Get back I'm a heretic and I'm on fire

from Bo Burnham – Rant Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Saying that Jesus isn’t the Messiah makes him a heretic, and the church would traditionally have burned him (Medieval Inquisition), so stay back or else you’ll catch on fire too.

To be “on fire” also means to be performing a lot better than normal, to be “in the zone” — in other words he says he is performing his best work by saying this.
