"Trophy" as written by and Severin Sioux....
Headhunters, headshrinkers, and long distance runners
Dust gathers on mementos, dust gathers on proud moments
Young voices grow thick and old
The cheers are distant wearing thin

Take it to the wall
To be hung on the wall, to be viewed by all
A tribute in the grand hall

Yes they're locked away or polished every day
For the maintenance man, in the back of a van
Oh young voices grow thick and old
The cheers are distant wearing thin

Take it to the wall
To be hung on the wall, to be viewed by all
A tribute in the grand hall

Bring yourselves out from your showcase parties
But you've been shut away too long
You've been shut away too long
Frightened faces in the rain
Misplaced features lost down the drain
Oh wash away and start again

Take it to the wall
To be hung on the wall, to be viewed by all
A tribute in the grand hall

    General CommentSEVERIN: "John and Kenny are going to recognise a few of the titles of the new songs, I think. Old lyrics that they've seen and turned their noses up at.... 'Trophy' was nearly on 'Join Hands'." Source: Zigzag 05/80.

    I think the song itself is about old forgetten people with all their medals, and they just sit there wallowing in nostalgia for their glory days.
