Masterpiece Theatre I

Marianas Trench

Masterpiece Theatre I Lyrics

[Intro]
First it comes on quiet, creeping slow
Clever words and phrases only stain

I remain so
Lost and buried under everything that I need
When all I want is you


[Verse 1]
I've been here so very long
And every word is calculated
Never questioned or debated

All these practiced poses
I could wreck it if I had to
But I'm the wreck so what would that do?


[Pre-Chorus 1]
My masterpiece will fall apart
It was over before the start


[Chorus]
If I burn out and slip away
But this is just a part I portray
And this is just a part I portray

You're beautiful, can I hide in you a while?
But this is just a part I portray
And this is just a part I portray


[Verse 2]
They keep mostly to themselves
Don't make a sound in case 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


[Pre-Chorus 2]
This masterpiece is only mine
Entirely guilty by design

[Chorus]
If I burn out and slip away
But this is just a part I portray
And this is just a part I portray
You're beautiful, can I hide in you a while?
But this is just a part I portray
Can I hide in you awhile?

[Bridge]
I just can't let it, let it out
No, I just can't let it out
I just can't let it, let it out
No, I just can't let it out
I just can't let it, let it out
No, I just can't let it out
I just can't let it, let it out
No, I just can't let it out


[Outro]
But 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

About “Masterpiece Theatre I”

This song was the first version of a summary/compilation song to act as the culmination of Marianas Trench’s second album, Masterpiece Theatre. “Masterpiece Theatre II” and “Masterpiece Theatre III” are other versions of this culminating piece. Josh Ramsay was unable to decide on just one, and instead included all three on the album.

This first version is a sort of melancholy, longing song, sung from the perspective of someone in a dark place.
