Stay with Us 02:26
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
2.
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
3.
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
4.
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
5.
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
6.
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
7.
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
8.
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
9.
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!

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
