masterpiece theatre i lyrics – marianas trench

first it comes on quiet, creeping slow
clever words and phrases only stain
i remain so lost and buried under everything i need
when all i want it you

i’ve been here so very long
and every word is calculated
never questioned or debated
all these practiced poses
i could wreck it i had to
but i’m the wreck so what would that do?
my masterpiece will fall apart
it was over before the start

if i burn out and slip away
if this is just a part i portray
if this is just a part i portray
you’re beautiful, can i hide in you awhile?
if this is just a part i portray
if this is just a part i portray

they keep mostly to themselves
don’t make a sound incase they hear you
it only hurts me to be near you
keep those tired eyes closed
careful, follow my instruction
and i will show you self-destruction
this masterpiece is only mine
entirely guilty by design

if i burn out and slip away
if this is just a part i portray
if this is just a part i portray
you’re beautiful, can i hide in you awhile?
if this is just a part i portray
can i hide in you awhile?

i just can’t let it, let it out
i just can’t let it out
i just can’t let it, let it out
i just can’t let it out
i just can’t let it, let it out
i just can’t let it out
i just can’t let it, let it out
i just can’t let it out

if this is just a part i portray
you’re beautiful, can i hide in you a while?
you’re beautiful
if this is just a part i portray
if this is just a part i portray
i don’t know how it got this way
