Lyrics by Alanis Morissette; music by Alanis Morissette and Glen Ballard 

I've seen them kneel 
with baited breath for their rituals 
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 
I've seen men 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? 


Baba Lyrics
