Still Alive - Jonathan Coulton

This was a triumph.
I'm making a note here:
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 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. o_o
And threw every piece... into... a fire. o.o
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 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.
There are 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'll be
still alive.


still alive. =)

The smilies were added by me, to add emotion. XD

The song is the ending theme to the game Portal, off of The Orange Box. The robot you hear during the game is singing it, and well, a lot of the jokes you won't get unless you've played the game.

The cake was your prize for getting through the testing grounds. XD

I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
