Alanis Morissette Lyrics
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
