iiMisxchevious : "I saw a giraffe with a short neck, that was sad or a..deer.."

Disoriented Kiwi : Many people pass off A World On Fire as just a quick comedic sketch, when it is anything but. The screaming is actually complex social commentary that represents the repressiveness of society. It also draws parallels to our brutal personalities which is not actually dissimilar to the fire itself. In the lyrics the tone wavers and fluctuates, representing humanities decline and growth. Bo Burnham has created the most powerful piece of art ever, yet no one else seems to understand. #deep

Høllie S : Bo: "I saw a boy who had red hair." Audience: *Waits for a reason why it was a sad moment* Bo: *Moves onto next lyric*

That was sad, or a deer" "I saw a little boy drop his ice cream cone DIRECTLY ON HIS MOTHER'S CORPSE" "I saw a kitten stuck in a tree, then the kitten jumped out and he hung himself" "Being a comedian isn't being an insensitive prick capitalizing on the most animalistic impulses of the public, it's being a hero" "The world's not sad, the world's funny. I'm a sociopath!" *And my personal favorite...* "The holocaust and 91, that shit's funny 24/7"

Red : (It's about how sad I am. And I'm really sad, so it's called "Sad" It's about all the sad stuff Just picture a depressed onion cutting itself.) I met a homeless man named Rich (He wasn't) Isn't that terrible? I saw a flyer for a lost dog and the dog didn't have any legs I saw a diabetic kid trick-or-treating I saw a giraffe who had a short neck That was sad or a deer I saw an old man get hit by a train He didn't see it in the pouring rain He didn't hear me shout, "Look out for the train!" 'Cause I didn't say anything I just thought to myself, "Oh, this is gonna be sad." And it was, I'm a genius I saw a man with only one eye in a 3D movie I saw a little boy drop his ice cream cone directly on his mother's corpse I saw a kitten stuck in a tree then the kitten jumped off and he hung itself I saw a boy who had red hair I went to a store looking for something to buy But they only sold paintings of the same sad guy No, wait—this store sells mirrors See what I did there? Let's rock No The world's so sad bros Pain, war, genocide, racism, sexism But I gotta remember there's good things about it too Like the fact that none of that's happening to me, score! Still though it's hard not to be sad about it How do y'all do it? I've been telling you, guys, terribly sad things this whole song. You haven't been sad at all You've been happy, no. You've been laughing That's it, laughter, it's the key to everything It's the way to solve all the sadness in the world I mean, not for the people that are actually sad, but for the people like us who've gotta fucking deal with 'em all the time Being a comedian isn't being an insensitive prick capitalizing on the most animalistic impulses of the public, it's being a hero! The world isn't sad. The world's funny! I get it now! I'm a sociopath! I saw an old man slip and fall. Hey, what a fucking idiot I saw a woman at her daughter's funeral. Ha ha ha! Classic comedy! Everything that once was sad is somehow funny now The Holocaust and 9/11 That shit's funny 24/7 'Cause tragedy will be exclusively joked about, Because my empathy is bumming me out Goodbye, sadness! Hello, jokes.

Alanah Sherer : "I say a woman at her daughter's funeral.... Hahaha classic comedy.."

Super_Sweet : "I saw a boy who had red hair...." *audience waits for more.* *piano keeps playing.* *everyone freakin dies of laughter because: gingers* Thank you Bo Burnham

The Wilson Team : A world on fire is truly an amazing piece of art. Bo Burnham sings it so well and beautifully, first of the lyrics are amazing and deep, "AAAUGH AUUGH" it's about people on fire, and it's actually realistic truly beautiful. I can listen to it all day and night, I can even use it as a lullaby. A world on fire can be used for doing anything, even just to listen to it, it's that wonderful. I applaud you, Bo Burnham, for showing us all the true meaning of life.
