Explanation
"
I met a homeless man named Rich (he wasn't)
Isn't that terrible
Saying that a homeless man (who is poor because he is homeless) is named Rich is a contradictory term, which Bo says is terrible because the man is reminded of his financial state every single day of his life because of his name.

Meaning
The whole song is about the dying culture of America and the people who are stuck in this culture. Another view could be that the girl is dysfunctional and has mental health issues. She escapes her health through movies. Making herself seem like mickey mouse, and growing up a maid.

Narwhals, They are Narwhals! Narwhals!
(Just don't let them touch your balls!)
Makes a slur that narwhals are sexual predators and shouldn't be trusted around small children. Even older men should be worried whilst going into the sea. Luckily feminists will be happy that there is a song about men being molested.

Explanation
"
No, I, I know it's hard to remember
The people we used to be
It's even harder to picture
That you're not here next to me
You say it's too late to make it
But is it too late to try?
And in our time that you wasted
All of our bridges burned down
Due to the pain that he is feeling, he struggles to remember the love that he had for the girl and is instead filled with pain and regret at the failed relationship. He is also feeling detached from the girl as she had been by his side for so long. The last line says that they have been apart for too long now and the relationship is beyond repair.

Explanation
"
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone?
Baby it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two
It's not actually about money, the word "change" is a figurative substitute for his real feeling of giving all of his love to her and being left with nothing. Furthermore, the "payphone" is a representative of him trying to get back to his old self before the incident with the girl. Finally, he is saying that she has betrayed him by abandoning the promises that they made to each other.
