    Baba

    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 to 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 '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
    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

    give me strength all knowing one
    how long 'til enlightenment
    how much longer 'til you
    completely absolve me
