lyrics

Cosmic Spy from Turkistan

There was a man a long time ago
He was a guide for all humanity
The Cosmic Spy from Turkistan The Cosmic Spy from Turkistan
He said I’ll learn all that I can

From Tibet to Africa
Sacred Dance Sacred Dance

There was a man a long time ago
Misunderstanding and repression made him low-key
The Cosmic Spy from Turkistan
The Cosmic Spy from Turkistan

He said “Life is Real only then When I Am”
From Russia to England
Stayed in France Stayed in France

He had a bunch of pals like Ouspensky and J. G.
He made the students for humanity
The Cosmic Spy from Turkistan
The Cosmic Spy from Turkistan
He said I’ll teach all that I can

Free yourself Free yourself
Work and Fast Kill Your Past
