Baba Lyrics

I've seen them kneel with baited breath for their rituals
I've watched this experience raise them to pseudo higher levels
I've watched them leave their families in pursuit of your nirvana
I've seen them coming to line up from Switzerland and America

How long will this take, baba?
How long have we been sleeping?
Do you see me hanging onto every word you say?

How soon will I be holy?
How much will this cost, guru?
How much longer till you completely absolve me?

I've seen them give their drugs up in place of makeshift altars
I've heard them chanting, Kali Kali frantically
I've heard them rotely repeat your teachings with elitism
I've seen them boasting robes and foreign sandalwood beads

How long will this take, baba?
How long have we been sleeping?
Do you see me hanging onto every word you say?

How soon will I be holy?
How much will this cost, guru?
How much longer till you completely absolve me?

I've seen men overlooking God in their own essence
I've seen their upward glances in hopes of instant salvation
I've seen their righteousness mixed without loving compassion
I've watched you smile as the students bow to kiss your feet

How long will this take, baba?
How long have we been sleeping?
Do you see me hanging onto every word you say?

How soon will I be holy?
How much will this cost, guru?
How much longer till you completely absolve me?

Give me strength all knowing one
How long 'til enlightenment?
How much longer 'til you completely absolve me?

[Incomprehensible]
