I went to one of their shows a few years back, and when they preformed this song, I cried more than I had in years. One of the most powerful songs I've personally ever heard. Colin also introduced the song as "the story of two male prostitute junkies", so I think it's pretty obvious where he stands on the gender thing since he wrote the song in the first place.
Anyway, ramblings aside, your Decemberists art is gorgeous, but this is my favorite
Thank you for the beautiful art!
