Alanis Morissette


Baba

I’ve seen them kneel with faded breath for the ritual
I’ve watched this experiance with psuedo higher levels
I’ve watched them leave their family in pursuit of their 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 of natured 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 essance
I’ve seen their upward glances in hopes of instant salvation
I’ve seen their ritcheouness mixed with their own loving confessions
I’ve watched you smile at the people who bowed 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
