about

The song “Say No To Art” is an ironic synth rock song about one of the worst drugs in the world: art. The lyrics describe art as a meaningless endeavour and make fun of the quasi-addicted art consumers and producers. The creative aspirations of art production then present themselves as just a great waste of time. Dodo Origami's piano player Christoph hopes that in the light of the fact that his art-mocking song itself is a piece of art everyone will understand the irony.

lyrics

What is art about
I can’t spot the meaning
Staring at your pictures
Listening to your music

What is art about
I can’t spot the meaning
It is just a great waste of time
In their room alone
People spend their whole life
Searchin’ for the best fitting rhyme
Art will never do it better
Better than la la la la la
La la la la la
Just say no to art
Just say no to art
What is art about
I can’t spot the meaning

What is art about
I can’t spot the meaning
Just a stupid outgrowth
Of livin’ in affluence

What is art about
I can’t spot the meaning
It is just a great waste of time
In their room alone
People spend their whole life
Searchin’ for the best fitting rhyme
Art will never do it better
Better than la la la la la
La la la la la
Just say no to art
Just say Just say Just say Just say

Baby, b-b-b-baby baby
Baby, b-b-b-baby you’re addicted
Baby, b-b-b-baby baby
Baby, b-b-b-baby you’re addicted

What is art about
I can’t spot the meaning
It is just a great waste of time (great waste of time)
In their room alone
People spend their whole life
Searchin’ for the best fitting rhyme (great waste of time)
Art will never do it better
Better than la la la la la
La la la la la
Just say no to art
Just say no to art

Art will never do it better
Better than la la la la la
La la la la la
Just say no to art
Just say no to art

What is art about
I can’t spot the meaning
