I met a young woman whose body was burning
At Ground Zero, everything will be vaporized.
At further concentric circles outward, bodies will catch fire and burn.
The lyric could refer to this, or being deliberately set on fire by the surviving people, who are insane.
It could even refer to a woman, who in spite of the carnage, still burns with desire.
