"Don't Call It A Comeback" as written by and Matthew Scott Taylor Justin Courtney Pierre....
We don't like endless cycles
Are take is more than meets the eye
That's our answer yeah that's our answer
'cause we don't care at all

Don't call it a comeback no
This witness was injured and overthrown away
This time it's the last dance so come on
By will alone we set our minds in motion

Long winded the progress oh
Setback after setback the need to play remains
Call it what you will somehow I know you will
And by will alone we set our minds in motion

I see that part of this has something to do with mediocore memory
This take is harder than the old and new combined
Head buried attack these manic men
Red glares from the color of outstretched hands
Get it higher

    General CommentI saw Motion City Soundtrack about 2 weeks ago at this tiny club in Mineola, NY. They played with this local band, patent pending and after patent pending played, half the crowd left. so, for mcs there was about 20 people there and it was the most amazing show i've ever been to. everytime i listen to them i just want to rock out harder than i ever had before. i suggest listening to them and loving them cause its so easy to.

    General CommentWARNING THIS SONG IS ADDICTIVE and WILL GET STUCK IN YOUR HEAD! belotte drive is right, they do kinda sound like reunion show (who by the way also kick ass) , but the real catch on this song is the lead singer says "dont call it a comeback, no" like "doont call it a coOOOoomeback, no-ah". rock on mcs!

    General CommentThere's an endless cycle of revenge involved in a friendship, and he's trying to draw the line without being soft. So he's saying if this person doesn't consider whatever he's doing a comeback, then it will end the "long winded process" so they can just move on.
