[F#]how long will this take b[G]aba
[F#]how long have we been sle[G]eping
[F#]do you see me hanging on [G]to
F# (riff fill)
every word you say
[F#]how soon will I be h[G]oly
[F#]how much will this cost [G]guru
[F#]how much longer 'til you
[G]completely a[F#]bsolve me
Verse(same):
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
REPEAT CHORUS
Chorus last lines change as follows
Gimme strength o holy one!
How long till enlightenment
How much longer till you
Completely absolve me
[F#]Ave M[G]aria (repeat)
Mail me if you have any hang-ups. Or have any clue as to what is being done during that
vocal solo (quiet one) in the middle.
