Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat” Music Video Further Proves Mockingjay’s Awesome

By  | 

Lorde‘s “Yellow Flicker Beat” music video is EPIC (as if you didn’t already suspect that that would be the case). After releasing the song from the soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 over a month ago, as well as a couple other tracks, including “This is Not a Game” (with The Chemical Brothers and Miguel), Lorde finally dropped the MV, and with very little time to spare. Mockingjay hits theaters next week!

Watch the music video above, catch the lyrics below and make sure to see the Jennifer Lawrence-led flick on Friday, November 21!



I’m a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm
And the scars that mark my body, they’re silver and gold
My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones
It keeps my veins hot, the fire’s found a home in me
I move through town, I’m quiet like a fight
And my necklace is of rope, I tie it and untie

And now people talk to me, but nothing ever hits home
People talk to me, and all the voices just burn holes
I’m done with it (ooh)

[CHORUS]
This is the start of how it all ends
They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
I’m speeding up and this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
We’re at the start, the colors disappear
I never watch the stars, there’s so much down here
So I just try to keep up with the red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart



I dream all year, but they’re not the sweet kinds
And the shivers move down my shoulder blades in double time

And now people talk to me, I’m slipping out of reach now
People talk to me, and all their faces blur
But I got my fingers laced together and I made a little prison
And I’m locking up everyone who ever laid a finger on me
I’m done with it (ooh)

[CHORUS]



And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat-beat-beat-beat
