Hey guys, first I want to say I absolutely loved you when I saw y’all back in March. Currently I’m pursuing a Master’s in English and, as part of a paper, I’ve elected to look at the lyrics of “Fin” in terms of queer theory. You use childlike names (Tommy, Billy, etc.) in the beginning of the song, and allude to the possibility of abuse (“You made his faith…man of the cloth”).

Is this an intentional reference to sexual abuse? Is there any lyric root in child sexual abuse at all? Or am I totally misinterpreting things?
