Your world not mine
Your world not ours
Your world not mine
Your world not ours

I will resist with every inch and every breath
I will resist this psychic death
I will resist with every inch and every breath
I will resist this psychic death

There's more than two ways of thinking
There's more than one way of knowing
There's more than two ways of being
There's more than one way of going somewhere

Silence inside of me, silence inside
Silence inside of me, silence inside
Silence inside of me, silence inside
Silence inside of me, silence inside

I will resist with every inch and every breath
I will resist this psychic death

    General CommentI think this song is about living in a world you feel absolutely in conflict with (your world, not ours, your world, not mine). The mainstream culture feeds you certain images and ideas (a way of being, a way of thinking, etc.) which are not representative of you, and only cater to "one particular point of view" (as mentioned in another Bikini Kill song).

    In this way dominant culture kills the "other" or minority. This song is about "sticking it to the man" and resisting the killing of yourself, and your integrity, for the sake of conformity. It's about not letting your oppressors get you down, and still "fighting the good fight", despite a culture or person who makes you feel like shit, resisting the so-called "psychic death".

    General Commentit talks about close minded-ness, how the world around you tries to force a determined way of thinking and living on you, and this is like psychological death. she will resist it.
