This song was intentionally written to be confusing, to a degree, as to it's own subject matter.
From the religious sounding title, to the vagueness of the initial lyrics, it's not sure exactly who the heck these boys are admiring and reminiscing about.
Quickly it becomes even more confusing, if you were sucked in by the initial impressions of the song, as the story becomes more and more offbeat.
At the end, it all becomes clear, and you understand who they were singing about, a childhood hero to many (although in many ways not an admirable person at all, if historical context is to be believed).
