"I'm Just Being Honest"

"Piece of Cake" is the fifth track from The Black Album. It was leaked online on February 26, 2019.



The lyric "Have some more Sprite" was lifted by Rivers Cuomo from the script of the 2021 film The Space Between (written by Will Aldis), wherein the character Micky Adams (Kelsey Grammer) encourages Charlie Porter (Jackson White) to "have some more 'Sprite'" (actually a beverage laced with drugs). Cuomo confirmed the connection in December of 2021, telling a fan, "I put the movie script into my machine. And when I was writing Piece of Cake, it suggested that line. I chose it without remembering where it came from."[1] Cuomo has stated that the "Betty" mentioned in the lyrics was a nonagenarian neighbor who moved away.[2]



Do do-do-do-do-do-do

Let's do hard drugs
Fix our problems
Let me swing by
Tears in my eyes

She cut me like a piece of cake
She cut me like a piece of cake
Hope can drive a man insane
She ate me up

Do do-do-do-do-do-do

Hop on this trash
Be my last chance
We'll eat ice cream
Weep for Betty

Do do-do-do-do-do-do

She was into me
And then she changed the dial like I'm grunge or gangsta' rap
Now I'm hanging out
With a kitty cat named Baudelaire on my lap
I never stopped her planets turning, no

Hey man, cheer up
Make your own luck
Have a nice life
Have some more Sprite
