Why Brian couldn't include explicit version of 'Love Token' to 'Back To The Light' album - was it prohibited by Parlophone/EMI or he has his own reasons?

(For QZers who don't know what is explicit version of 'Love Token': this version is similar with album's one, but has some minor lyrics changes: " got shit for brains..." instead of " got meat for brains..." and "Ooh, well fuck you" instead of "Ooh, that's a shame" and it was given away on "RCD" magazine only)

We know about some Fred's ideas with lyrics (like some words on 'Life Is Real' original lyrics or 'One Vision'), but those versions of the songs weren't released in any official ways, therefore there's no question about it, but if 'Love Token' was available officialy with explicit lyrics, so why he couldn't use this version on the album? This track doesn't sounds like a demo!

P.S. The Roger/EMI reasons of releasing more 'gentle' version of 'Nazis 1994' are more clear for me.
