May 2017 - Happy Asian Heritage Month!

lyrics

you saw me at the bar where you were drinking
with my black hair and my exotic being
you reeked of cheap cologne and Asian fetishes
you hit me with your gaze, so male and colonialist

you asked me where I'm from, I said Waterloo
my honest answer wasn't good enough for you
"tell me where you're from, where you're really really from?"
I'm finding your stupid seduction burdensome

and I’m not impressed by your Japanese
mainly because I’m not Japanese

so take out your foot from your mouth
keep your mouth shut

you told me once you spent eight months
hanging out in Itaewon
singing karaoke and drinking soju
with other English teachers like you

now you think you know everything
about the world that I live in

so take out your foot from your mouth
keep your mouth shut

you don’t know it but I heard
you throwing around those ugly words
but you’re not racist you assure me
you hooked up with an asian once in university

so somehow your sexual history
makes you entitled to insult me

so take out your foot from your mouth
keep your mouth shut
I don't want to hear it

I’m more than a language
or some kind of symbol
food from afar
I’m more than a costume
that you want to dress in
just for a lark
