"High School Dance" as written by and Dicky/gittleman Barrett....
Hello World
Remember me?
I'm the sad little fuck
That you failed to see
Who you should have recognized
When you had the chance
Hello motherfuckers
Now it's time to dance
Hello mom'n'dad
Is this a bad time?
If it is too bad
See the reason that im
Disturbing you both
I'm settling scores
You fucked me up bad
This dance is yours
I love to make 'em dance
Dance, Dance, Dance
Everybody dance now!
Hello student body!
Hello faculty!
Show of hands how many
Of you here have met me?
Not too many- who am I?
I'll try not to keep you guessin
I'm your fucked up dance instructor
And you're here for your lesson
Dance, Dance, Dance
Hello world
Take a look at me
Well you didnt when you should have
So Im sure you'll agree
Not paying attention
Has cost you greatly
Some other little fucks
Have been dancin lately
Goodbye student body!
So long faculty!
Show of hands how many
Of you here have met me?
Not too many- who am I?
I'll try not to keep you guessin
I'm the fucked dance instructor
Hope you learned your lesson
Dance, Dance, Dance

    General Commentvery obviously about a school shooting (already said). The "dance" part comes from media culture (when someone tells somebody to dance as he shoots at their feet). The lyrics are like a mix of Alice Cooper-Schools Out and Boomtown Rats- I Don't Like Mondays. It's relate-able and seems more imagined than real.

    General CommentThe first time I heard this, I thought it was extremely cheesey, and I didn't like it becuase it was too 'different' from MMBs typical stuff. But this song kinda grows on you, and it really does make you wanna dance!
