Song Spinner: Gone For Good

'The Host is Gone' represents Gone For Good's attempt to combine the harder sound of their most recent album with the poppier sound of their past efforts. Nick Johns adds the lyrics as a last step after Ryan Perkins and Gene Miller fill out his original compositions.

Lyrics:
Verse One
I heard you were in trouble again, it's hard to stay clean too long
Smashed on the pavement is where some of us belong
Wasted days and lonely nights, they always come to a close
And now you're left counting backwards while another one goes

Chorus x2
You close your eyes and you fake it
Just cuz' you want doesn't make it true
When you don't get anything, or too much about you

Verse Two
Slap the face and slick back the hair, are you still in there?
The host is gone, yeah it's hollow, but in the mirror you just stare
You've been down for years, been down this road, been down so long
When you followed path to conclusion did it leave you strong?

Chorus x2
You close your eyes and you fake it
Just cuz' you want doesn't make it true
When you don't get anything, or too much about you
