My guru was one scary son of a bitch
He scared all my fear away
Whenever I’m frightened and think of his smile
There’s nothing left that’s scary at all
Nothing left of fear at all

My guru was a very greedy man,
He took my territory away
Whenever I’m greedy and think of his smile
There’s nothing left to possess at all
Nothing left of greed at all

My guru was a very impatient man
He hurried all my doubts away
Whenever I hesitate and think of his smile
There’s nothing left to question at all
Nothing left of doubt at all

My guru was a very passionate man
He seduced all my attachment away
Whenever I’m grasping and think of his smile
There’s nothing left to hold on to at all
Nothing left of attachment at all

My guru was a very ignorant man
He ignored my stupidity again and again and again and again
Whenever I’m stupid and think of his smile
There’s nothing left to ignore at all
Nothing left of stupidity at all

My guru was one scary son of a bitch
He scared all my fear away
Whenever I’m frightened and think of his smile
There’s nothing left that’s scary at all
Nothing left of fear at all
Nothing left of fear at all
