"Devil May Cry" as written by and Jason Matthew Quenneville Abel Tesfaye....
It won't be in vain
To swallow all your pain
And learn to love what burns
And gather courage to return

Faces in the crowd
Faces in the crowd will smile again
And the devil may cry
The devil may cry at the end of the night

Faces in the crowd
Faces in the crowd will smile again
And the devil may cry
The devil may cry at the end of the night

The light will shine through the rain
And heaven will hear them call your name
And home will feel like home again
Corruption will fill your brain

Faces in the crowd
Faces in the crowd will smile again
And the devil may cry
The devil may cry at the end of the night

Faces in the crowd
Faces in the crowd will smile again
And the devil may cry
The devil may cry at the end of the night

They will parade upon your victory
They will parade upon your victory
You'll put a smile upon their faces
The world will be yours for the taking
The story you birth will be ageless
Just learn to love pain and be patient

Faces in the crowd
Faces in the crowd will smile again
And the devil may cry
The devil may cry at the end of the night

Faces in the crowd
Faces in the crowd will smile again
And the devil may cry
The devil may cry at the end of the night

    Song MeaningIt won't be in vain
    To swallow all your pain
    And learn to love what burns
    And gather courage to return

    Katniss's heart is filled with pain at this point. Almost everything she loves has been soiled by the Capitol, and hundreds, if not thousands of lives have been destroyed. And now, although she doesn't want to be a hero, she has no choice but to be the Mockingjay. She has to swallow her pain now and be strong in order to fight back, and in order to give the people of Panem something to fight for and believe in.

    Faces in the crowd
    Faces in the crowd will smile again
    And the devil may cry
    The devil may cry at the end of the night

    The faces in the crowd are the faces of those in the Districts. Right now, times are hard, but one day they will smile again. They believe that the chances of that happening are higher now more than ever, because Katniss gives them hope that a better tomorrow is possible. The devil is President Snow; and when the dust settles and his kingdom falls, he will weep. Of course, we all know what really happens, but I'm speaking from the lyrics.

    The light will shine through the rain
    And heaven will hear them call your name
    And home will feel like home again
    Corruption will fill your brain

    Katniss is the light shining through the rain. She is Panem's beacon of hope. Although the poison of the Capitol may try to corrupt her, she will shine through and maybe one day, home will feel like home again.

    They will parade upon your victory
    They will parade upon your victory
    You'll put a smile upon their faces
    The world will be yours for the taking
    The story you birth will be ageless
    Just learn to love pain and be patient

    Katniss's victory will be an even greater driving force for Panem. She'll forever be a priceless piece of history once they overtake the Capitol and win back their lives. As for now, though, she has to patient because it won't happen overnight.

    Not only do the lyrics represent the series perfectly, the music itself also summarizes how Katniss's spark caught fire across the Districts. As the song progresses, the music grows stronger and stronger until it sounds like an entire chorus of people singing together. It represents the fire catching and spreading until it is a blazing flame, similar to the spirit and the unity of the people of Panem. It really shows the power that one outspoken voice can have over an entire nation.
