    I thought it was a reference to the Stanley cup. Thought maybe they might have been Canadian and it was about a certain victory.

    This was written by Dan Peek, who was one of the three original members of America. Many of Peek's compositions show a very spiritual and searching side and "Lonely People," a call for the lonely and despairing to seek God, is one of those songs and easily his best-known. Peek left the band in 1977 to focus on his faith, and since leaving America, he has performed this song live with little doubt left in the chorus as to what he means, singing "Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup and give your heart to Jesus Christ."
