Mi cenicero, mi cenicero
Mi corazon de cenicero

You are the burden to our ways
You are the one who took my place
You took a jump into forever
A leap of faith I could not take

And it was
A leap of faith I could not take
A promise that I could not make
A leap of faith I could not take
A promise that I could not make

Mi cenicero, mi cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi corazon de cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi cenicero, mi cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi corazon de cenicero

You were alone before we met
No more forlorn than one could get
How could we know we had found treasure?
How sinister and how correct

And it was
A leap of faith I could not take
A promise that I could not make
A leap of faith I could not take
A promise that I could not make

Mi cenicero, mi cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi corazon de cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi cenicero, mi cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi corazon de cenicero

Mi cenicero, mi cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi corazon de cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi cenicero, mi cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi corazon de cenicero

I tore the muscle from your chest
And used it to stub out cigarettes
I listened to your screams of pleasure
Now watch the bedsheets turn blood red

Mi cenicero, mi cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi corazon de cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi cenicero, mi cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi corazon de cenicero

Mi cenicero, mi cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi corazon de cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi cenicero, mi cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi corazon de cenicero

    My Interpretation'You are the burden to our ways' refers to the protagonist's partner who ruined what they had by falling in love with him/her: 'You took a jump into forever. A leap of faith I could not take'.

    He didn't want her to because he was just using her for satisfying his sexual needs. And for a time they had something nice 'We have found treasure?', but ultimately he understands in the end that she was in love with him long before he noticed and he recognizes what he did to her: 'I tore the muscle from your chest. And used it to stub out cigarettes'.

    He still feels somehow attached to her calling her his ashtray heart in English and in Spanish.

    And I think he's somehow sorry but trying to comfort her by calling her his ashtray heart over and over again.

    And I don't know if the last line 'Now watch the bedsheets turn blood red' refers to someone having committed suicide because they couldn't live with the truth that the love they had for the protagonist wasn't shared.
