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. 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
Still alive

Wonderfully witty vid, and I love the play of theatre/'reality' too.

I love the song choice and concept. There is so much to chew on, for me it was especially interesting to think about how G&R are "still alive" in a conceptual sense, and as long as Hamlet is still being played then they will never die. And even if Hamlet doesn't get played, does the fact that they now have own play mean that they have taken on an alternate existence anyway? So interesting to think about. Thank you for the vid!

Love the concept in this--and the execution (ha) makes for a very clever and rather adorable vid! :D

I would have never in a million years thought of putting this song and this film together, but I loved it! Rosencrantz doing Science and the play of real and theatrical deaths at the end was particularly clever.
