Jackie House : A guy in my choir comes in the room every day and plays this. He's done it since it was released, everyday without fail. The choir director hates it, but we all know the words now.

Lika : it's 3am, i need this to help me sleep

Noah Bradford : he sounds so angry at himself, so tired of what he's becoming. i hope he can be happy one day

DesertDiscussions : *Goosebumps* every fucking time.

Jarl Trippin' : Self loathing: the song.

MyHarto : This song always motivates me.

Shadow : that was more of a panic attack than a song.

Description Untitled : Every single line of this song makes me feel sad. Man, Bo. First time I read that title I thought it was weird, but now I understand his point.

Bitoy Skii : Bo looks and sounds so pissed, I think it's the fact that he expresses himself and each and every time he performs, the audience does nothing but clap or laugh. And he can't do anything about it.

Alyssa : i found it really interesting that he only looks at the audience for the two lines that arent serious

YesReneau : This song helps me sleep at night, too.

StrategicZexal : Day 276: im still finding new shit in this song

Spencer Cale : Ya know, I use to think I was relatively intelligent and witty. That was of course, untill I discovered Bo. His wisdom and insight is far beyond his age. I am humbled by his work. I have so much respect for him.

billny33 : Before he even sings a word. Those opening bars on piano get me every time. It's what a life-altering epiphany should sound like.

Why hi there : "I'm an artist please don't respect me " ... Too late dude . I respect you so much

Applicater92 : He's so arpeggio.

ry : He grew out of it.

Project Beatz : The way he looks at the crowd at 0:11 breaks my heart

Matt Brandt : #Deep

Chaboii Leopold : at first I thought he said 44 nights and was like “well that’s not THAT much, right?” but then I realized he said 40 FORTNIGHTS (two weeks) which is like one and a half years, so...

Musical Comedy : I. LOVE. THIS. SONG.

Ren Amamiya : I have a feeling the kid he references in the beginning is actually him

Just A dude : “And maybe I’ll grow out of it.” and he did.

boryavasili : This song has him asking to not revere or respect him, but the feeling behind this song makes me want to respect and revere him. My emotions ain't used to getting played this hard!

The Passionly Passionate Nightman : Hollywood needs this song drilled into their skulls

Amelia Tuiletufuga : [LYRICS:] (SPOKEN) This song isn't funny at all, but it helps me sleep at night. (SUNG) Art is dead... Art is dead... Art is dead... Art is dead... Entertainers like to seem complicated, but we're not complicated. I can explain it pretty easily - Have you ever been to a birthday party for children, And one of the children won't stop screaming? 'Cause he's just a little attention attractor. When he grows up to be a comic or actor, He'll be rewarded for never maturing, For never understanding or learning, That everyday can't be about him There are other people, you selfish ------. I must be psychotic, I must be demented To think that I'm worthy of all this attention. Of all of this money you worked really hard for. I slept in late while you worked at the drugstore. My drug's attention, I am an addict! But I get paid to indulge in my habit! It's all an illusion, I'm wearing make-up! I'm wearing make-up, make-up, make-up, make-up... Art is dead - so people think you're funny, How do we get those people's money? I said, art is dead - we're rolling in dough while Carlin rolls in his grave, in his grave, in his grave... I said, the show has got a budget. The show has got a budget. And all the poor people way more deserving Of the money won't budge it. 'Cause I wanted my name in lights, When I could have fed a family of four For forty ----ing fortnights, forty ----ing fortnights. I am an artist, please, God, forgive me. I am an artist, please don't revere me. I am an artist, please don't respect me. I am an artist, feel free to correct me. A self-centered artist, self-obsessed artist! I am an artist, I am an artist! But I'm just a kid, I'm just a kid, kid, And maybe I'll grow out of it...

Fenrir : I feel like Bo and George Carlin would be an unstoppable combination.

rileyjayy : if we could tattoo songs into our brains this would be my choice

XAn0nymousX0 : This song only gets more and more true each year it seems. Everywhere I look whether it be a new movie or a new song it's all just garbage. And this song just pops into my head "art is dead".

odobenus159 : Look buddy, I just asked what you do for a living.

ButteredPopcorn : I love his face when he said "All this attention"

Exploration Corner : It looks like he’s just slapping keys and noise comes out! He’s so goood. BO GIVE ME LESSIONS

Shesa The Griffin : 0:38 He looks so angry... It’s like he’s scolding himself, Give this bab a huge. :( (And 1:56 he looks even more broken through out)

Cass Ralph : The fact that he has the heart to admit to his faults. It's deep.

Malaika Tinashe : "My drug is attention I am an addict. But I get paid to indulge in my habits." That hit me hard

Anya Stephenson : The pain in his face omg

Art F1are : This song ironically makes me want to be a comedian like bo. I love how deep and emotional all his songs are while being funny

Tragic Triggers : At 14, watching all these musical bootlegs and humming 'Turn it Off' on the bus to school, I'm scared that I'll turn out like this and I'm scared that I won't.

TreehouseINC : My favorite song ruined by fortnite

Maddie Siegmund : Art is a combination of Absolute Narcissism and Crippling Self-Doubt Bo has got it nailed.

Mathgirly 82 : 1k "artist" who do it for the money saw this video and are in denial.

TheRealBirb : I like his humor but really this is my favorite song by him because of it's realism so that's makes me extremely confused on which I like the songs that make you think about life more than his actually humorous ones. But besides that I think a healthy dose of realism is a little necessary every now and then

Sasha B : "I am an artist, feel free to correct me."

Laila Darry : "And maybe I'll grow out of it" Well, I guess he did

Jessica Stout : "I am an artist, please God, forgive me." Probably one of the best lines he's ever written.

Daniel Lynskey : This song is exposing an act but that act hides within an act within another act

VeonV1 : i love how intense Bo looks when singing for half of this... he's truly one of a kind, he's so self aware and that just adds to his genius

Maura Davis-Shelton : This song makes me want to smile and kill myself at the same time.

victoria : his gasp of air between every line is honestly so attractive for some reason

JoeytheJoeyX3 : Bo, you're always so funny. But this song fucking breaks my heart. Into little tiny pieces that can't be put back together. ... ... ... ... ... Because it's true.
