Lyrics:
I've never seen a happy fly
My goal's become: before I die
To look an insect in the eye
And say: "Ah, that's your purpose!"

...

Mosquitos live a sorry life- They take and take and take all day.
They don't keep lesser bugs away.
I wonder: What's their purpose?

...

Awe, Lady Bugs are cute
I guess
They eat my fruit
And leave a mess
A Sharp rebuke
For sloppy guests-
I know not what's their purpose

This lyrics is Very classy. It's unpredictable. No one can ever think it can go this way. This is a good song as well. And the artwork means another thing entirely. Good work.

$heavysounds, YOU are the classy one 100%. This is a picture of the famous Utilitarian JS Mill: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stuart_Mill#Utilitarianism

It basically says that "one must always act so as to produce the greatest aggregate happiness among all sentient beings"

What about bugs?????
Thanks, man!
