"Prize" as written by Gavin Richard Harrison and Ricardo A. Byer....
Well we were talking and we were drinking
Letting the fat flow go
And we were asking and we were thinking
In the belly of a bar

It was easy almost indifferent
Until my heckles rise
What's that you're asking if I remember?
The pub walls are dissolving

The guilt was thin then, his hair long
Brown to match his eyes
It's none of your business what his name was
Would I even get a prize?

There's been a hundred and that's not boasting
Just the ways of this world
How dare he even ask this?
These pub walls are drowning

Your glass is empty just like your heard
It's these times I don't know you
And how about you can you remember?
You shake your head and say drunk

It's a small thing why am I angry?
These words are signs of warning
Because behind them there's the implication
The pub is burning down

So do I get a prize for remembering that first time
Do I get a prize for remembering his name?

    General CommentI don't agree with the gay couple angle--at least, I don't see any reason to believe this applies. It's obvious to me that the other asked the one about his first gay experience, or how many men he'd been with. The one who's asking doesn't seem gay, but actually ignorant of the gay world. It's the "implication" that the history of "a hundred...not boasting, just the ways of this world," makes him a slut, that makes the one upset, along with, of course, the other's nosiness.

    I used to skip this song because on probably 99% of the U.S. CD pressings (but not cassette), about one second of the song is missing, and that annoyed the shmit out of me. The version on Capsule is restored, o happy day, so now I can properly enjoy it.

    General Commenti think this song is about a gay couple arguing about one of them cheated, i just love how every single word draws the scene on a pub, when everything was calm until someone asks about the cheat and everything gets uneasy and they start fighting. i think at the end of the song they break up.

    General Commenti also think is:

    "your glass is empty, just like your HEAD"
