Cavetown - Boys Will Be Bugs
I'm a dumb teen boy
I eat sticks and rocks and mud
I don't care about the government
And I really need a hug
I feel stupid (stupid)
Pretend it doesn't bother me
I'm not very strong but
I'll fuck you up if you're mean to bugs
It's getting cold down here underneath the weather
I skipped class to sit with you
I really like your spotty sweater, if
Ladybugs are girls
How do you make kids together?
What's it like in a female world?
I bet it's just so much better
I just turned fourteen
And I think this year I'm gonna be mean
Don't mess with me, I’m a big boy now and I'm very scary
I punch my walls, stay out at night, and I do karate
Don't message me 'cause I won't reply, I wanna make you cry
Ain't that how its s’posed to be? Though it isn’t me
Boys will be bugs, right?
(Boys will be bugs, right?)
“Boys Will Be Bugs” is the first track of the split EP "Animal Kingdom: Comet". This song is about the toxic masculinity toward teenage boys that is portrayed in society. Robbie recognizes that he doesn’t fit in with this stereotype. He doesn’t wanna be mean and bully anyone; he just wants to play with bugs. Robbie’s also known to prefer being friends with girls. This is a theme that shows up during the second verse of the song.
