Intro:
Esus2 E E-Esus4 E Esus2-E
Verse 1
E(riff) A F#mPathological monsters! cried the terrified mathematician
A B7 EEvery one of them is a splinter in my eye
E I hate the Peano Space and the Koch Curve
A F#mI fear the Cantor Ternary Set
A B7 E The Sierpinski Gasket makes me want to cry
Amaj7 Emaj7 Amaj7 Emaj7 And a million miles away a butterfly flapped its wings
Amaj7 Emaj7 F#m B7 E(riff) 2xOn a cold November day.. a man named Benoit Mandelbrot was born
Verse 2
E(riff) A F#mHis disdain for pure mathematics and his unique geometrical insights
A B7 E(riff)Left him well equipped to face those demons down
E A F#mHe saw that infinite complexity could be described by simple rules
A B EHe used his giant brain to turn the game around
Amaj7 Emaj7And he looked below the storm and saw a vision in his head
Amaj7 Emaj7A bulbous pointy form
F#m B E B7 E B7He picked his pencil up and he wrote his secret down
Pre Chorus
E B7 E B7Take a point called C in the complex plane
E B7 E B7Let Z1 be Z squared plus C
E B7 E B7And Z2 is Z1 squared plus C
E B7 E (break)And Z3 is Z2 squared plus C and so on
A B7If the series of Z's should always stay
Ab C#m BClose to C and never trend away
A B7 E (break)That point is in the Mandelbrot Set
Chorus
B7 Mandelbrot Set you're a Rorschach Test on fire
EYou're a day-glo pterodactyl
B7You're a heart-shaped box of springs and wire
E E7You're one badass fucking fractal
F#11 Amaj7And you're just in time to save the day
F#11 Amaj7Sweeping all our fears away
F#11 Amaj7 E(riff)4xYou can change the world in a tiny way
Verse 3
E (hold) A F#mMandelbrot's in heaven, at least he will be when he's dead
A B7 E(riff)Right now he's still alive and teaching math at Yale
E(riff) A F#mHe gave us order out of chaos, he gave us hope where there was none
A B7 EAnd his geometry succeeds where others fail
Amaj7 Emaj7 Amaj7 Emaj7If you ever lose your way, a butterfly will flap its wings
Amaj7 Emaj7 F#m B7 E B7 E B7From a million miles away, a little miracle will come to take you home
Pre Chorus
