We'll paint it red to fit right in
A lot of this verse seems to go along with the rise of communism, and other worker’s movements (the colour red is generally associated with left-wing politics — the Republican Party is a rare exception). The main idea that Karl Marx had when he came up with the idea of communism was that the proletariat (working class) would overthrow the bourgeois (upper class). Which is exactly what happens in the music video, and goes along with what the narrator is trying to accomplish in the song.
