VERSE 1:

Bm          F#
Since the beginning of time
Bm          F#
There had to be a man with a plan
Bm       F#   Bm    F#
To push man, forward
Bm                 F#    Bm             F#
There was a caveman who, invented wheels
Bm                    F#            Bm     F#
And with those wheels he pushed man forward

G                             F#
Someone had to come up with a new concept for life
G                             F#
Had to push the mighty rock upon the mountain top


VERSE 2:

Bm             F#
Got to work it out
Bm             F#
Got to think outside the box
           Bm                F#
You got to think outside the bun
Bm             F#
If you want to be the magic one
G        F#7
Who will lead the trail, blaze the rail
G                                  F#7
Be the one that you will know must be

Genius

   B  F#  C#m  F#

B         F#                   C#m              F#
Everybody looks to the hero to lead the way, to change our way of life
B          F#                C#m         F#
To show us something that is meaningful, yeah
B                    F#            C#m               F#
When you look to the hero you must seize the day and shine a ray of light
B                 F#               C#m         F#
Gotta shine it on something that is beautiful, yeah
G                   F#7
With the bravery to see, a new form of arts
G                F#7
A blazing of our consciousness, we're talking quantum leap

VERSE 3:
When you think outside the bun,
It's scary out there
There's also lots of stinky poo
But sometimes when you go outside of your comfort zone
You might find something brand new
To help the humans leap
Forward, do a simple leap
Never be they same, they leap
Across the f**king annals of time
Quantum...

CHORUS:
..leap, leap

Einstein, Shakespeare, Leonard Nimoy, Doctor Drew
Bell Biv DeVoe, François Truffaut, Moses, Tenacious D

That's a list of the people who have made the quantum leap
It gets pretty scary out there because they got to know themselves, yeah
When you look at the people who have made the quantum leap
You feel like a turd cause you haven't accomplished anything yourselves, no
With the bravery to see, a new form of arts
A blazing of our consciousness, we're talking quantum leap

VERSE 4/OUTRO:
Leap...
Leap...
Leap...
Sleep
