The DVD/MP4 edition of PHOBIA have a multi-angle feature where angle 1 is the main video and angle 2 is the booklet. Vrangsinn used 40’s style animation techniques and animated all lyrics word by word with pen/paper and a photo-camera. the lyrics are synced to the music giving it a non intended karaoke feeling. The animation of the booklet took 2/3 of the entire production time.
The DVD edition also contains multiple audio tracks where one of them is the music without vocals. Switch to audio track 2 and video angle 2 and you have a instant karaoke machine. This is as stated earlier not the intention at all. The intention with this was more a joke. As Vrangsinn have a very special voice that takes some getting used to – Vrangsinn stated himself “If they don’t fucking like it they can turn it off”
THERE IS SOMETHING YOU NEED TO KNOW (THE WOLFSONG)
Life from the angle of the Wolf. We all identify ourselves with different animals in this world. The Wolf is just one of the animals living inside me. The Wolf is the cold logic being in my world and this is his tale. There is a Wolf in all of us and this song is your journey.
LIVING THE ETERNAL YESTERDAY
Depression is haunting so many people. So many spend the entire life hiding inside in fear and forgetting to live life while they have time to do that. This song is for all the ones who gave up living.
THE EMPTY PLACES
Without the sad faces….. My favourite thing about Norway is the huge empty places where you can wander around for days and never meet another human being. The places you can allow yourself to be truly free
IN THIS WORLD (BLEED WITH ME)
In this world we all were born to die alone. About the sad facts of life. We are here alone and our journey in life is one we do alone. We never really know other individuals and in this world we can never trust anyone as long as we can not even trust ourselves.
DO YOU EVER?
A song about lost dreams, everything you failed to do With your life, all failures you ever did and all your regrets in life. If you have lived for a while you will meet yourself in this song.
A SAD CAT BOUNCING IN BETWEEN THE DANCING FLOWERS
The tale of Bouncycat Grim. Another animal living inside me. This is the world according to the cat in me, the old hopeless cat With all his playfulness.

This is the one flirting With you in a dark pub or the one you meet in bed or even in your worst nightmare.
WHO? WHAT? WHERE?
A song about mental illness. About this chaoz living inside you. All the confusion and anger. All your sadness of living and willingness to end this life. This song is for all those who are no longer With us and is dedicated to the loss of so many loved ones in this world.
