Baba lyrics

I've seen them kneel with faded breath for the ritual
I've watched this experience raise them to psuedo 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 on to every word you say?
How soon will I be holy?
How much will this cost, Guru?
How much longer 'till you've completely absolved me?

I've seen them give their drugs in places makeshift alters
I've heard them chanting kali, kali, frantically
I've heard them rodely repeat you teachers with iditism
I've seen them boasting the roads, and forgein dangle woods, beat

How long will this take, Baba?
How long have we been sleeping?
Do you see me hanging on to every word you say?
How soon will I be holy?
How much will this cost, Guru?
How much longer 'till you've completely absolved me?

Ave Maria, Ave Maria...

I've seen them overlooking God in their own essence
I've seen their upward glances in hopes of instant salvation
I've seen their rightousness mixed with the 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 on to every word you say?
How soon will I be holy?
How much will this cost, Guru?
How much longer 'till you've completely absolved me?

Give me strength all knowing one
How long 'till enlightenment?
How much longer 'till you've completely absolved me?

Ave Maria, Ave Maria, Ave Maria, Ave Maria
