I came back
To face what's growing in my head
Please get away from me
Take advantage of what I feel
Yes you do
One day you'll beg for me

So I'm saying nothing
Each day taking that much more
As I'm scheming all my fate
You will be there counting

You just see me as something
As something you throw around
You were there for me
Beating down to the ground
Yes it always seems
You take more from me

So I'm saying nothing
Each day taking that much more
As I'm scheming all my fate
You will be there counting

It's funny how we've just started
They get the money for the things on you
They give ya money, and the girls and the fame
I only do it for the fun and the games

It's funny how we've just started
They get the money for the things on you
They give ya money, and the girls and the fame
I only do it for the fun
That's my game

So I'm saying nothing
Each day taking that much more
As I'm scheming all my fate
You will be there counting

    General CommentNo, I think it's about how the music industry use Korn to make money. "It's funny how we've just started
    They get the money for the things on you
    They give ya money, and the girls and the fame
    I only do it for the fun and the games". the label try to buy him with money, girls and fame and he feels like a whore, kinda "Dirty" or "Freak On A Leash".
    The title "Counting" it's about how the label count the money as Jonathan suffer.

    General Commenti think its about the time jon was abused and called "faget".
    (the same titled song is about this too)
    everyone made him down cause of his wear and the music he listened to'n so on.

    General Commentthe chorus, to me, is about taking shit and never saying anything to anyone about it, the first verse is about how he feels, the second is about girls and the third and fourth are about the record industry. I like how the music changes too.

    General Commentit does sound like a kind of freak on a leash type song where hes attacking the music industry but it also sounds like someone else is taking advantage of him: so im saying nothing/each day taking that much more/as im scheming all my fate/you will be there counting/ it kinda sounds like hes taking abuse from someone like bullies shit like that except the line that says you will be there counting. that sounds like rec exects. counting there money for him scheming his fate
