Counterfeits - Lyrics

Why can't I get it through my head?
A screen can't give what it promises
I keep on falling for the trick
Time after time and time again, again

I want the truth
I want the real thing
I want the genuine to hold to the light
In a world that keeps us faking
Illuminate reveal what I'm chasing
If it's paper thin
Only deep as skin, I'm done with it
The counterfeits

In this land of milk and honey
I gave up love to chase my lust
I treated sex like it was money
And I could never get enough, enough

I want the truth
I want the real thing
I want the genuine to hold to the light
In a world that keeps us faking
Illuminate reveal what I'm chasing
If it's paper thin
Only deep as skin, I'm done with it
The counterfeits

Lights camera action
Make it hard to tell
What is imitation or simply for sale
Pleasure in pictures
All promise to fill
But if it don't cost me nothing
I know it's not real

I want the truth
I want the real thing
I want the genuine to hold to the light
In a world that keeps us faking
Illuminate reveal what I'm chasing
If it's paper thin
Only deep as skin, I'm done with it
The counterfeits
If it's paper thin
Only deep as skin, I'm done with it
The counterfeits
