lyrics

"Hazrat, take this away."

Mohammedan miracle maker
Shallow karma miscreant fakir
master gave a yogic gift
but you use it only to lift
touch treasure turn tale
moments later owners wail
the spirit takes and it smiles
your journey stretches another mile...

"Hazrat, take this away."

the Gita wasn't your favorite tome,
there's little room in Kali's home
enrich this life at the expense of the next
just be careful who you've vexed
twenty years to learn the trick
you can't see it leave so quick
you don't care while your pockets are lined
and they can't stop what they can't find...

"Hazrat, take this away."

redemption walks a lonely road
one old man, one piece of gold
one more theft and you walk away
you didn't bring him water today
Hindi yogi opens your eyes
Hazrat won't come to your cries
now you walk off the karma you built
and Hazrat serves only your guilt...

"Hazrat, take this away."
