open up your eyes take a look at me
get the picture fixed in your memory
i'm driven by the rhythm like the beat of a heart
and i won't stop until i start
stand out
stand out
some people settle for the typical things
livin' all their lives waiting in the wings
it ain't a question of 'if'
just a matter of time
before i move to the front of the line
once you're watching every move that i make
you gotta believe that i got what it takes
to stand out
above the crowd
even if i gotta shout out loud
till mine is the only face you'll see
gonna stand out
till you notice me
if the squeaky wheel's always getting the grease
i'm totally devoted to disturbing the peace
and i'll do it all again
when i get done
until i become your number one
no method to the madness and no means of escape
gonna break every rule or bend them all out of shape
it ain't a question of 'how;
just a matter of when
you get the message that i'm trying to send
i'm under a spell i'm in over my head
and you know i'm going all of the way till the end
to stand out
above the crowd
even if i gotta shout out loud
till mine is the only face you'll see
gonna stand out
till you notice me, yeah
if i could make you stop and take a look at me instead of just
walking on
there's nothing that i wouldn't do if i was getting you to notice
i'm alive
all i need is half a chance a second thought a second glance to prove
i got whatever it takes
it's a piece of cake
to stand out
above the crowd
even if i gotta shout out loud
till mine is the only face you'll see
gonna stand out
stand out yeah
stand out yeah yeah yeah yeah
stand out
till mine is the only face you'll see
gonna stand out
till you notice me

    General Commentwell, it is true that they sing it after school, but the main singing of the song is before, durring the assembly that he crashes by singing this song, thusly causing the principal to call his dad. so you could say that the song says(in context with a bit of the rest of the movie) that if you try to stand out and be an individual that you will be punished.
