The light post is probably a metaphor for the government. Thus, "If you own the light post, you own the working class" because the government shows us their truth. And if you want answers, you should be ready to burn him (and start thinking for yourself), because the light post is trying to keep you from thinking and shows you the path it wants you to see. The ships are people who are not willing to accept this and therefore they attack the light post. "The orange light that follows will soon proclaim itself as god" could be a warning, because history teaches us that the leaders of revolutions themselves often become the new dictators. So, the fire (orange light) that burns the light post proclaims itself as the new god (dictator). The last verse shows that more and more people are willing to fight the government to get answers. In fact, they are bound to win the fight, because the narrator of this verse, who seems to be a guard of the light post, says that it is all over.
