"The Leibniz Language" as written by and Teresa Suarez....
Hair, you're gone
Your hair is done
Ma'am, your child is grown
You're old

Bruno was a classic

Leg, you're pale
Your hair is made of legs
Ma'am, your leg is pale
You're done

Bruno was a classic

There is no relation
Between soul and body
Your heart was my mouth
And your mouth was my planet
Help me, put me back together
Help me, put me back together

Hair, you can't do math
Do math, do math, ooh, ooh, ooh

Bruno was a classic

There is no relation
Between soul and body
Your heart was my mouth
And your mouth was my planet
Help me, put me back together
Help me, put me back together
Help me, put me back together
Help me, put me back together
Help me, put me back together
Help me, put me back together

I never knew you
I never knew you
I never knew you
I never knew you

I'm sick of never being able to get to anyone
Not even you, no, no, no, not even you
We look at each other in the eye
We smile at one another
But it's always the same thing
We never even know each other's name

I never knew you, no, no
I never knew you
I never knew you, no, no
I never knew you
I never knew you, no no
I never knew you
I never knew you, no no
I never knew you
I never knew you, oh
I never knew you

    Song MeaningBruno (1548-1600) was a mathematician who was considered a martyr by later mathematicians for his belief in the existence of a plurality of worlds and other opinions contrary to the catholic church.

    Leibniz (1646-1716) was a mathematician who discovered infinitesimal calculus independent from Newton (1642-1727). Leibniz notation uses a long S to denote integrals, while Newton developed convenient notation for first and second-order derivatives known as dot notation. Leibniz managed to publish his theories earlier than Newton by nine years.

    Calculus involves the act of slicing things up and putting them back together. A planet is composed of many hearts.

    As a whole, this song could be interpreted as a monologue by Leibniz to Newton. The punctuation of "Bruno was a classic!!!" a reference to prior art, and its abruptness could reflect the tension added by the accusation of plagiarism. The chorus seems to describe the different perspectives from which the two mathematicians approached their theories of calculus, and bemoans the fact that Leibniz had a difficult time reestablishing himself after the plagiarism controversy.
