293 Gone Away - The Offspring

The Offspring stepped out of character for this song about Dexter Holland's dead girlfriend. This song catches everyone by surprise with its sad lyrics coming from an unlikely source:
Leaving flowers on your grave, show that I still care.
But black roses and Hail Mary's can't bring back what's taken from me
I reach to the sky and call out your name. And if I could trade I would

And it feels, and it feels like Heaven's so far away...
And it stings, yeah it stings now
The world is so cold now that you've gone away... - ThatoneMetalhead

294 Lowlands - Gojira

This song is about the lead singer's (as well as the drummer's) mother dying. It describes their mother's ghost traveling throughout the earth alone.
Some lyrics:
Expanded to the state of light
The deepest corners of the world
Gliding through the low lands
And swimming all the oceans

Walking through the silence
Already made it through the night
There will be a new day
Whenever the sun rises - ThatoneMetalhead

296 Glory to the Brave - Hammerfall
297 In This River - Black Label Society
