“Claustrophobia” is about understanding one’s fears and considering the detriment you can cause yourself when facing them. The song is written like a confession or someone confiding to a friend. The character “speaking” the song is at a place in life where the fear of reality feels suffocating but they’re aware of the feeling itself being temporary, almost with a sarcastic sense of positivity.
Claustrophobia was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Marcus Scoggins. Music video by Chris Honetso of Rek Media.

“Actuality closes in
As everything falls away.
Courses through my veins.
Comes in waves of loss.
Comes with lines I can’t afford to cross.
I’ve been here before
And I know I’ll be here again.
This is where I’ll be
When you’re ready to leave.
Sweet nothings were spoken perfectly clear.
Ribbons of ties I’ve severed
Hang like trophies on the wall
They represent the times we spent,
And chances I never had at all.”
