This page contains lyrics from the album
"Masterpiece Theatre" by Marianas Trench, which was released in 2009 and consists of 12 songs.
In the house I grew up in
My room in the basement
The hours turning
To years we've spent
Remember Chris in the back yard
Laughing so damn hard
And no one knew why
But the rest is forgotten
All To Myself
I don't patronize
I'm losing and this is my real life
I'm half asleep
And I am wide awake
This habit is always so hard to break
I don't want to be the bad guy
I've been blaming myself and I think you know why
I'm killing time (I'm killing time),
And time's killing you every way that I do
When your tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.
When it's in your spine like you've walked for miles
And the only thing you want is just to be still for a while
Oh way oh way oh oooo
Oh way oh way oh oooo
If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I look around, round, look around and look it over,
I take it up- up, take it out and, take you nowhere,
Trading in who I've been for shiny celebrity skin
I like to push it and, push it until my luck is over.
It never stop stops, never stops, well you better,
Think it over prima donna you don't want to sever,
All the work to impress, charming girls out of their dresses,
And smiling pretty, well pretty will swallow you forever
Step one, step two, step three repeat
Cross My Heart
So here's another day
I'll spend away from you
I'm on another broken avenue
My bag is ripped and worn
Then again then now so am I...
Take what you wanna take
What you wanna take
I miss the stupid things
Good To You
No words are coming out
And I can't find my breath, can we just say the rest with no sound?
And none of this is enough
I still don't measure up
And I'm not prepared, sorry is never there when you need it
And now I do, want you to know I hold you up above everyone
And I do, want you to know I think you'd be good to me and I'd be so good to you
This place is a hole, and I don't want to go.
I wish we could stay here forever alone.
This time that we waste, but I still love your taste.
Don't let him take my place, don't just sit there.
Sometimes I wish you would leave me.
Whoa, I'm not sick of you yet, is that as good as it gets,
I'll just hide it, or I could slip into you,
It's so easy to come back into you.
I stared for awhile, and waited for words,
Masterpiece Theatre I
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
Masterpiece Theatre II
I will softly pull away
In this broken beautiful mess I've made
And in the dead and quiet I will slowly fade
In this masterpiece I made
I'll burn out and slip away
And this just a part I portray
You're beautiful, can I hide in you and stay here?
Making mostly to themselves
Masterpiece Theatre III
I've got a new disease in me,
I've got a friend that's losing sleep,
I take it hard, it's hard to take, I'm wide awake.
One more confession, discretion's not what I need to sell,
I never needed a reason for keeping secrets from myself and now
That's just how I tell I'm wide-awake
I'll wreck this if I have to tell me what good would
That do I'll wreck this if I have to
You get separated, somebody's gone,
Please sing to me,
I can see you open up to breathe.
Fast words make it easier on me,
If the points to never disappoint you,
Somebody's got to tell me what to do
I just wish you could have seen me
When it used to come so easy.
I'd like to say that it's easy to stay
But it's not for me,
Cause I'm barely here at all.
Can I have your attention, Ohh- ohh ohh- ohh- ohhhhh
I just opened my mouth
Is it clear
Is it loud for you
You just need me to be stable
But I won't be able
To keep it together again
Now don't pretty please me
You're not making it easy, to slow me down
