Still Alive - Jonathan Coulton

This was a triumph
I'm making a note here:
Huge success

It's hard to overstate
my satisfaction

Aperture Science:
We do what we must
because we can
For the good of all of us
Except the ones who are dead

But there's no sense crying
over every mistake
You just keep on trying
'til you run out of cake
And the science gets done
And you make a neat gun
for the people who are
still alive

I'm not even angry
I'm being so sincere right now
Even though you broke my heart,
and killed me

And tore me to pieces
And threw every piece into a fire
As they burned it hurt because
I was so happy for you!

Now, these points of data
make a beautiful line
And we're out of beta
We're releasing on time!
So I'm GLaD I got burned!
Think of all the things we learned!
for the people who are
still alive

Go ahead and leave me
I think I'd prefer to stay inside
Maybe you'll find someone else
to help you
Maybe Black Mesa?
That was a joke Ha Ha Fat Chance!

Anyway this cake is great!
It's so delicious and moist!

Look at me: still talking
when there's science to do!
When I look out there,
it makes me glad I'm not you

I've experiments to run
There is research to be done
On the people who are
still alive
And believe me I am
still alive
I'm doing science and I'm
still alive
I feel fantastic and I'm
still alive
While you're dying I'll be
still alive
And when you're dead I will be
still alive

Still alive

Still alive
