It's the lyrics of the second song in a little project I've found myself fiddling with the last few months. ("The fairest summer" that I posted a while ago is the final one)
It's about a whole lot of things, but basically I'm just using an unnamed city in a near future after something horrible has happened, and this is the first presentation of that city. I have this image of a guy in a tattered coat, hands in pockets, walking through the city, by chance seeing a woman get raped and killed, numbly reflecting about it. I think the last verse becomes more clear if I say that it's sarcasm from beginning to end.

Nice to hear that you didn't necessarily had to know that though!
