Sick of division, powered by ambition
Brushed into a corner from their social superstition
What's your favorite color, boy?
White girls are who he enjoys
Therefore I'm not worthy of his attention
Should I mention
All the times boys have called me
Unattractive, chinky, bitch
Just because I don't resemble a white model
From a catalogue from Abercrombie and Fitch?
When my skin doesn't show up in his spectrum
I'm told to shg it off, yet I'm still forced to respect him
Doesn't take me seriously
A small brown girl from the Philippines
Sorry I don't meet your criteria or your basic shallow needs
But what I can't change is none of your business
If we want to make progress
We must redefine flawless
According to the man, the perfect woman
"Is without any blemishes or imperfections"
But who can perfectly steer this game in my direction?
Men think, as a woman, my purpose is only to give men erections
According to what law? What book? What section?
I want to change the world
But they say "Miss, please, be rational"
I refuse to be caged in a kitchen
Have a taste of the sandwiches you'll be missin'
Because in the end, it'll be my ass that you're kissin'
Maybe I like being an Asian woman who dares not fall into submission
I've got big plans that'll soon be taking flight
Don't dare hold me down, I will put up a fight
Fly right over their heads
I could be dead
Doing perfectly what I've been told
Sit down, do nothing, grow old
Failure is imperfect
To give up instead of working for it
I'm still going last time I checked
So by definition, I'm still perfect--ly capable of being flawless
Except it is my choice, not the media's, not the man's
Of what parts of me make me a godess
