lyrics

ASIAN DRIVER

i’m gonna get in your lane and piss you off
i’m gonna be the one you blame when you get a cough
i’m gonna block your cock when you want some ginger – we were here first
all of your expectations is what I’m not

well it’s such a funny scene
everybody around me
acts exactly like me
but it’s always only me
that they tend to scrutinize
‘cause they don’t want to oblige
to the way I’m always seen
What a novelty to see

(chorus 1):
i’m an asian driver
i don’t have the time
to follow all the signs
like a fuckin’ concubine
i’m an asian driver
i’m not gonna play nice
if you want some of my rice
you better eat the spice!

i didn’t get this far playing up to type
the soft spoken subservient kind of prototype
‘cause I only get what I want working twice as hard
so i can be visible enough not to discard

so i’m driving on my path
and i’m stepping on the gas
i don’t mean to cut you off
but you’re privileged enough
‘cause when everybody sees
you as somebody to beat
someone not to share the road
with, it puts you in the mode

(repeat chorus 1)

(chorus 2):
‘cause i am a survivor
you better give it up
‘cause i will not live up
to the image you thought up
i’m an asian driver
won’t do what you expect
i won’t always say yes
i won’t bow for your respect

everybody’s focusing on me
instead of hating everyone equally
everybody’s looking for opportunity
to cut in line and get all the victory
and everybody thinks that it isn’t fair
when someone who looks like me doesn’t wanna share
as if i’m the only one who’s not playing fair
as if i’m the only one acting unaware

everybody’s got their ideas ‘bout what i do
but i probably speak better English than you
i suck at math and i won’t fix your computer -- get a clue sir
i’ve measured up more than once with the likes of you

so you can block me on your grind
and continue to malign
‘cause i’m gonna stick around
and continue to confound
everything you preconceive
all the bullshit you believe
either way i’m gonna drive
on this road and i’ll thrive

(repeat chorus 1 and 2)

i’m gonna get in your lane and piss you off!

about

RexySpice Toronto, Ontario

I aim for an aesthetic that is equal parts lyrical wit and acoustic angst. If Chrissie Hynde and Billy Bragg had a kid raised by Madonna and Ani DiFranco, I’d like to think he’d sound just like me. I used to call myself acoustic punk, but that felt rather conflicting and restricting given my love of the Spice Girls. I’m spending 2016 recording a long-overdue album and can’t wait for you hear it. ... more
