I've seen them kneel
With baited breath for their 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

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?

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 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 'till you completely absolve me?

Ave Maria, Ave Maria
Ave Maria, Ave Maria
