Underneath the dark marquis
The smoke has finally cleared
And though the street is quiet
My blood beats loud inside my arteries

Is this your best design?
All that stood now lays in ruin
Well you’ve finished your scaffolding
But on me for strength it must rely

I’ve been written off
I’ve been written off before

We handed them our voices
Just in time to hear them say farewell
We just wanted to be counted
Bodies pressed together, arms held aloft

I yell for myself
And I yell it out of fear
At the last abandoned payphone
Well someone’s calling but the ringing no one hears

I’ve been written off
I’ve been written off before

We handed them our voices
Just in time to hear them say farewell
We just wanted to be counted
Bodies pressed together, arms held aloft

Well I’m ashamed by what it takes to appease myself
At least I stood in line just like everybody else
We just wanted to be counted
Bodies pressed together, arms held aloft
