Devils Never Cry is the theme song from Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening. Parts of it can be heard throughout the game, such as when Dante runs down the side of the Temen-ni-gru, and the song's main theme can be heard within other tracks, most obviously in the "Divinity Statue" track; however, the full song is only played during the end credits, the demo movie, and the bonus motion capture video. As shown in the Devil May Cry 3 manga, the song itself exists within the canon; it plays when Dante turns on his jukebox, and again at the bar where Lady takes Alice.

The track was composed by Tetsuya Shibata, as well as written/perfromed by Shawn "Shootie HG" McPherson of Hostile Groove. The light vocals were performed by David Allen Baker. The song's full lyrics and the sheet music for the intro were also made available on Shootie HG's site. The song was released with the Devil May Cry 3 Original Soundtrack (released on March 31, 2005), as well as with Dangerous Hits (October 9, 2006).[1]

Clear Lyrics Demonic Lyrics
Steel a soul for a second chance,
But you will never become a man,
My chosen torture makes me stronger,
In a life that craves the hunger,
A Freedom, and a quest for life,
Until the end of Judgment Night,

Bless me with your gift of light,
Righteous cause, on Judgment Night,
Feel the sorrow the light has swallowed,
Feel the freedom like no tomorrow,

Stepping forth, a cure for a soul's demise,
Reap the tears of the victim's cries,
Yearning more to hear the suffer (of a),
Of a demon as I put it under,

Killed before a time to kill them all,
Passed down the righteous law,
Serve a justice that dwells in me,
Lifeless corpse as far as the eye can see!

The eye can see!
The eye can see!
The eye can see,
The eye can see!
The eye can see,
Bless me, with the,
Leaf off of the tree,
On it, I see,
The freedom reign,

We are, falling,
The light is calling,
Tears inside me,
Calm me down,

Midnight, calling,
Mist of resolving,
Crown me, with the,
Pure green leaf,

Praise to my father, Life of vengeance, a passive test,
Blessed by the water, Until the grave, I will rest,
Black night, dark sky, Engage the pressure until it crumbles,
The devil's cry, The existence of lifeless black souls,

Bless me, with the, Onward, to the sacred battlefield,
Leaf off of the tree, Where justification and limits, are revealed,
On it, I see, Tools of steel, in rage they conquer,
The freedom reign, Weed out, the killing of victim's stalker,

We are falling, The powers proven to end the madness,
The light is calling, Upon I, take it to end the savage,
Tears inside me, The rays of light, a truth of meaning,
Calm me down, To my father, the blood is pleading,

Midnight, calling, A justice rage, for all to feel,
Mist of resolving, With innocent cries, and hatred squeals,
Crown me, with the, The gore of evil seems to satisfy,
Pure green leaf, When slain, and maimed, and pacified,

Bless me, with the, My chosen torture makes me stronger,
Leaf off of the tree, In a life that craves the hunger,
On it, I see, A Freedom and a quest for life,
The freedom reign, Until the end of Judgment Night,

Praise to my father, Watch the footsteps, but never follow,
Blessed by the water, If you want to live tomorrow,
Black night, dark sky, Steal a soul for a second chance,
The devils cry. But you will never become a man.

Other appearancesEdit

DmC: Devil May CryEdit

Completing the game on Dante Must Die difficulty earns the player the "Devils Never Cry" award.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3Edit

A remixed version of this song is used as Dante's theme for Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and its updated version, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Pieces and Renditions of the song also appear in Vergil's Theme for both games.

Marvel vs. Capcom: InfiniteEdit

In this game, Devils Never Cry has a more trimmed style to the lyrics and the song is much more synthesized than the previous metal versions. Also, the clear vocals are now autotuned to reflect on the storyline of Ultron and Dante's demonic form (which the voice is also pretty technological), and the menacing voice is now more vicious with the angry shouts.
