"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 humanity's obstinance

You argue much, don't get along
you seem to try to do everything alone
but who needs to speak in our society
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
secretions quiet and dependable

Altruism is our way
each alone we do not have so much to say
we're individuals in a community
one hundred forty million years we've been this way

With wisdom and ingenuity
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...
we get things done

We get things done...
we get things done

We get things done...
we get things done

We get things done.

    General CommentI think this song is about ants.
    The cover art vaguely looks like an ant, and a google search reveals that ants have existed for 140 million years. also most will know ants live in a community and all the song lyrics indicate this.
    if it isn't just about ants, the song seems to me to be heavily related to ants in some way.
