Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Album: Arrivals and Departures (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • This song was written about the drummer from Bayside, John "Beatz" Hollohan, who died when Bayside, Aiden, Silverstein, and Hawthorne Heights were on the "Never Sleep Again" tour. Bayside's van hit an ice patch and flipped over, killing Hollohan. The entire song is saying that they won't forget how great of a person he was. >>
