Yellow Flicker Beat Lyrics
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 fires found a home in me.
I move through town, I’m...

In my opinion it talks about her strength,her power to do something about a certain situation where she's put on her limit and can't help but fight back.This also talks about the story of hunger games where the main character is being betrayed by her bestfriend,her bestfriend was about to strangle her because he was brainwashed by the other people.I have also notice that there is a part that says"they shout my name and now they whisper it" it talks about the rebellion and the first part of the series and now they are afraid of her,they are afraid of authority.

I see it as she’s honored and unflinching, built from unnatural sources so has special protections & powers. As she’s awakened and learns how powerful she can be against injustice and evil, they will not be able to stop her.

They used to shout my name now they whisper it.

The song is a great song, talking about how she was in the beginning to how her life started changing. "They used to shout my name now they whisper it" means that they used to shout her name as a sign of the rebellion, now President Snow stopped, thanks to him and the capitol! Hope this helped!

This song is clearly from the interpretation of Katiness Everdeen from The Hunger Games and her struggle in the third book Mockingjay, considering it is from the Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack. The song says "They used to shout my name now they whisper it." This is clearly showing how at the beginning of the books/movies, they all look at her as a signal of the rebellion, but in the last book/last 2 movies, they are all so afraid of authority that they won't even talk about the revolution.
