Until Morale Improves, The Beatings Will Continue (3:46)

Cover of Who Will Survive, and What Will Be Left of Them?

From Who Will Survive, and What Will Be Left of Them? and 4 other releases

From band site: UNTIL MORALE IMPROVES, THE BEATINGS WILL CONTINUE is about the hero of the story, who is returning to the town where he shot the devil in order to finish him off. He is walking across the desert “with blood on his breath” ready to finish what he started. The chorus features the amazing William Elliot Whitmore on backup vocals. He sang to us in the studio through a telephone by the side of the road in Texas, and our producer Dan Goodwin was able to raise the volume enough so you can hear it.

The chorus paralels the hero to the Christian act of transubstantiation, where, upon eating and drinking the wafer and wine at mass, they actually become the body and blood of Christ. In his case, “Buckshot is his bread, and he’ll drink whiskey instead…” PS: since this song has come out, thanks everyone for the whiskey.
