What is "fake believe"?

The Google results sum it up: pretty much all the (useful) results refer to the song, and it says at the top "Did you mean to search for: make-believe". One of the few non-song-related results casts it as a made-up phrase. Would it have been that much harder to write a song called "M is for make-believe"? :-)

I ask someone the time and they reply "six of one". Assuming they are telling the truth, the time is:

6:01
1(2.6%)
1:06
13(34.2%)
12:54
19(50.0%)
1pm 1pm 1pm 1pm 1pm 1pm
0(0.0%)
something else
2(5.3%)
What do you want? Information. You won't get it!
3(7.9%)

This phrasing is common:

in the USA
11(32.4%)
in Canada
1(2.9%)
in Britain
3(8.8%)
in Australia or New Zealand
1(2.9%)
somewhere else
2(5.9%)
nowhere where they speak proper English
12(35.3%)
