Still Alive by Jonathan Coulton from the Valve game Portal

(Bm)       (D)        Bm         D
This was a triumph
Bm           D          Bm       D        Bm
I’m making a note here: huge success
Em               A             D    Bm    D   
It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction
Bm       D       Bm       D
Aperture Science
Bm            D      Bm       D       Bm 
We do what we must because we can
Em              A
For the good of all of us
Except the ones who are dead
F                    C           Bb       F
But there’s no sense crying over every mistake
F                C               Bb         F
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake
Gm                   C            F           Dm
And the science gets done and you make a neat gun
B                      A      D    Bm   D 
For the people who are still alive

Bm           D         Bm         D
I’m not even angry
Bm        D     Bm         D        Bm
I’m being so sincere right now
Em              A                  D        Bm    D 
Even though you broke my heart and killed me
Bm             D       Bm       D
And tore me to pieces
Bm              D      Bm    D       Bm 
And threw every piece into a fire
Em                A
As they burned it hurt because
I was so happy for you
F                   C           Bb        F
Now these points of data make a beautiful line
F                C             Bb         F
And we’re out of beta, we’re releasing on time
Gm                C                F                 Dm
So I’m glad I got burned, think of all the things we learned
B                      A      D    Bm   D 
For the people who are still alive

Bm           D         Bm         D
Go ahead and leave me
Bm             D      Bm     D        Bm
I think I’d prefer to stay inside
Em                A               D        Bm    D 
Maybe you’ll find someone else to help you
Bm          D       Bm       D
Maybe Black Mesa
Bm         D        Bm      D       Bm 
That was a joke, ha ha, fat chance
Em          A
Anyway this cake is great
It’s so delicious and moist
F                C                    Bb         F
Look at me still talking when there’s science to do
F               C                 Bb           F
When I look out there it makes me glad I’m not you
Gm                  C             F              Dm
I’ve experiments to run, there is research to be done
B                     A      D    Bm   D 
On the people who are still alive

       Bm        D         Bm     D
And believe me I am still alive
          Bm          D          Bm     D
I’m doing science and I’m still alive
       Bm            D          Bm     D
I feel fantastic and I’m still alive
                 Bm         D         Bm     D
And while you’re dying I’ll be still alive
                Bm          D         Bm     D
And when you’re dead I will be still alive
D      Bm
Still alive
D      Bm
Still alive

Do you play the G#M7 0043 as suggested or do you have a better way? Because that sounds a bit funny to me.

You could use a capo on the second fret, that makes this song way easier to play!

Dont play it with a capo, use our second finger to do the D chord, then it is more easy to play Bm.

Also this song is a awesome practice for the Barre Chords.
Switchung slowly between D and Bm is really helping.

Also if you cant play Barres, try training your muscles via holding all 4 frets on the 5th and play each string single, try to figure out dead notes and then move to the 4th and so on.

This will train your muscles and also help you gaining the muscle memory for barres.
