Agoraphobia

Album: A Crow Left Of The Murder (2004)
  • Two people touching lips
    Hands on each others hips
    Nothing else in the world but one another
    The forty second floor
    On a distant shore
    I wonder how we strayed so far from this

    Remember when we were
    Just flesh and bone you sir
    May have forgotten how good your world can be
    So put down your hollow tips
    And kiss you lovers lips
    And know that fate is what we make of it
    Please end this please end this before it ends us, ends us, ends

    I want to stay inside
    I want to stay inside for good
    I want to stay inside for good for good for good for good

    I read the news today
    And everything they say
    Just makes me want to stay inside and wait
    But the better part of me knows
    That waiting in the throws
    Is on a par with reading while my eyes are closed

    "what can I do"? you say
    "its just another day
    In the life of apes with ego trips!"
    Put down your hollow tips
    And kiss your lovers lips
    And know that fate is what we make of it

    Please end this please end this before it ends us, ends us, ends us
    I want to stay inside
    I want to stay inside for good
    I want to stay inside for good for good
    Oh
    I'm gonna stay inside
    I'm gonna stay inside for good
    I'm gonna stay inside for good for good
    I want to stay inside
    I want to stay inside for good
    I want to stay inside
    Don't want to stay inside for good
    Don't want to stay inside for good for good for good Writer/s: BEN KENNEY, BRANDON BOYD, BRANDON CHARLES BOYD, CHRISTOPHER KILMORE, CHRISTOPHER E KILMORE, JOSE PASILLAS II, JOSE ANTHONY II PASILLAS, MICHAEL EINZIGER, MICHAEL AARON EINZIGER

  • Patrick from Overland Park, KsAgoraphobia is actually the fear of having a panic attack in a public place. It is associated with panic disorder in most cases
  • Katy from Atlanta, GaI think it is about how the media and the stuff people say and where the world is going in its downward path are very scary. Scary enough to make you stay inside and wait for it all to be over when people get over themselves and stop being egomaniac monsters.
  • Amber from Melbourne, AustraliaGoing against the worlds culture, he wants to shut himself off from the world but knows thats not going to change/achieve anything. physical not love just lips 'n' hips.. no heart, flesh and bone. Maybe its meaning is that society now seems to be full of ego driven males (apes), we've forgotten in the simple love for one another.
  • Brian from South Bend, Ini thought this was going to be a single because this was the first song they performed live off of aclotm, at least on tv. it was on jimmy kimmel live.
  • Will from Harlem, GaAgoraphobia was originally planned to be released as the third single from A Crow Left of the Murder, but the band/record label (whichever it was) decided to drop it and work on a new album and other projects.
  • Kate from Wellington, New ZealandI think this song is about how the media is constantly making us scared all the time so that we end up buying things that we dont really need to buy and basically just the way the media can have a strong affect on people
