Meaning

The imagery of gunfire and chaos is reflected in the water hydrants.

A recognizable image of new york is also that of hydrants spraying water high in the air. this has been seen in movies, like Do The Right Thing. Normally, it is used in the context of playful fun, often with children playing and enjoying the water spraying out of them.

But in this context Vordul Mega goes in the opposite direction and the uncontrollable water being fired from the hydrants represent a lack of control and chaos.
