"Little Discourage" as written by Bob Fairfoull, Colin Newton, Rod Pryce-jones and Roddy Woomble....
I found a mountain on my own (I'm encouraged)
Trust history to say it's unknown (it's discouraging)
There's a seventeen contest in my own home (discourage)
Sick of seventeen contests in my own home (discourage)
Don't cross the road, you're under a spell
A broken violin (discourage)
Don't cross the road, you're under a spell
Of broken violins

All I need is a little discourage
All I need is a little discourage
All I need is a little discourage
All I need is a little discourage
All I need is a little discourage

I ran away from my own telephone (discourage)
It rings to tell you what the future holds in store, so
There's a lack of confidence at home (discourage)
When a seventeen contest fills your own home (discourage)
Put your trust in courage, because no one can tell
The broken violent
Put your trust in courage, no one can tell
The broken violent

All I need is a little discourage
(the world knows what I need
But it's proving far too hard for me)

    General CommentThis song is saying like everything you do, it always backfires because people are always there throwing it back in your face -"I found a mountain on my own, trust history to say it's unknown" and it is discouraging to realise that nothing you do is ever good enough for them. We constantly change ourselves to suit their ideals but eventually you are going to realise you can never be who they want. It breaks your confidence down and through saying "put your trust in courage" he is just saying to beleive in yourself, you have the strength to stand up for what you are and to be yourself. You don't have to constantly try and please other people. I think this song is quite hedonistic-you should pursue pleasure and tell everyone else to go fuck themselves. Anyone wants to talk about Idlewild and other kickass bands then feel free to e-mail me :-)

    General CommentI think he sings "broken violin" the first time, and "broke and violent" the second time.
