General Information

Written by: A. Lee, T. Balsamo, T. McCord, T. McLawhorn, W. Hunt and W. B. Hunt

The 2nd track on Evanescence's self-titled album. The piano solo featured during the bridge is the same song Amy played in the "Meanwhile... in the studio" video she posted on her Twitter account in May 11th, 2011.[1] The title of the song was first revealed in a video on MTV News in which it's seen on the songs board in the studio.[2]

In an interview on July, 2011, Amy said that the song was composed two years ago (meaning 2009):

Vin1.jpg Made of Stone, it's a song in this record that I composed two years ago, and it's really cool to see how it has evolved in sound and lyrics until arriving to this disc. It sounds so cool.[3] Vin2.jpg


Amy said in an interview with QQ that she wrote the song with her programmer friend, Will "Science" Hunt. She said they were writing a few songs together when hanging out, and she stated that the original version of the song was very electronic and very different, because when she writes demos and records demos at her house, there's no guitars, and it's "all sorts" of "sound and keyboards and stuff." And after having the song for a year and a half, the band came into it, and it gave the song a "huge power." She said it changed a lot from its original version, and she thinks that the song is very strong and confident.[4]

In a track-by-track interview with NME.com, Amy Lee talked about the song saying:

Vin1.jpg This is one of the oldest songs, this is something that was from that sort of more electronic phase that I was going through, a couple years ago. I love this one, I feel like it's strong and defiant and badass and it only got better when the band started really being involved in it and writing that guitar part and everything about it. I feel like it popped up in a big way when the guys got involved. But I've always loved that one, I think it has a very cool, dark, sexy quality.[5] Vin2.jpg


When answering fan questions from Twitter, Amy said that Made of Stone is one of the oldest songs on the record, and that the most work went into it, because it went through many phases:

Vin1.jpg Made of Stone is the second track on the album, and I think it's definitely one of the oldest ones that we have. I don't know if I'd say it was a challenge to make, but I think the most work maybe went into it, just because it went through so many different phases. At first it was a very different style song, with no guitars and a lot of programing and interesting stuff and, yeah, went through a couple of different phases, worked on it with the band and the guys came up with some amazing guitar and drum and bass work and it turned into this completely other thing, and I think it's pretty cool now, I think it finally found its home where it is, so, yeah.[6] Vin2.jpg

Lyrics

Speak your mind
like I care (care)
I can see your lips moving
I've just learned not to hear (hear)
Don't waste your time

It's never enough for you, baby (Never enough for you, baby)
Don't want to play your game (Don’t want to play your, oooo oooo oooo) anymore (anymore; never enough for you, baby)
no matter what you say (no matter what you say)
I'm all out of love for you, baby (I'm all out of love for you, baby)
and now that I've tried everything (I've tried everything)
I'll numb the pain till I am made of stone (till I am made of stone)

Take your time (time)
I'm not scared (scared)
Make me everything you need me to be (everything you need me to be)
so the judgement seems fair (so the judgement seems fair)
Don't waste your time (time)

It's never enough for you, baby (never enough for you, baby)
Don't want to play your game (Don’t want to play your, oooo oooo oooo) anymore (anymore; never enough for you, baby)
no matter what you say (no matter what you say)
I'm all out of love for you, baby (I'm all out of love for you, baby)
and now that I've tried everything (I've tried everything)
I'll numb the pain till I am made

to tear out my heart
for the way that it feels
I will still remember when you've long (remember when you’ve long) forgotten me (forgotten me)

It's never enough for you, baby (never enough for you, baby)
Don't want to play your game (Don’t want to play your, oooo oooo oooo) anymore (anymore; never enough for you, baby)
no matter what you say (no matter what you say)
I'm all out of love for you, baby (I’m all out of love for you, baby; OOOOOOOOOO)
and now that I've tried everything (I've tried everything)
I'll numb the pain till I am made of stone

It's never enough (I'm not gonna play)
It's never enough (a game)
It's never enough
I'll numb the pain till I am made of stone (Haaaaah aaaahhhhhh)
I'll numb the pain till I am made of stone (stone)
