"What I'm Made of...", written by Jun Senoue and Johnny Gioeli, originally appeared as the final boss theme from "Sonic Heroes" for the Nintendo Gamecube, Microsoft Xbox, and Sony Playstation 2, and also appeared on...
I don't care what you're thinking
As you turn to me
'Cause what I have in my two hands
Is enough to set me free
I could fight the feeling
To resist it over time
But when it's just too much to take
You sneak up from behind

Is it me, you say, you're looking for
Let me show you who I am and what I'm here for... here for...

Try to reach inside of me, try to drain my energy
Let me show you just what I'm made of
Simple curiosity tries to take a bite of me
Let me show you just what I'm made of now...

Like a million faces
I've recognized them all
And one by one they've all become
A number as they fall
In the face of reason
I can't take no more
One by one they've all become
A black mark on the floor

Is it me, you say, you're looking for
Let me show you who I am and what I have in store... in store...

Try to reach inside of me, try to drain my energy
Let me show you just what I'm made of
Simple curiosity tries to take a bite of me
Let me show you just what I'm made of now...

You can take another life-long try
You can take another try...

Try to reach inside of me, try to drain my energy
Let me show you just what I'm made of
Simple curiosity tries to take a bite of me
Let me show you just what I'm made of now...

    General CommentTome this song means that nothing can stop you(in this case sonic and his gang). It also means that if something does get in your way you should just push through and never stop trying.You should never take anything as threat to you, because it isnt. Also, I think crush 40 is even better than the beatles, so ill comment on them a lot.

    General CommentWhen I hear this song, two things go through my head. the first is that it describes how i am . If something tries to stop me, knock it down, and spit in its face. The second is i imagine a mall, or a big crowd, ans i see myself walking through the crowd, not stopping when something tries to stop me and i have a presence in the crowd, and after a while people stop pushing and let me through..

    General CommentThis is the AWESOMEST (yes, I know that's not a word) song EVER, closly followed by Through the Fire and Flames.
    I listen to this song at least 5 times a day, and am planning on downloading it onto RockBand.

    General CommentSing this from a first person view. Its saying "You won't stop me, I'll keep going. I might seem down or mean, but I'm going to go on.".

    General CommentWell I kinda feel the same way as KantoChamp but when i listen to the song i think of something different. I first think that its like I've been messed with long enough and its time to fight back. I also think that its me against like 5 people (It might seem weird but thats how i see it). And the last thing i think is that I feel like i have been losing a fight and when I hear this song things turn better for me and i feel like im starting to win the fight.

    General CommentThis song is basically from the 1st person saying, "Go ahead and try! Nothing can stop me and I'll just plow right through your ass."

    General CommentA few errors that I've spotted here:

    I CARE FOR what you're thinking

    To resist it ALL THE time

    Try to reach inside of me, try to TAKE my energy

    Simple curiosity; TRY to take a bite of me

    I CAN take no more


    These are the lyrics I've seen on other sites.

    General CommentThis song doesn't necessarily denote plowing through enemies or ignoring people to me. It is an example of Ayn Rands (please correct me if I am wrong) selfish ethics system; decisions ought to be made in order of what helps the individual the most. In this case, that would be remaining an individual and not losing yourself to other people, and doing whatever it takes to achieve this. Also, it seems that this song refers to people who are either directly confronting people or that are leeching off of them in some way rather than avoiding any kind of contact at all.

    General CommentWell, I'm quite certain this is metal's theme for sonic heroes, but I could be wrong.
