cause high school
could be
a mini me
of the rest of society
there's always
a prom queen
there'll always be
always be sororities
and sadly
some'll be
eternally
keeping score for popularity
but just cause
they all do
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school

high school is like a big competition
beauty contests, prom court is the mission
there can only be one queen, one king
everyone voting, everyone competing
but these are the rules, the way of high school
when someone puts you down, that's so high school
someone talks behind your back, that's so high school
thinkin' you have to get them back, that's also high school

i know
i'll be
graduating early

cause high school
could be
a mini me
of the rest of society
there's always
a prom queen
there'll always be
always be sororities
and sadly
some'll be
eternally
keeping score for popularity
but just cause
they all do
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school

high school is like the state of the nation
some people never change after graduation
believing any light you shine makes theirs lesser
they have to prove to everyone that theirs is better

these are the rules, the ways of high school
if someone puts you down, that's so high school
believing they're too cool for you, that's so high school
and you believe it too, that's also high school

i know
i'll be
graduating early

cause high school
could be
a mini me
of the rest of society
there's always
a prom queen
there'll always be
always be sororities
and sadly
some'll be
eternally
keeping score for popularity
but just cause
they all do
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school

we've all got bad yearbook photos
which we've forgot to let go
and just like acne our insecurity
should be something we left with the j.v.
so here's to letting go of yearbook photos
things we kept that hold us down
so that was yesterday, there's always tomorrow
we are tomorrow, we are tomorrow

i know
i'll be
graduating early

cause high school
could be
a mini me
of the rest of society
there's always
a prom queen
there'll always be
always be sororities
and sadly
some'll be
eternally
keeping score for popularity
but just cause
they all do
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school
doesn't mean we have to act like we're in high school

    General CommentI was just sad that I didn't hear this song until after graduation...I mean my high school experience wasn't horrible, I enjoyed most of it, but my Sophmore year especially I could've used this!

    General CommentI think this song points out the shallowness of high school while still pointing out how even outside of high school, people still are backbiters and backstabbers and so on.
