hold steady.

They queue up for tickets to see the performance
They push to get closer, looking upwards with wonder
We are the actors, the cameras are rolling
I'll be Ben Gazzara, you'll be Gena Rowlands

Sometimes actresses get slapped
Sometimes fake fights turn out bad

Some nights making it look real
Might end up with someone hurt
Some nights it's just entertainment
And some other nights, it's work.

They come in for the feeding, sit in stadium seating
They're holding their hands out for the body and blood now
We're the directors, our hands will hold steady
I'll be John Cassavettes. Let me know when you're ready.
