"So Long" as written by Daniel Romer-friedman and Jenny Owen Youngs....
So the house is wired from floor to attic,
You can't get in or out.
And your fast response is automatic,
But no one hears your shout.

Hoping against a hope,
It's rail thin.
All that you know from now:
You'd be waitin'.

So long.
So long.

So you walk the path through the sea of sleepers
And keep your eyes ahead.
Cos you know that light is finders keepers,
But what you found instead

Is no one was made for this,
To be lonely.
Keep it against your chest,
This is only

So long.
So long.
So long.
So long.

No one can put you back
How you were then.
Chemicals must react,
It's a certain.

So long.
So long.
So long.
So long.

    Song MeaningJ.O.Y said the inspiration from this song came when she was reading about the Jonestown Massacre (in which all those people in the religious cult commune drank koolaid with poison and engaged in mass suicide). The song is particularly inspired by a 5 year-old boy who hid in the woods and watched until the mass suicide was over.
