Song: Cake – “It's the ultimate reward!”

Liner notes

I had just finished Portal (don't listen to this song or read the words if you haven't played it through yet, but plan to) a few weeks earlier, and it was just too tempting to write a song about it. Then I pushed the super-colliding superbutton and uploaded it.

The tremolo-like effect your hear in some places was not intentional. I had a cable break or something. Didn't have time to properly adjust things and re-record, so it just stayed that way. I didn't entirely hate the way it turned out, actually.

I violated the laws of physics I risked my life a dozen times I let myself be watched all day I made it through unharmed anyway Nearly got burned And then I learned They didn't bake Me any cake The cake is fake I had to flee to parts unknown Got stomped on, shot at, all the way And then my captor, bit by bit, Got burned up, I must admit That did feel grand But on the other hand They didn't bake Me any cake The cake is fake They didn't bake Me any cake I can't partake

I'm not asking you that because I'm so incredibly vain... honestly! It's to prevent generic spam machines from unloading their freight here. Your feedback will only be accepted if you answer this correctly.

All fields are optional (except for the magic question I asked you just now).
