"Gone" as written by and Joanna Gika....
No more upset mornings
No more trying evenings
It's the American Dream I am disbelieving.

When the gas in my tank feels like money in the bank
I'm gonna blow it all this time, take me one last ride.

The lights of the city, they only look good when I'm speeding
I wanna leave em all behind me because this time I'm gone
Gone, going for it all this time, gone.

In the far off distance
As my taillights fade
No one to witness but they will someday

Feel like a question is forming
And the answers
I will be what I could be
Once I get out of this town.

The lights of this city
They've lost all of their feeling
I wanna leave em all behind me because this time I'm gone
Gone, going for it all, this time I'm gone

Nothing is everything
I'll have it all
If nothing is everything then I will have it all.
I'm gone.

    General Commentalthough ive never heard this song just by reading it i believe its about how the American Culture is just wasteful. and how we spend to much money on shit that should be cheaper "When the gas in my tank feels like money in the bank" and how he just wans to stop and leave so he doesnt have to deal with the problem

    General CommentSounds to me like they're feeling the need to go to the boondocks lol....

    I think It's just about wanting to get away from the daily hustle and bustle and finding a simpler way,

    But the lyrics are more ominous than say Drifting a song of similar topic...

    Then again, I haven't even heard the song, it was just what I picked up by reading the lyrics...

    And don't hold me to it but, I heard news today that the new album will be out on May 2nd...

    And the first single will be World Wide Suicide...

    General CommentI heard that the album will be out by May 2 too. Read it on the pearl jam forum that some radiostation in USA said so. It haven't been verified by the 10club yet so its just rumors. But it sure as hell would be great, imagine a Pearl Jam concert next summer :D

    I don't really know what the song is about but some parts are clearly about the state of America nowadays.

    General CommentThis song really showcases Eddie's voice,

    I mean wow, his voice was in tip top shape for this session....

    the guitar sounds a bit like 4-20-02, but it's a little bit more complicated, the version I heard was live and Ioved it, I can't wait for the studio version:)

    General CommentI read an interview with Eddie about this song,...

    Eddie said something along the lines of "it's about wanting to leave it all (DUH) just to get in a car and just get away, go far away,... but he's driving a hybrid, because I want him to go far",....

    I love this song,...
