about

The Library, inhabited by the great polymath, philosopher, librarian (and 'friend' of famous women) Gottfried Von Leibniz. He and Isaac Newton couldn't stand each other (Newton was a jerk). Expand your mind in here. Roll the dice four times.

lyrics

Gottfried's the name
Von Leibniz
The ultimate mind, the polymath man
Under my wig, you'll find my
Punch cards and pin calculator

Computer scientist, psychologist historian
Yes I predicted, the molten core of the earth

Endless invention
More, than you can imagine
Charmed, Hanover ladies with ideas
Sufficient reason, and laws
My wheels are turning
To words, letters from China
To learn something new
With an optimists view


Isaac Newton
Claimed that I
Worked my way in, and ripped his maths off
But in the end, you know that
I'm going to get the very last laugh

Master philosopher, linguist and librarian,
Yes I predicted, the molten core of the earth

Endless invention
More, than you can imagine
Charmed, Hanover ladies with ideas
Sufficient reason, and laws
My wheels are turning
To words, letters from China
To learn something new
With an optimists view

I'm thinking it through, invent something new

They buried him in an unmarked grave
When he was out of fashion
Now I'm here in a hall full of books with my name in neon
