"Counterfeit" as written by William Frederick Durst, John Everett Otto, Samuel Robert Rivers and Wesley Louden Borland....
Freakin' me out you wear a mask called counterfeit,

You're freakin' me out you wear a mask [Repeat: x5]

Freakin' me out you wear a mask called counterfeit,
You're freakin' me out you wear a... fake
Hey man wake up and smell the concrete
Strange to see you've changed like the LB

Could be identity crisis but I can't buy this
Reality bites but that's what life is
Pitiful you, your hideous behavior
Hate what God gave ya, fakin all the flava

Artificial minds seekin out the new trends
Get in where you fit in
Quit thinkin like a has-been diggin in my culture

Let me let your punks know I'm an old school soldier
With the funk flow
A damn shame you want to change yourself

Because you're sick of yourself
Well I'm sick of you too, fake
You're a, a counterfeit, fake
You know we figured you out
Well I'm sick of you too, fake
You're a, a counterfeit, fake

I wonder, I wonder
I wonder what it's like to be a clone
Doin' nothin, nothin' on my own
Alone in your misery, you're bitin on my new style

Filed as a counterfeit, going down in history as nothin but a copy cat (copy cat)
So if your fakin that you're phat you need a ballbat
Right where your head is at
All your desperation causes separation

Now I grab the mic to intimidate
Your weakness screams from the limb on your siren
Phonies get the hint quick smacked with funk flick
Pain for the fakers fame can't maintain


All these phonies
You disregarded your life (disregaurded your life)
You disrespected your friends (you disrespected your friends)
You've even stolen your appearance (stolen) from hangin out with my family

But I should have never dropped my guard (shoulda never dropped my gaurd)
So you could stab me in the back (stab me in the back)
But you were faking me out (you were faking me out)
Just faking me out you wear a mask (you wear a mask)

Freaking me out you wear a mask called counterfeit, you're freaking me out you

Wear a mask called counterfeit [Repeat: x2]

Freaking me out you wear a mask called counterfeit [Repeat: x4]

Now you're steadily startin to change
You want to rearrange your lifestyle with live like the wild child
With the vibe alive you could lie to try and be so fly
A lie but you deny you're a fake

You know we figured you're a phony (fake)
You know we figured you out (fake)
You know we figured you out, figured you out, figured you out
Fake (a bunch of times)

You're probably freaking me out (a bunch of times)

    General CommentIt's so sad. Well, anyway this song is about just being yourself and not just be what others consider normal. "Be real" in other words.

    General CommentThis song is about a person who is a wannabe. This song fits in perfectly with the title album "Three Dollar Bill Y'all$" whereas there is no three-dollar bill available, so a three-dollar bill is in fact a counterfeit.
