Shall Never Surrender is the theme song for Devil May Cry 4. It plays during the game's opening video and in the epilogue. In-game, it plays when Nero is fighting with the enemies. (Except when fighting angels and bosses)

The music was composed by Tetsuya Shibata, and the lyrics were written by Jason "Shyboy" Arnold, who is also responsible for performing the song's vocals.

The artist Bentley Jones was inspired by the song the first time he heard it, and released a cover of the song titled "Devil's Cry (Shall Never Surrender)".[1]

LyricsEdit

The time has come and so have I
I'll laugh last, 'cause you came to die.
The damage done, the pain subsides
And I can see the fear clear when I look in your eye.

I'll never kneel and I'll never rest,

Never Rest

You can tear the heart from my chest.

My Chest

I'll make you see what I do best,
I'll succeed as you breathe your very last breath.

Now I know how the angel fell.

Just kneel

I know the tale and I know it too well.

Just bow

I'll make you wish you had a soul to sell.

Soul to sell

When I strike you down and send you straight to hell.

My army comes from deep within,
Beneath my soul — beneath my skin.
As you're ending, I'm about to begin.
My strength is pain, and I will never give in.

I'll tell you now I'm the one to survive.
You'll never break my faith or my stride.
I'll have you choke on your own demise .
I make the angel scream, and the devil cry.
(The following part is only heard in the credits and briefly in the trailer.)

My honored brethren,

My honored brethren,

We come together

We come together

To unite as one

To unite as one

Against those that are damned.

Against those that are damned.

We show no mercy,

We show no mercy,

For we have none.

For we have none.

Our enemy shall fall

Our enemy shall fall

As we uprise

As we uprise

To claim our fate,

To claim our fate,

Now and forever.

Now and forever.

We'll be together

We'll be together

In love and in hate.

In love and in hate.

They will see, we'll fight until eternity.
Come with me, we'll stand and fight together.
Through our strength, we'll make a better day
Tomorrow, we shall never surrender.

~x4~

We shall never surrender.
