"Agoraphobia" as written by and Bradford Cox Lockett Pundt....
Comfort me you cover me
Comfort me, comfort me
Cover me cover me
Comfort me, comfort me

I had a dream no longer to be free
I want only to see four walls made of concrete
Six by six enclosed
See me on video oh oh oh
Feed me twice a day
I want to fade away, away

Cover me cover me
Comfort me, comfort me
Cover me cover me
Comfort me, comfort me

And after some time I know I would go blind
But seeing only binds the vision to the eye
I lose my voice, I know
But I've nothing left to say
(Nothing left to pray)
No echo in this place

    General Commentpeople with agoraphobia have panic attacks in public places. they begin to avoid those places which they expect will make them feel more anxious. gradually their "world" gets smaller and smaller, until they refuse to leave home.

    we both have it, my mother and I. she will leave home only to a small number of familiar destinations: and even then, only if accompanied by certain trusted people. if these people fail to provide constant reassurance, she becomes disoriented and unpredictable.

    being 25 years younger, I haven't yet reached that point. although in recent years I have noticed it's becoming increasingly difficult to leave my apartment, and I must follow time-consuming rituals/compulsions.

    self-imposed house arrest. extend this notion farther, making it more and more literal until nothing is "safe" except the space around your body where you will remain until you die. or, what encloses it after death.

    I wish it were something I could regard with intellectual curiosity (implying emotional distance). but it's too real.

    General Commentin an interview bradford said this song was inspired by something fictional he saw about someone wanting to be buried alive, but nursed constantly so he was always on the edge of death

    General CommentAgoraphobia means the fear of crowds or open areas, so the buried alive thing could make sense. It sounds as if he says come for me, comfort me, and cover me, so the above lyrics might be right.

    My Opinioni thought he was saying 'see me on video'

    this song is kind of disturbing in a subtle kind of way

    General CommentWhen I bought the CD, the cover had a review on it that said "A disturbing plea for erotic asphyxiation". Upon listening, I heard three things: Cover Me, Comfort Me, and Come (or "Cum") For Me.

    Disturbing Indeed.

    General Commentthe whole album should be called agoraphobia.

    Cover Me (Slowly) is the song that gives the feel of agoraphobia best though.

    General CommentLovely album. I should have paid more attention to it when I got it. I was terrified to leave the house for a year. The panic attacks were horrible. I then could only stay in the same room, and even moving to another room or turning off the TV would be enough to make me vomit. Of course those were dark times, but I don't mind remembering them. I love the aura of the music.
