about

"Singer/songwriter Joe Darone artfully blends harmonic indie pop and angular hard rock into a beautifully brooding, complex, and arresting sonic whole with his supremely moody third album. Exploring the many facets of human consciousness in a smart, incisive, and provocative manner, Darone takes the listener on an absorbing aural journey that chugs along at a gradual, hypnotic clip. Darone’s soothing vocals and smart songwriting make for a potent double whammy while the shimmering arrangements keep things tuneful throughout. The calmly reflective sensibility provides an extra intelligent quality. Excellent stuff." - Joe Wawrzyniak, JerseyBeat.com

“a box full of sparkling little treasures, enough to delight even the most jaundiced ear... a beautiful and painstakingly crafted piece of work.” - instrumentali.com

"Delicate with a dark side that’s covered by rainbows & butterflies; the new record from Suit of Lights is an introspective and mesmerizing journey of sounds and sensibility." - rocknrollexperience.com

"A brilliant cornucopia of pop driven melodies and unpredictable musical arrangements...a perfect package of genre defying indie tunes." - ellenwood-ep.com

Track Name: Stay With Us
STAY WITH US

Look at the people, so lost and sad and scared.
We float through the ceiling, into the night air.
If you don’t get born, you won’t be bothered with dying.

Stay with us.
Stay with us.

Avoid the temptation of physical incarnation.
There ain’t no salvation in that aberration.
There are clearly bugs in the super-simulation.
Won’t you stay with us?
Stay with us.
Track Name: Shine On Forever
SHINE ON FOREVER

Every atom of ours are pieces of collapsed stars.
And nothing matters to us, because we’re made of stardust.

We burn the candle at both ends -
it gives a heavenly light.
We shine on forever at the ending of time.

Tell me, do you remember?
How to be fully divine and
shine on forever in eternal light.

We shine on. Forever.
Track Name: Song Within A Song
SONG WITHIN A SONG

I’m not for this world, I’ve lost all illusion.
There doesn’t have to be a reason.
I love the clouds with no destinations.
Except lookin’ at the seasons.

Tell me again when we’re older.
That shouldn’t take long.
Tell me again when it’s over.
Song within a song.

Cha. Cha. Cha.

When you see dogs play, do you ask for meaning?
There doesn’t have to be an answer.
Who is your God and is he intervening?
Underachiever.

Tell me again when we’re older.
That shouldn’t take long.
Tell me again when it’s over.
Song within a song.
Track Name: All Roads Lead Home
ALL ROADS LEAD HOME

Drop out, or join the race.
Either way.
It’s all the same at the end of the day.
It’s all a game that everyone likes to play.

Look and see - none of this matters.
None of this is real.
Burn up the ashes and scatter.

New York or New Year - let it go.
You gotta know that all the roads lead home.

Look and see - none of this matters.
None of this is real.
Burn up the ashes and scatter.

All roads lead home.
Track Name: Another World
ANOTHER WORLD

When the light don’t work at all
And you can’t make out the clock on the wall
And you cannot count the fingers on a hand
That’s when you feel that you just might be dreaming

There are things that I will never know much about
like if it ever means something
to ask why we were here before
the start of another world.
Track Name: Everyone Is Happy Now
EVERYONE IS HAPPY NOW

Now tell me again.
The story about our original sin.
How knowledge brought about the fall of man.
Creating all the fire from within.
That set ablaze.

Always smile babe,
and never wear a frown.
Everyone is happy now.

Now, where to begin?
The time before is hard to comprehend.
The depths that man allowed himself to descend.
But we’ll make sure it never happens again.
We have our ways.....

Close your eyes babe,
as Mother will allow.
Everyone is happy now.
Track Name: Paint In Blood
PAINT IN BLOOD

A banquet hall lies still.
The guests have gone.
And only in my mind, the laughter echoes on.

A blinding shaft of light.
Price on my head.
A shift from light to dark.
From fame, to exile, and death.

Black pigment made from a charred skeleton.
My canvas is a world of paint and blood.
My canvas is a world of paint and blood.
Track Name: Fate Keeps Calling
FATE KEEPS CALLING

Can you find in the brief story of time,
‘belief’ spelled without ‘lie’?
The vacant look behind their eye.
Are they calling it freedom?

Fate keeps calling me: Come on home.
As the fakes keep falling apart.
And it’s a fate worth following,
following your heart.

Still mankind can break the chains that bind.
A play to free your mind.
Not ‘til the last king and priest have died are we calling it freedom.

Fate keeps calling me: Come on home.
As the fakes keep falling apart.
And it’s a fate worth following,
following your heart.

Created ill, and ordered well.
So proudly we fail.
Salvation is promised, at the low price of your critical faculties.
Cutting through the calendar, me and my arrow.
It’s up to you to take a part. Creating tomorrow.
Track Name: The Human Beings
THE HUMAN BEINGS

Well, they finally came down from the trees.
Then, along came the wheel and industry.
Now there’s war after war and they kill themselves!
Tell me what are they doing now?

Well, they poisoned the air and poisoned the cloud
and they poisoned the water and poisoned the ground.
Tell me what in the world are they doing now?
Tell me what are the human beings doing -

Now it will be done.
Yes, that time is drawing near.
Now they got a bomb that can burn the atmosphere.
Now they got a bomb.
Now they got a bomb.
Now they got a problem.

So they blackened the earth and blackened the ground.
Now you’re not gonna find one of them around.
Tell me what in the world were they thinking of,
when they made the human being creature up!
