It was the ideal day for outcasts to be relegated
to the bottom rung of this
ladder that we're on
A day for picking favourites
A day for letting people
know they put their noses were they really don't belong

So long to all those
high-school dancing days

A social circumstance, in fumbling 'round the
outcasts you are
leaping over puddles you are pretending that you see
like the drunken sot who stumbles 'cross my parking lot
his leaping over
nothing sure seems crazy to me

So long to all those high-school dancing

The messages abound, all these graduated lines
The closer to
perfection the more cast-off left behind
Is it just the game, the thrill of
being chased?
Every heart's belonging, someone else's out of place
I stepped
out of line you watched me make a scene
I saw someone worthy in myself is all
I mean
Crowds change off their clothes, the queens may change their name
never really over until everyone's the same

A broken nose is sore but
waiting for an hour or more for someone to acknowledge you is not so quick to

So long to all those high-school dancing days
