Working For The Knife

  • 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 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

    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 Writer/s: Mitsuki Laycock
