I think that is part of why I'm enjoying it more than I initially thought I was going to. It's been making me grin.
Indeed - Spike-a-delic revolution or revolutionary man which recounts the tale of how our hero JC didn't even manage to make it to the G20 demo!!
I've been enjoying the album all week - plenty of great tunes, nice Teardrops-esque mellotron brass, lots of acoustic strumming, mellotron oboe etc. Lovely stuff - best Cope album since Black Sheep in my opinion!
Regarding the guns etc - why can't this just be a provocative stance? Get the authorities worried, shake some folk out of their apathy, get people stirred into peaceful action (this is assuming anybody outside HH notices the album - there's usually a review or two by now of a new JC album).
Assuming similar ideas were worked into a novel or a film and the cover of both had someone wielding a gun would that create such a storm?
