"Gone Away" is a song by American Punk Rock band The Offspring. It is the seventh track on their fourth studio album Ixnay on the Hombre (1997) and was released as the second single from the album. The song also appears as the sixth track on their Greatest Hits (2005). The song was written by lead singer Dexter Holland after he lost his girlfriend in a tragic car accident.
The footage for the music video, shot in grainy quality, shows the band playing in a dark, and apparently abandoned slaughterhouse. Dexter Holland, for most of the video, sings to a shining lightbulb, presumably representative of the soul of the lost person. He is the only band member to interact with this bulb, though other lightbulbs are shown in each band member's respective rooms. Dexter also sings into a suspended microphone which is also used in the video; it swings back and forth as the video fades to black. It was produced by Dave Jerden.
