Baba
Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie

I've seen them kneel with baited breath for the ritual
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

Chorus: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 'til 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

Chorus

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 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 on to every word you say
How soon will I be holy
How much will this cost guru
How much longer 'til you completely absolve me
Give me strength all knowing one
How long 'til enlightenment
How much longer 'til you
Completely absolve me
