I want to say my peace, I hope that it sinks in
I want to flatten your crease, I want to make you bend
I want to show you how you lose
when the bottom falls out they'll sell you out
those counterfeit men and their counterfeit rules

I trust myself and I trust you
but not, but not
I've seen them line you up
I've seen them run you down
I've seen you be their crutch
and I've seen you be their clown
I'm gonna show you how you lose
you play the game you wear the noose
of those counterfeit men and their counterfeit rules

you've seen them on tv
with their bombs and their death rays
and they tell you the only thing to fear
is that devil and his gay plague
I'm gonna show you how you lose
I trust myself and I trust you
but not counterfeit men or their counterfeit rules

when the bottom falls out they'll sell you out
you play the game you wear the noose
I trust myself and I trust you
but not counterfeit men or counterfeit rules

    General Commenti know the lyrics are different on the web site, but this is what i hear, and they miss the little things on the site too, but maybe i'm wrong


    I want to say my peace and I hope that it sinks in
    I want to flatten your crease
    I want to make you bend
    I'm gonna show you how you lose
    I'm gonna show you how you lose
    when the bottom falls out they'll sell you out
    those counterfeit men and their counterfeit rules
    I trust myself and I trust you
    but not, but not, but not

    and I've seen them line you up
    and I've seen them run you down
    and I've seen you be their crutch
    and I've seen you be their clown
    I'm gonna show you how you lose
    I'm gonna show you how you lose
    when you play the game you wear the noose
    of those counterfeit men and their counterfeit rules

    I trust myself and I trust you
    but not, but not, but not

    you've seen them on tv
    with their bombs and their death rays
    and they tell you the only thing to fear
    is that devil and his gay plagues
    I'm gonna show you how you lose
    I'm gonna show you how you lose
    I trust myself and I trust you
    but not counterfeit men or counterfeit rules
    I trust myself and I trust you
    but not, but not

    when the bottom falls out they'll sell you out
    you play the game you wear the noose
    I trust myself and I trust you
    but not, but not

    when the bottom falls out they'll sell you out
    you play the game you wear the noose
    and I trust myself and I trust you
    but not counterfeit men or counterfeit rules

    General Commentthe second verse is actually:

    you've seen them on tv
    with their bombs and their death rays
    and they tell you the only thing to fear
    is that devil and his gay plagues
    I'm gonna show you how you lose
    I'm gonna show you how you lose
    I trust myself and I trust you
    but not counterfeit men or counterfeit rules
    I trust myself and I trust you
    but not, but not, but not


    i missed a "but not", thats VERY important
