Remember Remniscing?
Do you recall your high school years?
Spanish teacher catching you chewing in the bathroom,
then smooth talking or crying your way out of detention.
Cause that would just be the end of the world,
if mommy and daddy thought you weren't their golden child.

Remember Prom night?
Missing the dance
but showing up half drunk
to the after party in your daddies tux.
Your friends all asked "where ya been?"
"Oh man I was getting laid,
this shit's for losers and homos."
when the truth was you were standing on a dock,
staring at the rose petals you'd placed there,
the spelled out "Prom?"
But you never brought the girl there to ask her,
so you just stood there and stared at that word,
because she had a boyfriend she didn't like
and you wouldn't want to cause a scene.

And when you drove to the reception,
couldn't bring yourself to go inside,
so just sitting there in your ford pickup smoking cheap cigarettes.
When they opened up the doors,
and everyone filed out,
you peeled out of that parking lot
leaving behind some letters and butts,
but noone will ever know they're from you.

Pray your wedding doesn't turn out the same way,
oh wait,
you told everyone your not getting married,
never settling down.
Well each to his own.

Welcome to paralysis,
welcome to "freedom".
In other words,
welcome to dancehall hell.

The drove/couldn't/sitting doesn't work.

the butts being from you doesn't make sense, either.

oh wait,
this pause could be expressed more effectively, with different punctuation around these words.

your not getting married

you're.

This had something.
There's only one thing we can do to thwart the plot of these albino shape-shifting lizard BITCHES!
