"Community" as written by and Roger/d'errico Atkins....
You have but two, we have six.
We can use them to such great accomplishment.
The sum of all, all of us all
outweighs humanities obstinance.

You argue much, don't get along,
you seem to try to do everything alone.
But who needs to speak in our socieity?
We take advantage of our pheromones.

We communicate with chemicals,
but this is not, as you might think, just mechanical.
It's an expressive art, instinctually smart.
Secretion's quiet and dependable.

Altruism is our way.
Each alone, we do not have so much to say.
We're individuals in a community.
140 million years we've been this way.

With wisdom and ingeniuty,
we outwit so much larger adversaries.
We symbolize this treasured prize,
buried deep within the human psyche.

Between order and instability,
we thrive on this beautiful complexity.
We regulate our density,
emerge in the social biology.

We get things done.

    General CommentYeah, this song seems to be pretty straightforward. It's an homage to ants.

    Really pretty, though. Very simple, and a good song to get you into the tone of the album.
