Tenacious D - Quantum Leap Lyrics




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

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

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

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

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 fucking annals of time
Quantum 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, leap, leap, leap
Sleep

    Can you please upload 5 needs?

  8. erico1st

    What happened to the upload of 5 Needs? I recently lost my drive so I'm building up my library with my old songs again, and I'm pretty sure I got Quantum Leap, Rivers of Brown, AND 5 Needs from this channel.. but only the first 2 of the bonus tracks are here :(

    One of their best

  12. yo boi hitcho

    BUT SOMETIMES WHEN YOU GO OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE YOU MIGHT FIND SOMETHING BRAND NEEEWWW TO HELP THE HUUUUUUMAAAAANS LEAP

  13. bartman535

    If anyone has the Complete Masterworks 2 DVD, they actually sing a little bit of this during the end credits. I guess it would be considered a demo of sorts, but it's a bit crazy to think this shit had been in the works since 2007.

  17. ThePowerOfEquality432

    I know these lyrics are funny, but I think the lyrical message is much deeper. You've got to be unique and be creative or else the human race won't evolve, and sometimes when you try new things you're actually helping the human race and the future generations. Crazy.

    Hamstercow

    I think you are looking too deep into a tenacious D song

    I mean, it wouldn't be the first time a D track had meaning beyond it just being funny.

    James Tocher

    I fucking love the D. They specifically do the opposite of taking themselves seriously, but they still actually engage you fully with their songs and make you feel what they're singing about. I just... I can't even. They are my spirit animals.

    Brendan Beatty

    @Hamstercow it goes deeper than anyone can know

  18. RedYellow Blue

    I seriously can't believe this didn't make the album instead of Rock is Dead and 39

    Paul MacMillan

    RedYellow Blue i think 39 is pretty killer but i like mature strange so thats probably why

    dogpetdog

    39 is definitely one of weakest songs and it just goes on and on

    dogpetdog

    rock is dead is just fine

    Brendan Beatty

    They can't give away the game to everyone

    Martyn Rogers

    Rock is dead is frickin awesome 😂🤘

  19. Sinaeris

    This is one hell of a bonus track. Might be one of their better songs imo

    TheSauron99

  23. Guirosalen

    that fenix

  24. Diego McArthur

    This is in my opinion one of their best songs, I really wish was on the album.

  25. Leloy

    This fenix is a dick o_o

    CrystalController

    and thats what is rizing :P

    cory_i

    Insert Nic Cage here.

    Chris Wallin

    @cory_i You stole it right out of my mouth lol.

    Chris Wallin

    I figured that was obvious when the single was out lol xD

    Urethral Implosion

    rize of the fenix
    size of the penis

  26. Chard O'Mania

    Dr. Drew didn't make a quantum leap; I think he's just a plain old corporate status-quo douchebag.

    Mike utubesux

    That's the joke

    Brendan Beatty

    @Mike utubesux it's not a joke

  27. AshtimusPrime

    One of the best bonus tracks ever.

  28. Daniel

    it sure took you long enough to figure that out xD

  29. minemoinscraft

    It's true !!!

  30. Andreu Martí

    That's because it's the D

    Yep, it's the only reason

  31. minemoinscraft

    WAIT A MINUTE !!!!! IT'S A FUCKING DICK !!!! NOT A BIRD

    Sam Maloney

    It's a tenacious D

  32. Timothy McGorry

    They're right! People do have to think outside 'The Bun!'..."To Be The Best" is still the greatest song off this album! :)

    I feel like the "TRAVELING IN TUBES"/City Hall issue is still quite relevant to Quantam Leap. I mean...idie cred is hard? They make this shit look easy. :)

  33. 10litai

    if master exploder were to be 10 seconds longer the world would implode

  34. akabigtimer

    some make lyrics

  35. Sancho Stewart

    A lot of stinky poooooo

  36. TheOwenige

    Quantum, lee lee lee lee

  37. choeuchkin

    Reminds me of classic D. Fuck a ding dong.

  38. Charity Wattenburger

    Sounds like they are saying Quantum Lee

  39. m ・ ́ω・

    A very sad world.

  40. Chaz Devlin

    That's a phoenix?! Mind? Blown...

  41. Lucas' Park Reviews

    How are people so stupid to think that the cock shaped Phoenix wasn't on purpose? Fuck its so obvious.

  42. Jorge Henrique Posses

    tenacious best band ever.

  43. danishcarrot

    Yeah, I think pretty much everyone has seen that by now.

  44. Sofia S

    this is so fucking good

  45. Marek W

    ludzie z całego świata jeszcze długo będą się jarać tą muzyką i tyle i jest czym :-)

  46. fojek17

    i think the tenacious D made the phoenix look like a dick on purpouse to troll people.

  47. Lazar.

    Because they fucked our asses

  48. choeuchkin

    This is by far my favorite song on the new album. It really shows that the D is taking a more serous approach to the band, regardless of the dickbird. Musically they've broken to a new level with this song, lyrically it's really deep. I think jack wanted to be alot more serous with this album and it shows. LONG LIVE THE D!!!!!

