Biography

I am a New York based visual artist. A painter and sculptor who has had numerous solo and group shows, one of which being a museum survey in 2003. Lately been playing out in the city as a singer songwriter, write music all the time, the songs tend to come out of the ether in tact with all their poetry present at the first.

Lyrics

Church of your soul

Written By: Darius Yektai

I stood outside myself and promised me
by the church of your soul
I fell in love with the memories the melodies
that play from above
and don't you remember it
I've been holding my sentiments
I told you everything about the clouds on my soul

Pale as you are
Pale as you been
you're loyal as the stars
you take me to Mars and let me begin

So I invited you to interest you
At the footsteps of your soul
Won't you ascend with me from Galilee
to the entrance of home
what will you share with me
I hope your sexuality
What would you sacrifice
I know it's your only vice

Pale as you are, pale as you been
pale as you were, you were pale as you sinned
pale as you are, pale as you been
you're loyal as the stars and you let me begin

And I've been on this road for some time
I have called this anguish mine
and it's an interesting thing that the fire can bring from within
And it's hot so hot round this stove
and it's hot so hot round this home

I stood outside myself and promised me
by the entrance of your soul
if this led to ecstasy would you embrace me
and welcome me home
would you then share with me your energies
and make something whole
I told you everything about the clouds on my soul

Pale as you are...

Wasting Time

Written By: Darius Yektai

I am close to the edge of the universe
And I feel empty as I sit here
Waiting for you to come.
And if time stood still, we’d still have the past to heal
We’d still have aching… breaking hearts to feel
I have come here waiting its been a long long time
I feel like crying in my hands

Come and see me I’ve been here waiting
I’ve come here watching all the years
And it feels much better than it was yesterday
I’m wasting time
I’m wasting time.
I’m wasting time

And I’m racing in the atmosphere to the edge of the universe
And if time stood still, we’d still have the past to heal.
The future would take too long, it would never come
At least while I’m singing this song.

Melody sacrifice all, television is not the answer to
All that I want, all that I needed and all that I want is you
I’m wasting time.
I’m wasting time
I’m wasting time

Crazy Town

Written By: Darius Yektai

Remember this moment
Don’t You know It’s fleeting
It won’t be here forever
Like I’ll be,
Like I’ll Be.

Hold on to Heaven, Don’t let go
Of the seven deadly sins
They were made to greet you, made to show you the way on the street you
Choose to run down
Crazy town
In this crazy town.

And crazy is as crazy does crazy fools in crazy love
Crazy hours in crazy bars and I’m still wondering who you are
I’m still wondering wondering wondering wondering who you are

Balls of light hang from the trees,
Sounds of silence floats in with the breeze,
And this smile on my face is just a memory of the chase
You and I been through
And we’re not through.

Realize heaven when it comes too
Shake off the shackles of this prelude
Let love shine in.
You let love shine in,
You let love shine in.
In this crazy town, in this crazy town,
In this crazy town, in this crazy town,

And crazy is as crazy does crazy fools in crazy love
Crazy hours in crazy bars and I’m still wondering who you are
I’m still wondering wondering wondering wondering who you are

Caroline

Written By: Darius Yektai

I don’t care.. if you don’t feel the same way
I don’t care.. if you don’t feel it
But I want you to know cuz I figured it out
The last time I saw you I figured it out

I love you Caroline
I love you Caroline
Love you Caroline

By my side By my side
By my side By my side

And it’s OK if you don’t feel the same
And it’s OK if you don’t feel it
I still want you to know because I figured it out
The last time I saw you I figured it out

Love you Caroline
I love you Caroline
Love you Caroline
By my side By my side By my side By my side
I love you by my side
And now you know now you know now you know

And I am strung up.. strung out.. strung up.. strung out .. it’s about
Strung up.. strung out.. strung up.. strung out.. it’s about
Strung up.. strung out.. strung up.. and it’s about time

And I am strung up.. strung out .. strung up.. strung out .. it’s about
Strung up.. strung out.. strung up.. strung out.. it’s about
Strung up.. strung out.. strung up.. and it’s about time

And it’s about time it’s about time by my side

Looking at You

Written By: Darius Yektai

Looking at you.. and you’re looking at me
And we’re gonna see
If we can protect us

And I’m coming at you.. and you’re coming at me
For all to see
And it’s awful crazy

And all men… the clouds come.. you’re defenseless
And the parrot tomes
The parrot tomes
Everything is on the fence and we’re gonna come

Looking at you while you’re looking at me
And we’re bound to see
How good we can be

And I’m coming at you and you’re coming at me
And all this is wrapped up in times gone crazy

And why..baby why .. did you come.. to decide
And all this hope.. to bare my soul,
I would bare you my soul

While you’re looking at me
It’s all that you said then,
this time baby

And looking at you .. you were looking at me
And it’s awful crazy
All that I wanted to be
All I wanted to be… and you were looking at me
