Pathological monsters! cried the terrified mathematician
 
Every one of them 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 wanna 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
 
Used his giant brain and he turned the game around
 
And he looked below the storm
 
Saw a vision in his head
 
A bulbous pointy form
 
Picked his pencil up and he wrote his secret down
 
 
 
Just take a point called Z in the complex plane (Alternate: Take a point called C...)
 
Let Z1 be Z squared plus C (Alternate: Let Z1 be zero squared...)
 
And Z2 is Z1 squared plus C
 
And Z3 is Z2 squared plus C and so on
 
If the series of Zs should 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 badass fucking 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
 
His geometry succeeds where others fail
 
So 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 (Alternate: Take a point called C...)
 
Let Z1 be Z squared plus C (Alternate: Let Z1 be zero squared...)
 
And Z2 is Z1 squared plus C
 
And Z3 is Z2 squared plus C and so on
 
If the series of Zs will always stay
 
Close to Z instead of 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 badass fucking 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

Since the death of Benoit Mandelbrot in October 2010, Jonathan has omitted the lines, "at least he will be when he's dead / right now he's still alive and teaching math at Yale," in live performances.
