Lyrics
L'Via
Hija de Miranda,
Tu Apellido se cambió
L'Via
Sin ojos me quieres dar
Una historia sin mi madre
Sólo tengo que decirte
El dolor de noche dice
Sólo se quedo el vestido
Le lavé la sangre

L'Via
No dejes de descansar
En la calle caminas
¿Quién te va a perseguir?
L'Via
Te quieren matar
Dientes de Machete
Cabeza de gallo
L'Via
Durmiendo en paz
Abre los ojos,
Todo cambiará
L'Via
Soñando de venganza
Y yo te juro
Lo van a pagar

Blackmailed, she fell off every mountain
The ones they tightly wrapped in tape
In her eraser sang the guilty
As it made the best mistakes
And with everybody that I find
And with every claymore that they mine
I won't forget who I'm looking for
Oh mother help me I'm looking for

L'Via
Hija de Miranda,
Tu apellido se cambió
L'Via
Sin ojos me quieres dar
Una historia sin mi madre
Sólo tengo que decirte
El dolor de noche dice
Sólo se quedo el vestido
Le lavé la sangre

Blackmailed, she fell off every mountain
The ones they tightly wrapped in tape
In her eraser sang the guilty
As it made the best mistakes
And with everybody that I find
And with every claymore that they mine
I won't forget who I'm looking for
Oh mother help me I'm looking for

Sólo tengo
Una hora
Y me duermo
Terminado
Por veinticinco
Años pasaron
Siguen los cuerpos
Aquí temblando

Tomé la sangre,
Comí el cuerpo,
Mis lágrimas
Quiebra un espejo

When all the worms come
Crawlin out of your head
Telling you
Don't be afraid
When all the worms come
Crawlin out of your head
Telling you
Don't be afraid
Blackmailed she fell off every mountain
The ones they tightly wrapped in tape
In her eraser sang the guilty
As it made the best mistakes
Shark kites got tangled in the moleskin
Urgent plea of escape
A mouth to mouth on the chalkboard
Written in fingernail distaste
And with everybody that I find
And with every claymore that they mine
I won't forget who I'm looking for
Oh mother help me I'm looking for
