Jonathan Coulton - Mandelbrot Set Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Pathological monsters! cried the terrified mathematician
  • Every one of them is a splinter in my eye
  • I hate the Peano Space and the Koch Curve
  • I fear the Cantor Ternary Set
  • The Sierpinski Gasket makes me want to cry
  • And a million miles away a butterfly flapped its wings
  • On a cold November day a man named Benoit Mandelbrot was born
  • His disdain for pure mathematics and his unique geometrical insights
  • Left him well equipped to face those demons down
  • He saw that infinite complexity could be described by simple rules
  • He used his giant brain and he turned the game around
  • And he looked below the storm and saw a vision in his head
  • A bulbous pointy form
  • He picked his pencil up and he wrote his secret down
  • Just Take a point called Z in the complex plane
  • Let Z1 be Z squared plus C
  • And Z2 is Z1 squared plus C
  • And Z3 is Z2 squared plus C and so on
  • If the series of Z's will always stay
  • Close to Z and never trend away
  • That point is in the Mandelbrot Set
  • Mandelbrot Set you're a Rorschach Test on fire
  • You're a day-glo pterodactyl
  • You're a heart-shaped box of springs and wire
  • You're one bad-ass *****ing fractal
  • And you're just in time to save the day
  • Sweeping all our fears away
  • You can change the world in a tiny way
  • Mandelbrot's in heaven, at least he will be when he's dead
  • Right now he's still alive and teaching math at Yale
  • He gave us order out of chaos, he gave us hope where there was none
  • And his geometry succeeds where others fail
  • If you ever lose your way, a butterfly will flap its wings
  • From a million miles away, a little miracle will come to take you home
  • Just take a point called Z in the complex plane
  • Let Z1 be Z squared plus C
  • And Z2 is Z1 squared plus C
  • And Z3 is Z2 squared plus C and so on
  • If the series of Z's will always stay
  • Close to Z and never trend away
  • That point is in the Mandelbrot Set
  • Mandelbrot Set you're a Rorschach Test on fire
  • You're a day-glo pterodactyl
  • You're a heart-shaped box of springs and wire
  • You're one bad-ass *****ing fractal
  • And you're just in time to save the day
  • Sweeping all our fears away
  • You can change the world in a tiny way
  • And you're just in time to save the day
  • Sweeping all our fears away
  • You can change the world in a tiny way
  • Go on change the world in a tiny way
  • Come on change the world in a tiny way
