Background Edit

"Made of Stone" is one of the oldest songs written for Evanescence's third album. Amy said in an interview that it was writen two years ago, meaning 2009.[1] In another interview, she said 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.

The song was remixed by Renholdër with "a little help"[2] of Amy for the Underworld: Awakening film. It was played in the film's credits.

The song is one of three songs, along with "Swimming Home" and "Secret Door", that were reworked from the 2010 Steve Lillywhite recording sessions. These sessions were part of the original project of the album, which was more industrial and programming-driven. However, the band's label rejected the material and made the band start again from scratch and make a full-on rock album. That led Amy to feel angry and devastated, making her to make Evanescence's heaviest album. She stated she owns those unfinished recordings and plans to "finish some, re-do and probably keep a couple to myself."[3]

LyricsEdit

Speak your mind, like I care
I can see your lips moving
I've just learned not to hear

Don't waste your time

It's never enough for you, baby
Don't want to play your game anymore
No matter what you say
I'm all out of love for you, baby
And now that I've tried everything
I'll numb the pain 'til I am made of stone

Take your time, I'm not scared
Make me everything you need me to be
So the judgement seems fair

Don't waste your time

It's never enough for you, baby
Don't want to play your game anymore
No matter what you say
I'm all out of love for you, baby
And now that I've tried everything
I'll numb the pain 'til I am made

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

It's never enough for you, baby
Don't want to play your game anymore
No matter what you say
I'm all out of love for you, baby
And now that I've tried everything
I'll numb the pain 'til I am made

I'll numb the pain 'til I am made of stone
