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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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!
