"We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" as written by and O'quin Beschta....
As we creep along
The beat from our wings keeps us humming
To the buzz of our hives requiem
This goes with right away
Our queen is filled with eggs
And thats just the worker instinctively feeding me

So if this beast wants something sweet some may go down after the sting
We rape the nectar from patches deep
'Cause if it tastes like honey then it must be sweet

We're working hard one hundred
And fifty-four
Trips to shit out just a few teaspoons
Of a delicious excrement

So sing along to our queens five year epilogue
And at the end of the breeding day
Regurgitate
All the shit that we ate
'Cause if it tastes like honey then it must be sweet

Don't you mind the fact you're not breathing?
Just keep feeding the ones we'll be needing

Don't you mind the fact you're not breathing?
Just keep feeding the ones we'll be needing

We keep flying off
But we crawl right back
We keep flying off
But we crawl right back

Cause when you're this small! (anything can crush you)
When you're this poor! (anything can squish you)
When you're this small! (anything can crush you)

Heres a glass for a colony greater than death
My blistered hands my blistered hands they soak
Heres a glass for a colony greater than death
My blistered hands my blistered hands

We're working hard one hundred
And fifty-four
Trips to shit out just a few teaspoons
We're working hard one hundred
And fifty-four
Trips to shit out just a few teaspoons

    General CommentI think it's a little more complicated than madskie made it seem. I take it as it's about the average American life, especially about work. If you look at it, it really makes sense.

    Working hard just to produce something small.

    Working hard even though the queen bee is already "fat" (wealthy).

    They're comparing the hive of bees, essentially, to the "hive" of the United States and similar 1st world countries.

    General CommentI think "Don't you mind the fact you're not breathing" should be a sentence. Not a question.
