Cavetown - Pigeon Lyrics




Circling around the kitchen
Why has nothing changed
Feed cucumber sandwich to a pigeon
Chipping nail varnish on guitar strings
Got a pillow case made out of money
Feeling pretty fake when I wake up
Tissue paper castle paper caddy
Scaly little friend's got my backup

Didn't give me time to say goodbye in the way that I wanted to
So honey close your eyes and stay like you're supposed to do
Don't you wanna give me time to write another song for you?

Fuzzy feeling and I miss you
Why can nothing stay the same
Fucking stupid head I'm gonna kill you
Melt all your art and drink the paint
I am not a beast I'm not a monster
I don't care what you say
You can't have the bad guys without a hero
And I'm the only one who's got a cape

Didn't give me time to say goodbye in the way that I wanted to
So honey close your eyes and stay like you're supposed to do
Don't know how I'm gonna live without
But I'll stay strong for you

  2. Heather Mckenna

    This comment won’t get noticed but this song reminds me so much of my old friend and I

    I never got time to say goodbye to them properly,I just got up and left without much other than a week notice saying”I’m gonna be moving away” I’ve never seen my best friend since,I miss them so much and this song makes me cry bc of that

    LYRICS

    Circling around the kitchen
    Why has nothing changed?
    Feed cucumber sandwich to a pigeon
    Chipping nail varnish on guitar strings
    Got a pillow case made out of money
    Feelin' pretty fake when I wake up
    Tissue paper castle paper caddy
    Scaly little friend's got my backup

    Didn't give me time to say goodbye in the way that I wanted to
    So honey, close your eyes and stay like you're supposed to do
    Don't you wanna give me time to write another song for you?

    Fuzzy feeling and I miss you
    Why can nothing stay the same
    Fucking stupid head i'm gonna kill you
    Melt all your art and drink the paint
    I am not a beast I'm not a monster
    I don't care what you say
    You can't have the bad guys without a hero
    And I'm the only one who's got a cape

    Didn't give me time to say goodbye in the way that I wanted to
    So honey, close your eyes and stay like you're supposed to do
    Don't know how I'm gonna live without, but I'll stay strong for you

  16. KoolCiddo

    It's ironic that I met one of my best friends, and played this song. I saw Chloe's comment and didn't understand. Then my best friend said she didn't know what has happening. She felt like nothing was real, nothing was happening, and everything feels fake. I asked her if it was disassociation. I showed her the song again after a year and she said she remembered it

  22. Its Cookie UwU

    @cavetown Yo looks like small Ed Sheren but with glases xd

  23. Andrei Schnittke

    I've had constant derealization for most of my life. I know it's selfish but when I found out that other people get dissociated I felt so relieved.

  24. Spoopy Mantis

    Mm. Yes, clothes in bathtub.

  25. missis cup :v

    That's me in 2011 UnU

  26. Sam Turner

    so honey close you’re eyes and just stay like you’re supposed to do uwu

  27. KumPupp

    this is a new aesthetic

  28. Ben BriBran

    I think he needs his citrus friend

  29. a different Lane

    Robbie: honey close your eyes
    *ad pops up for honey*
    me: laughs hysterically

  30. Katie Fingler

    His voice sounds like warm butter on toast

  31. It's shrimp in a bag!

    I don't know if this is what Robbie intended, but to me the kazoo represents the sound of someone talking to you while you're dissociating. You can't even hear the words but just a fuzzy, weird sound of a voice buzzing in your ear. Sometimes in a nagging or mean tone because they don't understand you, they're just scolding you trying to get you to "stop ignoring them". Maybe I'm wrong but that's what it means to me.

  32. ане4ка дубр1к

    it’s so depressed and wonderful in the same time. i love u, Robbie. You are my bestie

  53. Bearz Coverz

    To Robbie
    Hi I’ve been a big fan of you but I do agree with Chloe(sorry if I spelt it wrong) but I think it might be about anxiety disorder and I understand stand I’m late but Casper is also included because of “scaly little friend” I think it’s about him I am glad you love him and I bet he’s in a happy place looking at you being really proud of you I too have experienced having to let go of my reptiles to my bearded dragon suffered sicknesses we could never find out what he had but he had a swallowing problem we had to say good bye and I understand the hard loss of letting go because it’s just like your brother or your kid it’s hard to let them go I wish you the best and love your music I am getting a panther chameleon and I will look at him and think of Casper for you he was a good boi I’m glad to hear this song and I love it
    Love, Bearz Coverz (your loyal fan)
    P.s love your music video!

  54. Charlie Faulkner

    I come back to this video a lot. It's one of those things that sticks in your brain cause its effect is so powerfully resonant. I feel like this conveys emotions and experiences that I just can't quite describe. Thank you, Robin. I am so grateful for your art.

  55. Mangle Furry

    Gee, i never thought that i'm gonna love your song that much. You're amazing! Welp, i wish you gonna have a nice day!

  67. Banana-Kat C:

    2 years late to the party now!

  68. infinite mess

    This reminds me of my dad I lost him at 13 he had a heart attack in the living room with me and I called the ambulance I was so convinced he would be okay he would recover and come home and be mad at the doctors for ripping his favourite shirt, but he never came home and I didn’t get to say goodbye
    The night before we had a big rowel I never leave arguments unfinished anymore I always make sure there’s a resolution before I leave that person

  100. Just Another Nobody

    I like this song but is it bad that first line makes me anxious. Probably because when I am anxious or stressed I unconsciously make myself a bowl of cereal or whenever I go downstairs I start feeling anxious and just start walking back and forth in the kitchen. Idk why... there isn't anything wrong with me but idk why I just do that.
