[Verse 1]

from Childish Gambino – Bonfire Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

CG did an interview with Fuse explaining that the Bonfire video almost starred Tyler Perry.

He also goes on to explain the meaning behind the video. CG plays a black man at camp back when segregation first started. He was hung for being black and forced to relive the story every time it is told.

CG’s aim for the video was to have a dark, sad feel to it.
