Stream/buy –

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

    She really came back and dropped a whole film scene as a music video… Nobody is doing it like her

    Mitski is one of the most talented artists, she is so underrated for her work

  6. Ned Mononymous says:

    Mitski has an uncanny ability to release music whenever I’m about to be homeless again.

    My first concert was Mitski. My first tattoo was a pearl, for her. I’ve been having a hard time at college trying to find motivation. But seeing Mitski dancing, expressing herself this way. It’s the reminder I needed that I can express myself however I want, I am in control of myself, and I am going to be okay. This is what I’ve been waiting for. Everything is good now.

    Literally nobody is doing it like mitski. So happy she’s back

  9. noah e says:

    It’s interesting how when she was on the stage at the end, the clapping only happened while she was seemingly struggling with internal pain, but the moment the dance turned outwardly violent the claps stopped
