lyrics

We offer her apples and honey, tequila and cigarettes
How many red and white roses
Will buy our earthly regrets?
As sand flows through the hour-glass
And we hang by a silver thread
She looks into our future
And protects us when we’re dead

Señora de las sombras, Señora de mi corazon
Absolve us from these wicked things
That on this earth we’ve done
Señora Blanca you’re my beautiful skinny one
Protect my soul in the underworld
And for eternity to come

For traffickers, thieves and pirates
For the gangsters and kidnappers
Whose evil deeds they gain no grace
From the Holy Roman church
And the victims, poor and desperate
The misfits and prostitutes
Señora Negra is the only one
Whose justice is absolute...

She’s been navigating the darkness
Since the beginning of time
Hiding in the shadows, witnessing many a crime
Crimes that cannot be forgiven
Victims that cannot forgive
She offers us her solace
As from day to day we live...
