    General CommentSometimes I think, since there's an underlying theme of leaving throughout Sung Tongs, "you don't have to go to college" means, "you don't have to leave me."

    General Commentsociety now treats education as the only way to succeed-going to college...after that the pressure is on for you job to profit you and make a living.YOU CAN STILL LIVE HAPPY/WELL WITHOUT BANKRUPTING YOURSELF FOR MORE SCHOOLING.

    General CommentSome of the band members have stated that this song is a response to the whole "love your school" vibe of some sixties artists like the Beach Boys and that this is the opposite of those feelings.
