Mitski – Working for the Knife Lyrics

Mitski Working for the Knife Lyrics, Working for the Knife Lyrics by Mitski

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

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

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

I used to think I’d be done by 20
Now at 29 the road ahead appears the same
Though maybe at 30 I’ll see a way to change
That I’m living for the knife

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
