Working for the Knife - Mitski 「Lyrics」

I cry at the start of every movie
I guess 'cause I wish I was making things, too
But I'm working for the knife


Working for the Knife - Mitski 「Lyrics」

I cry at the start of every movie
I guess 'cause I wish I was making things, too
But I'm working for the knife

[Verse 2]
I used to think I would tell stories
But nobody cared for the stories I had about
No good guys

[Verse 3]
I always knew the world moves on
I just didn't know it would go without me
I start the day high and it ends so low


Cause I'm working for the knife

[Verse 4]
I used to think I'd be done by twenty
Now at twenty-nine, the road ahead appears the same
Though maybe at thirty, I'll see a way to change
That I'm living for the knife

[Verse 5]
I always thought the choice was mine
And I was right, but I just chose wrong
I start the day lying and end with the truth
That I'm dying for the knife
