Another question about Sebastian, this time.

Has somebody here worked on the words and the meaning of this song ?

I red in here somewhere that it is a "labyrinthic" song which has probably no real meaning.
But though, I am sure it is related to something/ somebody.

And ... Who might be Sebastian ?

Any chance being linked with "Suddenly, Last Summer", the movie with Monty Clift ?

Im not sure where, but I recall reading that the song was inspired by the famous painting "St Sebastian".
