Bury me in the stacks, (in the back)
Matriculate, move through the cracks (through the cracks)

Got no sorority sister
A college try gives me blisters

Make those pledges walk the planks (walk the planks)
Guess I'm majoring in angst (angst)

Got no sorority sister
A college try gives me blisters
A college try gives me blisters

Initiation shifts orientation

    My OpinionThis is how I interpret it:

    "Bury me in the stacks, (in the back)"
    - It refers to all the things you have to do when you go to college, you are buried in work

    "Matriculate, move through the cracks (through the cracks)"
    - Nobody really pays attention to her. Maybe she doesn't have any friends

    "Got no sorority sister"
    - Yes, she doesn't have any friends

    "A college try gives me blisters"
    - College sucks

    "Make those pledges walk the planks (walk the planks)"
    - Before going to college she had a lot of ambitions, and she promised herself she would have done great, but things are not going the way she thought and she kinda feels like she is losing hope. College is actually destroying her dreams

    "Guess I'm majoring in angst (angst)"
    - As a consequence of college being so shitty, she feels frustrated and angry because this is not how things were supposed to turn out

    "Initiation shifts orientation"
    - Before going to college she had certain expectations, but after being initiated into it she realises that maybe she wants something else from life. Maybe she started studying because she wanted to get a degree and become a millionaire, now that she sees how emotionally draining it is she is thinking "Why the hell am I doing this? Is it really worth it? Am I wasting my life? Are there other experiences that I'm missing? Is being a millionaire really important in life? etc. etc..."
