Remember that song you’ll never be able to forget thanks to the Internet’s insistence on brutally hammering it into your skull? Well, it all started with Jonathan Coulton, and he’s returning to overwrite more precious childhood memories with another insidious tune.

“Closing the doors. If this plane goes down, the Portal 2 song goes with it. It is in my pocket,” Coulton tweeted.

He later added that the plane didn’t crash, which means he’s — yep — still alive.

Portal 2’s set to forever singe the color white into your retinas on April 20. In other words, you’ll only be able to hear one song and see one color. And when you’re old and gray, you’ll look back on a life full of entirely avoidable hardships and mumble: “Worth it.”
