Biography

DYK


Do you know, named, as DYK
is a rock band formed in 2015. The band utilized a broad sound spectrum with a
mix in between guitars and synthesizers.


The core of the band is the
rhythm section, where members JE Zerpa
(drums, percussion) & Oscar Fanega
(bass guitar, backing vocals) build their compositions.


DYK
started as a production project rather than a live band, where all initial
compositions and ideas came from a garage studio in the city of Deerfield
Beach, FL, late in 2014. Writer/Producer and Drummer, JE Zerpa composed a
series of arrangements and ideas, reflecting and tackling political and social
issues, and daily reality among the average people. Music could be
the best platform to symbolize social topics because rhythm and melody touch
more than representing it by simple words.  


DYK
present best by its lyrics and composition, which reveals the bitter realities
of life in a beautiful way for being bothered. They make people to think that
how their lives are going worse because of their own selves.


DYK
released their debut album, World Without Face, in 2016, incorporated rock, pop
and electronic elements, influenced by 1980s groups such as The Police, Rush,
Peter Gabriel, Depeche Mode, among others, creating an eclectic sound.


The vocal member (singer),
known as the GHOST, brings a final and unique style with flair of Brian Johnson
and Scott Weiland, able to cut through the sound coming from distortions and
the rest of the band.


The GHOST, vocalist,
produces such a rock sound which can’t be challenged. His beat for rock music
comes mainly from a rhythm and blues. He gives the hidden words of society a
new life by his voice providing a strong base.

Lyrics

ALL CRIMINALS

Written By: JE Zerpa

VERSE I
Walking this morning
Green fields are all in flames and long gone
Blue skies are red now
We did this to ourselves

There is no time to blame
Collect our prize and no complaint
By our own actions
Will learn to live in hell

Destroy
Kill
Hate
Faith
Religions
Lies
Drugs
Shame
Green fields in flames
Blue skies are all in red

CHORUS
How much time
We think is left
For us to learn
Our planet is almost dead

How much more
We have to take
Away from earth
The end is almost there

VERSE II
Here comes the war
Forget the laws destroy the earth
Won’t see the signs
The floods, the rain, the earth complains

By GOD we kill
We feel the breath of empty space
All God’s are dead
The way of modern men

Destroy
Kill
Hate
Faith
Religions
Lies
Drugs
Shame
Green fields in flames
Blue skies are all in red

STATE OF MIND

Written By: JE Zerpa

VERSE I
Brand new day,
Strangers
In creatures, perhaps without face
Another day,
The streets and
The traffic,
They all do the same

There’s not one reaction,
There’s not even action
In perfect distraction,
Is no one to blame?

Collect and extraction,
Your money by fraction
In other transaction,
The boss play the game

Just the same,
Tomorrow our troubles beginning again

Stop this game,
Tear down all the walls and breaking away

CHORUS
Breaking it down, breaking it down
I can’t take this anymore
Above the lies, the rules, the drugs
Every dream under control
Taking the pill, excuses at will
Shine that light upon your soul
Breaking it down, breaking it down
Be yourself and free your soul!!!

THE PROCRASTINATOR

Written By: JE Zerpa

VERSE I
Ohh tell me
How much more you have to wait friend?
To make the changes
Leaving behind
Turn the page
And break that big wall

Ohh tell me
What’s the problem for today friend?
Is everybody?
Setting a trap
Same excuse from yesterday

PRE
Do not pretend
For me to like it
Sit around
Waiting in vain for nothing
Is everybody setting a trap?
Lame excuse from yesterday
Another day
For you to trash
Speculate and always late
Behind
Premeditate and kill the time
Same excuse from yesterday, friend?

CHORUS I
I am always looking for excuses for tomorrow
Feel free to wait, and pray
And I think is not too late
Here come my talent
You must wait for me in sorrows
I shut an open gate
And I think is not too late

VERSE II
Ohh tell me
What’s the problem for today friend?
Stay away
And don’t come back
Take that game
And move away now

PRE
Do not pretend
For me to like it
Sit around
Waiting in vain for nothing
Is everybody setting a trap?
Lame excuse from yesterday
Another day
For you to trash
Speculate and always late
Behind
Premeditate and kill the time
Lame excuse from yesterday, friend?

CHORUS II (bis)
I am always looking for excuses for tomorrow
Feel free to wait, and pray
And I think is not too late
Here come my talent
You must wait for me in sorrows
I shut an open gate
And I think is not too late

DRIVING AND CRASHING

Written By: JE Zerpa

VERSE I
Driving and crashing
Red lights are coming
Is all for money, is not for glory

Existence and meaning
Absolutely nothing
Is all for money, is not for glory

Walking and running and
Creeping and cheating
Is all for money, this is my story

Screaming and breathing
Against each other
Is all for money, this is our story

CHORUS
We are rushing
For money
Forgetting
Who you really are

VERSE II
Fighting, screaming
Stuck in this trap
Is all for money, is not for glory

Go faster keep rushing
I’m not even closer
Is all for money, is not much money

Like enemies
Driving metallic machines
Is all for money, this is my story

The bullies ahead
Is the 9 to 5!
Is all for money, this is our story

LIES

Written By: JE Zerpa

VERSE I
Running and burning
Looking for compassion?
Outrageous ambition
And dissatisfaction

Remember the crimes
Remember all sins
They all comes alive
Right under your skin

PRE-CHORUS
Running and running
From justice
Rich, poor and faith
Will mean nothing

CHORUS
You are running away
Nowhere to scape
Crashing and falling
And drifting away
Try to pretend
And stop the game
Feeling the rage
You just like the pain
And crashing, and falling, and drifting away

VERSE II
For the final day
As the night comes down
Red skies just like hell
Is the final count?

No one will be safe
No more light and day
The dust will remain
Dark skies, all in flames

Maybe you can change this to:

Dark cities in flames

MEMORIES

Written By: JE Zerpa

VERSE
Take me back on time
Take those tears away
Bring those moments back
Make me smile again

Break this sad routine
From this boring life
Let me see those days
Being green and wild

Whoooo Whoooo
Whoooo Whoooo

CHORUS
When ever you feel down
In sorrows or pain
Remember those days
Surrounded by friends

Take the bad
Take it all
And put it away

Remember the time
With someone that cares

Turn the page around
Lift your self from the ground,
Don’t ever let someone
To take that away

Bring those memories out
Forget all that pain
Is free to remember
And feeling OK

THE OPPORTUNIST

Written By: JE Zerpa

VERSE I
Like a God I’ll give you love
See the smile but not the soul
Like the shadow
Like the devil
At the end I’ll take it all
For days to come
I’ll pretend to be
The good friend
You count for all
But you never believe
When the time will come
I will crush you
Abuse you
Destroy you
For nothing more than envy

I will use you
Accuse you
Seduce you
For nothing more than envy
Addictive, Convincing
Deceiving, Mischieving
For days to come
I’ll pretend to be
The good friend
You count for all

CHORUS
I am
The one
In constant adaptation
Best friend
Pretend
No shame
Never stop to rest

VERSE II
Like an angel I‘ll give hope
Someone told me I’m the whore
The freeloader
The gold digger
I will trick you and move on

For days to come
I’ll pretend to be
The good friend
You count for all
But you never believe
When the time will come
I will crush you
Abuse you
Destroy you
For nothing more than envy
I will use you
Accuse you
Seduce you
For jealously envy
Addictive, Convincing
Deceiving, Mischieving
For days to come
I’ll pretend to be
The good friend
You count for all
