I should have known
the way he talked about
his scathing views on gays and lesbians and everything
he didn't like 'em, he never had
though something told me not to fear - he wasn't really all that bad
just cynical and underpaid
like all the years had never filled some need
I really thought he was my friend
until one day he opened up and said:
"why can't you be submissive like you Asian girls should be?"

now, ladies, gents, don't get me wrong
it's not that I hate everyone
I only want to shed some light on this world we're living on
so why is it that in my country they teach with their gun and their fist?
so why is it that almost everyone I know is really pissed?

"why can't you be submissive like you Asian girls should be?"
said one minority to another minority
a dozen thoughts run through my head
oh god, how can this be?
"why can't you be submissive like you Asian girls should be?"

because according to statistics, the world has grown up
it's really come a way, despite it's lack of consciousness
why can't I be submissive like us Asian girls should be?
look into my eyes and tell me what you see
a girl who lived in fear who had to learn how to be strong
a girl who shed her fear and now she turns it into song
a girl who's not afraid to open up her face and sing
a girl who wants a world that's a better place for living in...
