"Hot Tonight" as written by and Timothy Pagnotta Dave Monks....
Standing in a world with a streetlight sun
I don't keep my sneakers white
All I really got is a name and a buck
To get me to another life
And I wonder what you're doing tonight.

I burn the house down
And I leave it behind
I didn't need the money but the money was nice
I need a countdown
When the fire is high
Sitting on the curb and it's hot tonight.

Two a.m. is bright from this side of the street
Tomorrow seems a year away
Sitting by the fire and I saved you a seat
You're not keeping track of days
And I wonder what you're doing tonight.

I burn the house down
By the end of the night
My pocket's full of nothing and it's keeping me light
I need a countdown
When the fire is high
Sitting on the curb and it's hot tonight.

Drinking in the park
Staring at the stars like a satellite dish
I had a good time
And I'm ready to die.

Nothing is enough to anyone else
I wait until they pass me by
Standing in a world with a streetlight sun
Watch me slipping out of sight
And I wonder what you're doing tonight.

I burn the house down
By the end of the night
I didn't need the money but the money was nice
I need a countdown
As I'm watching it die
Sitting on the curb and it's hot tonight.

    General CommentI don't know for sure, but what I interpret this as is his life flying by and how he eventually has to move on but he enjoyed his life and is now ready to die. I think the "burn the house down" is him metaphorically burning the important things in his life so he can move on. Although the song takes place in a night, I think it is symbolic of his life

    This may be completely wrong but it's just how I interpret it...if you think I'm wrong plz correct me :)

    My InterpretationAt first I thought this song was a chirpy song about a guy sitting outside being free or something. But after listening ti the words moreIm pretty sure this song is about him burning down someones house.
