The Lyrics

In a world of ever-increasing darkness, when faith is on the ebb, one man will strike back with a bunch of silliness! DISCLAIMER: Dylan Baranski GmbH does not encourage the consumption of insects unless cooked or something. Improperly-prepared insects taste bad & are liable to cause illness and/or death.

A-HEM! That aside, enjoy the parody! DKTOS? (WARNING: Explicit content!)

Dylan - Time's sure fun when you're having flies! You are no fly-by-night parodist. Keep it up...I''ve got my (compound) eyes on you! (Incredibly funny...Merry Christmas!) ;D
