Chindra’s Lament

Chindra’s Lament (from the album and play Immaculate Misconceptions)

Five hundred disciples
Lived in a monastery
In the Himalayas
Where we lay our scene

CHORUS
Chindra, don’t ya do me wrong
Won’t ya sing that guilty pleasure song?

One woman of mystery, with her twelve-stringed lute
Found the monastery, by the light of the moon

CHORUS
Chindra, with your sweet sounds
Won’t you wake us with your melodies?

BRIDGE
When they heard her sing they lost their devotion… became delirious
Exciting desires… such wickedness

Dhyana, Dhyana, Dhyana – Put the girl away
Dhyana, Dhyana, Dhyana – This isn’t her place
Dhyana, Dhyana, Dhyana – Put the girl away
Dhyana, Dhyana, Dhyana

CHORUS
Chindra, you’ve got to go
We can’t have you, the answer’s no
The evil acts that you led us to
It’s not our fault, we’ll blame it on you.
