What I'm Made Of... is a song by the band Crush 40, which appeared in the SEGA game Sonic Heroes. The song was used for the final boss battle in the game against Metal Overlord. The song is one of two Crush 40 songs in the game, the other being the much more upbeat main title song, Sonic Heroes.

The track was originally composed by Jun Senoue as the main theme of the game, but was rejected as the development team wanted a song that was more upbeat, which lead to the creation of the final main theme of the game Sonic Heroes (song).

What I'm Made Of... marked the beginning of a darker Crush 40 sound, a sound that would appear again in the next Sonic-related game, Shadow The Hedgehog, in the shape of the song I Am... All Of Me.

A demo version of the song was leaked on the internet months before the game's release that featured early instrumental work and a rough draft of the song's chorus.

The song also appears on the True Blue compilation album in a slightly modified form: the vocals have been re-recorded (with the only major change being slightly longer sustaining of the line "is it me you say you're looking for"), and the position of the drums in the stereo mix have shifted.

Lyrics

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 (set me free)
I can 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...

Hey!

Try to reach inside of me
Try to take 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 (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 (is it me),
You say (you say),
You're looking for?
Let me show you who I am
And what I have in store...
In store...

Hey hey yeaaah

Try to reach inside of me
Try to take 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...

Hey!

(Guitar solo)

Yeah!

Try to reach inside of me
Try to take 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...

Try to reach inside of me (lemme show you what I'm made of)
Try to take my energy (lemme show you what I'm made of)
Let me show you just
WHAT I'M MADE OF...
