Shall Never Surrender is the theme song for Devil May Cry 4. It plays during the game's opening video and in the epilogue. An edited-down looped version named in the soundtrack as "The Time Has Come" serves as Nero's primary battle theme.
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.
We shall never surrender.
- In July 2011, Bentley Jones released a cover of this song.