  49. ShorinRyu74

    Why does quantum leap get 4 minutes and they fucked our asses only gets a measly 1?

  50. DemonTomatoPro

    yeah, thats why I almost didn't get the shirt that had this on there... almost.

  51. Tom Whieldon

    What a good song. Wish I had know about the deluxe edition before I brought the album :)

  52. Silvan Smith

    I honestly thought I would hear a reference to the show "Quantum Leap" oh well

  53. Alec Goon

    this is actually a really good song :D

  54. Mathäus Levinthal

    how deslik this?

  55. ben gates

    why wasont this on the normal hate it when it does this.........but still amazing

  56. Doonak

    Master Exploder...

  57. Doonak

    Amerykanów nie stać na edycję Deluxe... Te dwa kawałki są całkiem zajebiste :D, zwłaszcza tekst w Rivers of Brown...

  58. jez5758

    Mark Tremonti jammed this with Kyle a while back xD

  59. choeuchkin

    the emotion in jacks voice around 2:15 - 2:29. The D is back.

  60. roosterpuke1

    This is very True

  61. POPLYRICS000

    i consider short songs 2.5 minutes or less lol

  62. zedd0rz

    What kind of ignoramus judges an albums quality by its length.

  63. andrew murtagh

    (ANSWER FOR Destructerator)
    The reason they are so short is because if THE AWESOMENESS of THE D was as long as the usual songs your head would explode

  64. TheFRENZY729

    dios dead

  65. ImaWanderer

    thanks you so much for uploading

  66. MrVici0

    why the fuck dio wasnt mean in this song?????

  67. Dio Cane

    tbh as soon as I saw the cover of a tenac D album I immediately looked for something sexual...

  68. Christian Yanez

    rise of the penis ..

  69. Chard O'Mania

    ...dr. drew is an ass. he ain't done no quantum leapin'.

  70. Pétur Freyr

    yeah that is kind of the regular length :P

  71. Colby Brewer

    your mom was a 7/10...and i'm being generous.

  72. Greeneye

    How is nearly 4 minutes "so short"?

  73. MrRonBigz

    HA! true

  74. DatBronyBassist

    The show was awesome.
    This song is awesome...er.

  75. Patrick Simpson-Munday

    Nobody thinks it. We just know it

  76. SILENTROB0123

    soooooooo nobody else thinks the fenix looks like a dick

  77. Cisco Karpe

    Uggh. Why couldn't of this have been on the regular album!!

  78. QBcrusher

    gotta wonder why it took them 6 years to make it

  79. Kerby Stieffel

    dude this album is 100/10

  80. Kerby Stieffel

    its only on it if you actuallt buy the physical album (cd) deluxe version

  81. MattBandicoot

    For some reason, I find a connection between this song and Papagenu

  82. TenaciousDPolska

    Yes, it is. On deluxe edition.

  83. Jack the lad

    iv heard tenacious d since i was 9 and they are still great

  84. Jack the lad

    this song is not on the album at all

  85. PakaGranie

    Mój ulubiony zespół

  86. beautylover96

    Go fuck yourself its a song. Believe it or not but songs arnt always gonna be 10 minutes fucking long

  87. gocsa

    What do Einstein, Shakespeare, Leonard Nimoy, Doctor Drew, Bell Biv DeVoe, François Truffaut, Moses, and Tenacious D have in common? They all made the Quantum Leap!

  88. David G

    try to remeber how old you were when you first heard the D. I was 14 when i first heard them rock the shit out of "Double Team Supreme." Now here i am 8 years later and that first magical feeling will never be recreated by any band, ever. Plus, the shock value is gone. you just have to appreciate this album for what it is. A damn fine example of 2 Rock Gods spooging magic into your ears.

  89. Jason

    this song is longer than average lol

  90. Tomás Kipreos

    lol, the phoenix looks like a penis

  91. Chris Doran

    I dont see how they have gone more commercial? they have always recorded catchy run simple songs and have always been quite big and all so a Hollywood movie cant get much more commercial than that lol

    But to be fair the D always have and always will be awesome

  92. CornyTelecaster49

    Everyone noticed that you moron

  93. TheMaggot4life666

    POD and the first album, are better in my opinion probally since ive been listening them since long and its a different vibe especially since they brought in a bunch of new fans with this and its just different.

    and those bunch of new fans include douchebags who go too a concert and than say ha jeezz I never really listenend the first 2 albums before or saw the movie, fragging idiots.

    O yeah D rocks! too bad theyve gone more commercial....

  94. TheMaggot4life666

    What you talking about its not a penis its a bird man a mighty fenix, penis wheres this guy getting it from pffff

  95. steveirwin06

    this doesn't have anything due with the show I don't think

  96. FenixDown147

    omg, subliminal messaging

    -lol i saw the album cover on itunes first... it was all blurred out lol
