"Courage" as written by Terence Corso, Mitchell Dryden, Michael Cosgrove and Tye Zamora....
Contrary to the matter
Who you are, you are not
Come with me, I'll show you Saturn
Planets don't quite align

You should try not to be so courageous

[Chorus]
I never said you were a mistake at all
You got it all wrong, you're misunderstanding

Traveled far for this lover
Who she was she was not
But honestly it don't matter
Aliens ain't Farmers

You should try not to be so courageous

[Chorus]

You should try not to be so courageous
These dismal moods have become contagious

[Chorus]

    General Commentthis song describes a situation i had once pretty well. I was workin with my job on a three week assignment in a town about four hours drive from my home town. While i was there i would go back home every day i had off to see my then-girlfriend. I "traveled far for this lover"....and then i found out "who she was, she was not". She dumped me afterwards. Alot of AAF's songs are about relationships.....I find it helps me feel better cause i've had alot of the same problems that he talks about. They're so underrated and their best songs aren't even getting played on the radio.

    General Commentto Stincubus01: This is because of most of the horny/angry/shallow young teenagers that listen to stuff like Korn/backstreetboys/Britney Spears. It's geared towards them, the young ones, and no offense to anyone.. or anything.. d'oh. Anyone, Awesome song, AAF deserves more credit, but they won't get it, because they're a great band. Does anyone see where I'm going? hm..

    General CommentThis song has mixed meaning to it. It seems to be geared towards a relationship, of course, but a twisted one. We all been in one of those relationships with someone who thought they weren't good enough. That's what I think this song is about. In the first verse it talks about how someone isn't what they think and how he will "show you Saturn" meaning show them great and interesting things.
    The chorus definately shows how someone is trying to put themselves down as a "mistake" and he's trying to boost them back up.
    The post bridge "you should try not to be so courageous, this dismal mood has become contagious" Is a cue for them to let him in, and that their depression is just spreading into him.
    It's trying to bolster their self-esteem.

    General CommentHeh, looks like I'm a couple of years late. Lol, oh well, I love this song.

    Awesome song, yes. Very much about relationships, I'm sure. When I listen to this song, I think about the heroes in books (no, not romance novel heroes) and ....what if they failed? Anyways, thats just the connotation the song has in my mind.

    I smell stereotyping! *Looks at mongroid* Don't you just hate it when that happens?

    General Commentthis song is sooo true...i think this song is about people who are very self-indulgent...this song is like telling people to just be down to earth...like you don't have to always be noticed or always have to be in the spotlight...i'm most probably wrong... :-/
