Marianas Trench - Masterpiece Theatre I lyrics

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

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?

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 in case they hear you
It only hurts me to be near you
Keep those tired eyes closed careful
Follow my instructions
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
If this is just a part I portray (can I hide in you awhile?)

I just can’t let it, let it out
Oh, I just can’t let it out
I just can’t let it, let it out
Oh, I just can’t let it out
I just can’t let it, let it out
Oh, I just can’t let it out
I just can’t let it, let it out
Oh, I just can’t let it out
If this is just a part I portray
You’re beautiful; can I hide in you awhile?
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
