 One Flower Under A L.A. Freeway

Oh Asia, Oh You  (To My Asian Men!)

Not only the outside,
But from the inside
It will always remain as Asia,
Japanese like you

We will never blend together,
Yellow of the East
White of the West
Oh Asia, oh you

From the sword to the cyber,
We each do it differently
Cut the languages into two
The ying of me, the yang of you
Oh Asia, oh you

Lavishly painted and poised by the sea,
Silky wings rub againest a Kabuki dancer
You were just a colorful flutter in the setting red sun of my Western life.
Oh Asia, oh you.
