face
I can’t really think right now and this place
has too many colors,
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

My eyes went dark
I don’t know where
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 trainwreck
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

Time is
slowly
tracing his face,
but strangely he feels at home in this place
