I'm just looking out the window and it's cold outside
There are two boys yelling behind me and I'm terrified
Counting trees as they pass me by
And I'm trying not to look across the aisle
'Cause Maya's letting Dan put his hand up her...

    I’m not 100% sure about this theory but I’ll still put it out there. I think it’s about being in a chaotic society. Crybaby is sitting there while everyone is being insane but she’s bored, which shows that in her world all that behavior was normal. She wants to be accepted but she doesn’t want to give in to the craziness. As a quiet kid, you notice almost everything that goes on around you. But all of the things that go on in the bus are things that happen in our society. This is why I believe she is trying to portray how quiet, shy people feel in our crazy world. Thanks for reading!

    I don’t know the full meaning of the song but I do know (not for sure), the driver is meant to be pedophile as he is watching maya and dan make out and be just generally ew. The driver also dosen’t care about smoking, drugs, bullying ect. This
    theory goes with the lines, “I know the driver sees it, I know he’s peeking. In the rear view mirror, he says nothing.”
    This probably makes no sense sooo-

    This song is probably singing about being lonely on the school bus, the kid nobody talks to. Everyone else is crazy with their friends and she's all alone.
