pronounced: La Ven-juh-nista
La Vengenista is a fictional character I created for this song. She travels to Mexico to seek vengeance against those who killed her lover, Anhelo.


With my tin skeleton
And a brand new ghost
I set sail for you on the Mexican coast
I had demons all wrapped up in my hair
I had angels armed to the teeth around me everywhere
I was wind, I was dust, I was fire
No, they could not hold me back
But lord, they tried
The birds rose and sang your name to the night
I went to the mountain I raised up my hands and I cried
"Anhelo, Anhelo, my lover my soul
I will find out where they buried you
And I will take you home"
When I left the town lit the sky
You have never seen flames rise so high
No, you have never seen flames rise so high.....
