"A Piece of What You Need" as written by and Adam Teddy Thompson....
Is this what we really want
Background music from a restaurant
Spare me, it's doing in my head
Drop dead gorgeous teen
Singing pages from her diary
So bad, you'd kick her out of bed

Break down the stupid wall
Stop doing what you're told
And don't believe a thing you see
Red light, drop that ball
Stop getting everything you want
And get a piece of what you need

Life on the happy pills
Counts on Pfizer to erase our ills
It's working, I'm feeling pretty blank
So sing, sing soulless boy
Give us more of your simple joy
It's soothing, money in the bank

Break down the stupid wall
Stop doing what you're told
And don't believe a thing you see
Red light, drop that ball
Stop getting everything you want
And get a piece of what you need

Oh, say can't you see
We're kinda, sorta living free
Staring into space
Bye, bye human race

Break down the stupid wall
Let's stop doing what we're told
And don't believe a thing you see
Oh, red light, drop that ball
Stop getting everything we want
And get a piece of what we need

    My InterpretationI think the first verse is obviously about Taylor Swift and Teddy's less-than-stellar opinion of her music.
