About Made of Stone

"Made of Stone" is a single from The Stone Roses' eponymous debut album. The band made their début on national British TV by performing this song on the BBC's The Late Show in September 1989. A minute into the song, the power went out, prompting lead singer Ian Brown to walk off stage, cursing the venue. The song has seen use in the 1997 American film, Heaven or Vegas and in the PSP 2005 videogame World Tour Soccer. The B-side of "Made of Stone", "Going Down", references Jackson Pollock's No. 5, 1948. Pollock's paintings influenced the cover art that guitarist John Squire made for the single and the album. The 12" vinyl's B-side "Guernica" is "Made of Stone" in reverse and with dubbed-over, seemingly unrelated lyrics which, in the same vein as "Don't Stop" from their debut album, bear resemblance to the lyrics of Made of Stone when played in reverse.

Your knuckles whiten on the wheel
The last thing that your hands will feel
Your final flight can't be delayed

No earth, just sky it's so surreal
Your pink fat lips let go a scream
You fry and melt I love the scene

Sometimes I fantasize
When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Don't these times fill your eyes

When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Are you all alone
Is anybody home?

I'm standing warm against the cold
Now that the flames have taken hold
At least you left your life in style

And for far as I can see
Ten twisted grills grin back at me
Bad money dies I love the scene

Sometimes I fantasize
When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Don't these times fill your eyes

When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Are you all alone
Is anybody home?

Sometimes I fantasize
When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Don't these times fill your eyes

When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Are you all alone
Are you made of stone?
