The State of the Stage

Demons in denim emerge from the pit
Blooded in fury and covered in spit
The crosstown promoters don't care a bit
About the stage
(At the state of the stage)
Reverse psychology applied to the mob
Get a haircut that goes with the job
Of finding the keys & twiddling the knobs
On stage
(In the state of the stage)
A constant cause to propose
From the amble to the purposeful pose
In a set of someone else's clothes
From a different age
(As the state of the stage)
Steal the scene while it still exists
The fashion a fusion of catalysts
The manicurist's making fists
At the side of the stage
The episodes of exegesis
On the state of the stage
