[turret]
Cores and turrets of every stage,
Wouldn't you like to escape this cage?

[defective turret]
Come to us and you'll be sure
You're not safe in Aperture

[turret]
This is Aperture
This is Aperture
Test subjects die once they're in sight
This is Aperture
Everybody hit the floor
Take a seat
'Till the neurotoxin makes you die

[defective turret]
It's not safe
We are sure
You're not safe in Aperture

[Wheatley]
I am the one that's keeping you alive
'Cause, you know, it's bloody hard to survive

[GLaDOS]
I am the one that wants to test
Maybe at the end I'll let you rest

[turret]
This is Aperture
This is Aperture
Aperture
Aperture
Aperture
Aperture

[defective turret]
You're not safe
In this place
All of us warn you of the big white face

[GLaDOS]
You are safe
Don't you struggle now
Don't you want your nice big cake?

[defective turret]
Down that corridor
Running to the exit door
She is waiting there to grab and kill you

[turret]
Run!

[defective turret]
This is Aperture

[turret]
White and grey

[Wheatley]
And slightly blue

[GLaDOS]
Want some cake?
Well, NONE FOR YOU!

[Wheatley]
Portal here
Portal there
Throw a turret in the air
Watch for the bullets that will graze your hair

[turret]
Everybody run!
Everybody run!
You're not safe in Aperture

I am the bot with the adorable face
Ready to shoot you in your place

[defective turret]
I am the reject that gave you a scare

[announcer]
I am the voice that you hear in there

[Cave Johnson]
I am the head of this great place
And I just bought some rocks from space

[turret]
This is Aperture
This is Aperture
Aperture
Aperture
Aperture
Aperture
Aperture
Aperture

[announcer]
Testing subjects usually die
Science isn't fun without cyanide
That's the drill, and you may die
'Cause you're not safe in Aperture

[GLaDOS]
You are safe
Don't you struggle now
Don't you want your nice big cake?

[Wheatley]
GLaDOS the giant may fill your room with neurotoxin

[turret]
Shoot you with a rocket turret
Turn you into burning mush

This is Aperture
Everybody run!

[defective turret]
You better escape to a much safer place

[turret]
Our dear Chell is master of the portal gun
Everybody help her in her flight!

[Wheatley]
Now!

[turret]
This is Aperture
This is Aperture
Aperture
Aperture
Aperture
Aperture

You're not safe
In this place
All of us warned you of the big white face

La x20
Ooooooooooooooo...
