I look at it in terms of saccharine.

Cypher came to realize he was living in some crapsaccharine world and hated the idea that he was living some delusion, and wanted to get out. The truth, no matter what it was, was likely more important. Likewise, he was probably a lot younger(Neo was past the standard no-go for free age) and more naive as to the effort that the saccharine puts in to hide the truth of the world.

Now "free" he found that the crap that the saccharine flavored wasn't worth it. He preferred things that were pleasing to the mind. He wanted that saccharine back in all it's glory, and now older, he wanted to not know about what was covered up. Hence why he specifically asked to remember nothing at all.

What he didn't know, was that he was simply being used as part of the over all system to help push Neo to his point of enlightenment. His desire to regain the saccharine, actually brought out the true sugar flavorings in Neo and his purpose, to show that the truth wasn't so bad.
