Portal – 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
'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.

    It's basically something that congratulates you on your completion of Portal. Plus, one of the reasons they did it is because they knew that since it was part of the Orange Box, people were going to jump at Team Fortress 2 and The Half Life games, so they wanted to start something new, Portal.
    But they didn't know how to get people to love it. So they threw in a female voice, no other humans in sight, and a song at the end. And anyway, if you didn't play the game, you shouldn't be istening to it anyway because the entirety of the song is, as, Kaekun said, reflecting off the events which happened in the game.

    The Portal Series is technically one of the greatest games I've played because of the thrilling twist of the whole storyline within the game itself. GLaDos became addicted to test subject that she thought all of them will play by her rules. As Chell woke up (in Portal 1) she tried to kill Chell using the turrets. Chell destroyed her to escape and take the cake (which is at the last part). In Portal 2, GLaDos was reactivated by her and GLaDos immediately placed her on testing again. As you progress, you will see how much destruction Chell (which is by the way your character) did as she destroyed GLaDos. But even though you have destroyed GLaDos, she still helped you after all the things you have done to her (seriously, putting in her a potato?). She let you free with a free-of-charge Companion Cube. And she also gave you a very beautiful orchestra of turrets as you exit the facility.

    They should have put this song on portal 2 like in the beggining instead of classical music the robot mistakes still alive for his classical cd and puts still alive instead that would have been better and to the person that said glados is chells mom your wrong cause if youve ever played portal 2 then you would know that chells last name is johnson so her dad is cave johnson and her mom is caroline johnson so her parents were the old owners of aperture science and if youve ever heard of ratman then you probably don't know that hes her cousin because in one of his hide outs hidden throughout portal 2 you here him scream "help me uncle johnson!! " and chells dad is cave johnson so that proves that ratman or doug rattmann is chells cousin who saves you and brings you back to aperture science after the events of portal 1.
