the bar is filling up like a metaphor for private school

learning how to learn
and how to make the grade

the minors hang from the rafters as a metaphor for hanging on to their youth

hanging on for their lives
hanging on the future

the ups and downs of ears as a metaphor for recess

just give'm fifteen minutes of fame
just give them fresh air

drunk girls talk about dancing on the off beat as a metaphor for living out of time

recognize it to disregard it
distance yourself from it

the boy with the best haircut waltzes around as a metaphor for the new kid

standing at the front of the class
i hope your superficial too

2am and time to file out like a metaphor for the bell

its over
and time to be yourself again
