Jonathan Coulton – Still Alive 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 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 be 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
And while you're dying I'll be still alive
And when you're dead I will be still alive
Still alive
Still alive

    I love this song! It's also on left 4 dead 2! In The Parish in the room with the bus stuck inside there is a jukebox. Get nick to play it. You hit the X button and the jukebox plays a few songs like bad man and re: your brains, the saints will never come, some other song (I can't remember the name), and then still alive. Give it a few tries. It will show up. But, be careful because the zombies will hear you and try to kill everyone in the room. So, watch out but find the song. It's really great! Also, to kill the witch get a chainsaw, sneek up on her and give it the go! She will die within 2-3 seconds. Don't falter or she will kill you.
