Still Alive
Jonathan Coulton Lyrics

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
Till 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 *Haha - 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

"Now these points of data make a beautiful line, and we're out of beta we're releasing on time" - I'm a grown man, still getting goosebumps and watery eyes to this.


@Milan Starčević Solid comment. :D

As a software developer, I also get goosebumps when fantasize of releasing on time.

@Matt M well technically that robot is Still Alive

Matt M

Same. For some reason it really makes me feel hopeful - even though canonically it’s sung by a homicidal robot that we just killed...

Me too, and it's the weirdest thing. I played Portal and liked it a lot, bit it's not a game a have a real emotional attachment to. But that line... every single time.

@Panda It is and isn't a cover. The original was sung by GLaDOS (Ellen McLain) in Portal, but it was always Jonathan's song (his musical genius and creation). This is a new version of it.
