The Offspring's, "Gone Away"
The Lyrics:
Maybe in another life,
I can find you there.
Pulled away before your time,
I can't deal. It's so unfair.
He's lamenting the death of someone close to him.

The Offspring's, "The Kids Aren't Alright"
The Lyrics:
Jamie had a chance, well she really did.
Instead, she dropped out and had a couple of kids.
Mark still lives at home 'cause he's got no job.
Just plays guitar, smokes a lot of pot.
Jay committed suicide.
Brandon OD'ed and died.
What the hell is going on?
The cruelest dream, reality.
The song details the downfall of several kids who dreamed of making it big.
