Can You Explain This To Me?

I'm really digging this "Cleopatra" song by the Lumineers.  I am having some issues computing what the song is about?  The video doesn't really help.  Please explain this to my simple little brain.  Any help would be awesome.  Click above where it says Comments to help.
