Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I prefure capo 3, but play with it. see what feels right


Em           C
Art is dead, art is dead
G            D
Art is dead, art is dead

Em                              C   
Entertainers like to seem complicated
                    G
But we're not complicated
                        D
I can explain it pretty easily

                        Em
Have you ever been to a birthday party for children
               C
And one of the children won't stop screaming
                  G
Cause he's just a little attention attractor
              D
When he grows up to be a comic or actor
          Em
He'll be rewarded for never maturing
          C
For never understanding or learning
           G
That every day can't be about him
              D          
There's other people you selfish asshole

              Em
I must be psychotic, I must be demented
                  C
To think that I'm worthy of all this attention
                G
Of all of this money you worked hard for
           D
I slept in late while you worked at the drug store

          Em
My drug's attention, I am an addict
          C
But I get paid to indulge in my habit
            G
It's all an illusion, I'm wearing make-up
             D
I'm wearing make-up, make-up, make-up, make-up 



Em           C
Art is dead, so people think you're funny

How do you get those people's money?
Em               C
Art is dead, we're rolling in money
                          Em                 C-G-D
While Carlin rolls in his grave, in his grave

Em
this show has got a budget
    C
The show has got a budget
    G                                             D
And all the poor people way more deserving of the money won't budget
        Em
Cause I wanted my name in lights
     C
When I could have fed a family of four
    G                         D
For forty fucking fortnights, forty fucking fortnights

        Em
I am an artist, please god forgive me
        C
I am an artist, people don't revere me
        G
I am an artist, please don't respect me
        D
I am an artist, feel free to correct me
                Em
A self-centered artist, self-obsessed artist
        C
I am an artist, I am an artist

               G                               D
But I'm just a kid, I'm just a kid, I'm just a kid
                                 Em
And maybe I'll grow out of it
