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
This is just a part I portray.
Can I hide in you awhile

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.
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
This is just a part I portray.
This is just a part I portray.

I just can't let it let it out
I just can't let out
I just can't let it let it out
I just can't let out
I just can't let it let it out
I just can't let out
I just can't let it let it out
I just can't let 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

    To me, masterpiece theatre 1 is about a man who is obsessed with a role he portrays in a show. He is obsessing about this role because he is not happy with his own life. He talks about is his own character and when the audience judges the performance on stage, they are judging him because he wants to be his character and not just portray it. The last line "if this is just a part i portray, i don't know how it got this way" means that he doesn't understand how he got so obsessed with the role.
