about

A classic physical problem. From "Epiphany at Mount D".

lyrics

just one body is no problem at all
it don't go right or left, it don't rise and it don't fall
straight as an arrow through the small and the tall
just one body changes nothing at all

the two body problem is easy to solve
every mother and her children know what is involved
around each other two will revolve
the two body problem is a cinch to resolve

but it's the three body problem that is on my mind
no-one can predict just who will survive
one might be ejected, maybe two will collide
the three body problem is what's on my mind


just one body is a often a bore
add a second body and you will find out the score
a two body system follows gravity's law
and will orbit forever 'til you add one body more

but it's the three body problem that is bothering me
you simply cannot tell what will happen with three
every one's in motion but no-one is free
the three body problem is what's bothering me

the three body problem is what's on my mind
no-one can predict just who will survive
one might be ejected, maybe two will collide
the three body problem is what's on my mind
