Past the billboards and the magazines
I dream about being with you
We can't hear a word they say
Let's pretend we own the world today

I know it's cold outside
But when we're together I got nothing to hide
Hold on tight I will never let you down
It can't rain on our side of town

Wipe the sweat from my hair
Tell me we're not better off
Wipe the tears from my face
The sunny side of the street where we are

    General CommentI think about my best friend when I hear this song. I think you can be close to your best friend without people thinking youre in love sexually, like dating.

    It is bad that when two women are best friends people assume they are lesbians, and it is hurtful because it stops females from having deep friendships.

    General Commentperhaps i'm stupid, but why is this for tammy rae? i would imagine that it would be tammy rae carland (singer for the butchies), because bikini kill thanks her on pussy whipped and le tigre mentions her in a song, but i don't think this is a love song, because kaia wilson and tammy rae are a couple, and i don't think/know if kathleen hanna is straight, bi, or lesbian...could someone explain?

    General Commenti thought she was straight to, but this totally sounds like a love song, and i've read other girls say, "oh this makes me think of my boyfriend," and i think...uh...look at the title, i don't think that was the intention. i mean, i guess when i first heard it i thought it meant that she and tammy rae were striving for something (the revolution?) and it failed or wasn't going anywhere, and they wanted to just pretend that they owned the world today. but then the next two verses come and BAM! it sounds like a love song, but then in a lot of her other songs, it seems to be about an expirience with a guy...*crinkles brow in confusion*

    General CommentKathleen Hanna is bisexual. Though, I'm not sure if she ever had a relationship with Tammy Rae Carland, this song may be more about "the revolution" as bruiseviolet said.
