Cyborg, android

from Janelle Monae (Ft. Saul Williams) – Dance or Die Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The Metropolis EP and The ArchAndroid tell of the story of Cyndi Mayweather, a fugitive android who seeks freedom for all cybernetic beings to love freely

In an interview she clearly stated what she means by “Android”

When I’m talking about the android, I’m not talking about an avant-garde art concept or a science-fiction fantasy; I’m talking about the ‘other’: women, the negroid, the queer, the untouchable, the marginalized, the oppressed.
