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 thinkin'
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 feelin'
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 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 (as they fall)
In the face of reason
Ooh, 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, yeah~

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...

Hey


Yeah~

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...

Yeah

Try to reach inside of me
(Let me show you what I'm made of)
Try to drain my energy
(Let me show you what I'm made of)
Let me show you just
What I'm made of...
