“We live in an age of reproduction. Most of what makes up our personal picture of the world we have never seen with our own eyes--or rather, we've seen it with our own eyes, but not on the spot: our knowledge comes to us from a distance, we are televiewers, telehearers, teleknowers.” (M.F.)

YES! Every time I listen to it I keeping thinking it reminds me of something, and you nailed it.
I feel like we start getting into a really dangerous territory when we start trying to write around the idea of what some third-party thought of what our music should be when they can't even comprehend on how to tell us what that thing is, or guide us in a direction that can get us there musically or creatively, or anything. You know, having to have a specific type of song; forcing music to conform to that frame of mind is causing a lot of noise to be in and it's getting away from the song. (...) Let's stop trying to do things that other people want us to do, and let's get back to just being fluid, and writing songs, coming with ideas, and being like, "hey, let's check this out", and grading things, and being honest.
So you want descriptions.... but don't want us to ruin the tracks for you. I agree it's probably best to steer clear of the shout box and the LT forums because honestly, spoilers are not going to stop.
And just to calm your spoiler anxiety, the songs sound nothing alike. At all. lol

2. I like The Predator more than I'll Be Gone tbh. Probably because IMR and IBG suck in comparison to the rest of LT.
Both songs sound completely different. What are you smoking?
Pretender is a favourite of mine and I'll Be Gone didn't remind me of it. They are very different. The chorus have fast tempos but that's about it
It reminds me of you're gonna be alright, kid by the offspring
'I'll Be Gone' is solid, but fails to go anywhere further than that. The strings enhances the song, but it would have still emulated the overall feel without it, which should not be the case.

I saw Cookie Monster mention this elsewhere, but has anybody given this song a second chance by listening to a cd-quality version? You can really hear the strings a lot better, and I'm not usually someone who notices those differences.
Someone said it right, it's completely bland.
I didn't really like it much the first time I heard it, but now, it is one of my favourite off the album. The lyrics in the chorus is amazing, which is probably the main reason I like it now.

Where is all this love for the chorus coming from? I mean seriously! The part where Chester says "When the lights go out and we open our eyes" just sounds awkward, and quite frankly, bad. I know everyone has their own opinions but I honestly can't understand why so many people love the chorus
Picking up the pieces, now where to begin, the hardest part ofending is starting again...
I'll Be Gone is so damn catchy and has Best chorus after Lost in the Echo plus that cool intro really sells it for me [:
