Baba

Alanis Morissette

Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie


I've seen them kneel with baited breath for the ritual
I've watched this experience raise them to psuedo higher levels
I've watched them leave their family 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 on to every word you say?
How soon will I be holy?
How much will this cost, Guru?
How much longer 'til you've completely absolved 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 you teachings with elitism
I've seen them boasting robes, and forgein sandalwood beads

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've completely absolved me?

Ave Maria, 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 on to every word you say?
How soon will I be holy?
How much will this cost, Guru?
How much longer 'til you've completely absolved me?

Give me strength all knowing one
How long 'til enlightenment?
How much longer 'til you've completely absolved me?

Ave Maria, Ave Maria, Ave Maria, Ave Maria
