put on a white face. put on the master race. playing a part in a third rate minstrel show lest you should fall from grace. landing beside the spic, MC and Sambo. with the color of skin you're slipped right in. put on a white face. entertain master race. vaudeville inferiority and shame. deny your roots for a loud lauded encore. hide your past. change your name. you can't ever go home. and despite your culture and kin and a slight shade, you're sighned up and the show must go on. cross the border with hope in your heart. wind up exploited signed up to play a cheap part. put on a white face for their master race. live, live your life in fear, shame, and shadows. teach your kids humility. thankful for the opportunity to mimic your oppressor. it's the duality of the have's and have not's. the flame that puts the heat on the melting pot. the secret you carry and the mask that you wear. the assimilation is fucking over.
