Masterpiece Theatre Part I

Masterpiece Theatre Part I
by Marianas Trench

When I was a kid you couldn’t get me to stop singing The Beatles and Queen. So much that I actually got in trouble a fair amount for singing in class, even on field trips…I just wouldn’t shut up ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think that maybe people had a clue then. Here I am decades later and still practicing songs when I know no one listens ๐Ÿ˜‰ Every time I hear this song play I get that same sly grin I had in those days long ago when I was about to start singing regardless of who was listening…or anyone who didn’t want to hear it ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s so funny because my best friend’s kid is just like that too and I’m not allowed to tell him I would get in loads of trouble for singing all the time.

First it comes on quiet creeping slow.
Clever words and phrases always 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 practised 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 and
this is just a part I portray
You’re beautiful can I hide in you awhile.
but this is just a part I portray
and 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 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 and
this is just the 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.

I just can’t let, let it out
oh I just can’t let it out
I just can’t let, let it out
oh I just can’t let it out
I just can’t let, 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 just a part I portray,
if this is just a part I portray,
I don’t know how it got this way




A thing of beauty…

Heh…well..to me anyhow.

I am not very big on autographs or getting my picture taken with famous people.

BUT.

For some reason I dig the hell out of books my Robert Jordan that have been signed. When Mr. Rigney left us, I cried. Not only because his masterpiece series The Wheel of Time was not yet complete, but because my stupid obsession with getting autographed copies of his work was at an end, Without a profound sense of being incomplete…I stopped rereading the books. Weird eh?

Once I knew the 12th book The Gathering Storm was in publication, it was only a few days before I found this…and today it was finally delivered.

Look, I know that it isn’t really RJ’s signature, but Brandon Sanderson’s IS, and seeing their scribbles next to each other made my crazy ass sane again ๐Ÿ˜‰
