Storm's inimitable informative overview: "The design for Only Revolutions is partially based on the idea that revolutionary groups often bear a flag. Much of the album was colored by male/female dialectic, so the revolutionary flags became expressions of the anger and frustration that the couple could not display directly. Both parties carry behind their back instruments of harm - she a rolling pin, him a knife."
