Intro:
Esus2 E E-Esus4 E Esus2-E

Verse 1
E(riff)                          A                F#m
Pathological monsters! cried the terrified mathematician
      A                B7             E
Every one of them is a splinter in my eye
           E                    
I hate the Peano Space and the Koch Curve
           A              F#m
I 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) 2x
On a cold November day.. a man named Benoit Mandelbrot was born

Verse 2
E(riff)                                   A                 F#m
His 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#m
He saw that infinite complexity could be described by simple rules
            A               B                 E
He used his giant brain to turn the game around
       Amaj7                      Emaj7
And he looked below the storm and saw a vision in his head
  Amaj7           Emaj7
A bulbous pointy form
              F#m              B                E   B7 E B7
He picked his pencil up and he wrote his secret down

Pre Chorus
       E            B7       E       B7
Take a point called C in the complex plane
    E       B7           E  B7
Let Z1 be Z squared plus C
     E       B7           E B7
And Z2 is Z1 squared plus C
     E       B7           E (break)
And Z3 is Z2 squared plus C and so on
       A                    B7
If the series of Z's should always stay
Ab                   C#m    B
Close 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
         E
You're a day-glo pterodactyl
         B7
You're a heart-shaped box of springs and wire
           E              E7
You're one badass fucking fractal
           F#11            Amaj7
And you're just in time to save the day
F#11             Amaj7
Sweeping all our fears away
        F#11                  Amaj7   E(riff)4x
You can change the world in a tiny way

Verse 3
E (hold)                            A                 F#m
Mandelbrot'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#m
He gave us order out of chaos, he gave us hope where there was none
        A           B7                 E
And his geometry succeeds where others fail
       Amaj7          Emaj7  Amaj7          Emaj7
If you ever lose your way, a butterfly will flap its wings
       Amaj7          Emaj7         F#m          B7               E   B7 E B7
From a million miles away, a little miracle will come to take you home

Pre Chorus
       E            B7       E       B7
Take a point called C in the complex plane
    E       B7           E  B7
Let Z1 be Z squared plus C
     E       B7           E B7
And Z2 is Z1 squared plus C
     E       B7           E (break)
And Z3 is Z2 squared plus C and so on
       A                    B7
If the series of Z's should always stay
Ab                   C#m    B
Close to C and never trend away
     A               B7         E  (break)
That point is in the Mandelbrot Set

Final Chorus
           B7             
Mandelbrot Set you're a Rorschach Test on fire
         E
You're a day-glo pterodactyl
         B7
You're a heart-shaped box of springs and wire
           E              E7
You're one badass fucking fractal
           F#11            Amaj7
And you're just in time to save the day
F#11             Amaj7
Sweeping all our fears away
        F#11                  Amaj7   E(riff)
You can change the world in a tiny way

Tag
           F#11            Amaj7
And you're just in time to save the day
F#11             Amaj7
Sweeping all our fears away
        F#11                  Amaj7
You can change the world in a tiny way
      F#11                  Amaj7
Go on change the world in a tiny way
        F#11                  Amaj7
Come on change the world in a tiny way
