This first song is called "A World on Fire"

Owww Ahhhh!

This next song is a little bit longer that that one, and um, it's about all the sad stuff I see in the world and I see a lot of sad stuff and it's called Sad.

Get on my level Madison.
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, "Ooo, 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 in it hung itself
I saw a boy who had red hair...

I went to the store looking for something to buy
But the 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, Madison.
Pain, war, genocide, racism, sexism
But I gotta remember that there's good things about it too...

Like the fact that none of that is happening to me!
Score!

Still though, it's hard not to be sad about it.
How do you all do it?
I have been telling you terribly sad stuff this whole song and 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 was to solve all the sadness in the world.

I mean not for to people who are actually sad but the people like us who have to fucking deal with them all the time.

Being a comedian isn't being an insensitive prick, capitalizing in 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 mother 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!
