about

Glass Apple Bonzai Ontario

Glass Apple Bonzai is the solo synthpop / synthwave project of the illustrious Daniel X. Belasco of Defence Mechanism.
A sonic trip into the darker, moodier parts of the 1980's synth movement.
Aptly titled "Depressionwave" by some random person on the internet.
If you like the 80's then you'll like this, honest.

Track Name: Night Maze
on this blue satellite
i'm staring straight into the night
reading messages of tragedies

so many things to deny
all out of place and out of mind
an illusion of a fake possibility

(chorus)
to find that place where i belong
where everything won't feel so wrong
(i feel alone, all the life has gone)

and maybe once i find a way
and i will see the light some day
(i feel alone, in this night maze)

with every foolish delight
i try to hide the endless fight
and if i only knew the remedy

so elegantly designed
enumeration of ten thousand lies
as the walls surround me with false insecurities

(chorus)

there's only you and i
exchanging lies through the night
the fading memory
has brought me down to my knees
and i'll never know for sure
how many nights i can endure

i try to run from it all
with every turn - a higher wall
and now i'm lost inside eternity

a thousand fires alight
burning higher and higher into the night
as i drift alone into dark serenity

(chorus)
Track Name: I Can't Feel
i can't believe it
it's a lie
i keep it all so deep inside
in the darkest places of my soul

and if you see it
keep in mind
it's something that i need to hide
and if i let it out it's all my fault

(chorus)
i think i've said this a million times
but i can't feel
your soul awakened my broken mind
but i can't feel
i must've said this a million times
but i can't feel
your soul awakened my broken mind
and i can't feel

i cannot feel right
awoken lies
i see the light shine
into my eyes

stoke up fire when you see it
never mind what you might believe
and i sympathise with everything

you can feel right in the wild
running through your own desires
as though you're free to walk in the arms of the lord

(chorus)
Track Name: An Astrophysicist Love Story I
awaken to the feeling
it's time to bring you home
we've been apart for far too long

a tired sense of being
without you by my side
this life apart has felt so wrong

and maybe once i know the way
to bring you back to me someday
a chance in life for me to show
the love for you inside my soul

a million miles away and
i though i'd never see
the brightest smile i've ever known

i think i've found the answer
to our lonely cries
a grand machine to bring you home

i'm trying everything i can
the right design. the perfect plan
i'll harness everything i know
and build a machine to bring you home

a thousand different starry nights
and traveling on a beam of light

i flip the switch - i know i'm right
the programs starts - a flash of light
i close my eyes and hope and pray
this grand machine will save the day

it brought you home to me today
Track Name: The Stars
just one more chance
i take the blame
for treating everything just the same
and even though i know you're not that way

but here i am, once again
drifting foolishly through the days
just one more time...

the silent fear
a cross to bear
so mystified by lies and despair
and everything i thought i'd know by now

treading lightly among those stars
as tragedies will unfold
and i see...
a solemn life

(chorus)
with hearts on fire and a sullen attitude
a moonlit night on the shores of the light from afar
and we will overcome these complications
cause we will always have the moon and the stars

and i will wait for you til the end
i don't know, and i don't care
however long it takes for you to decide

and i'll never go away so far
you'll never see me here again
i'll never go away

(chorus)
Track Name: The Legend of the Anti-God
"This is crazy..."

"Suppose what your faith has said is essentially correct. Suppose there is a universal mind controlling everything. A God willing the behaviour of every sub-atomic particle. It's mirror image. This negative side. Maybe this universal mind resides in the mirror image instead of in our universe as we wanted to believe. Maybe he's anti-God, bringing darkness instead of light. Without the technology to confirm it would have been another legend."
Track Name: Dancing on the Moon
I could sense that you don't realise
The fictions everyone will spin
I could sense at the time that you don't realise
How the fears and the lies begin

As we're waiting for the sun to rise again
We're dancing on the moon
and raising the tides, ok
And we'll never figure out another way
'cause we're dancing on the moon
And changing the tides, ok

The next time that you get the feelings
And you want to give in
You can't believe all the signs
Now you're losing your mind
And this is how it begins

As we're waiting for the sun to rise again
We're dancing on the moon
and raising the tides, ok
And we'll never figure out another way
'cause we're dancing on the moon
And changing the tides, ok
And we're waiting for the sun to shine again
While we're dancing on the moon
And losing our minds, ok

As we're waiting for the sun to rise again
We're dancing on the moon
and raising the tides, ok
And we'll never figure out another way
'cause we're dancing on the moon
And changing the tides, ok
And we're waiting for the sun to shine again
While we're dancing on the moon
And losing our minds, ok
Track Name: The Edge of Morrow
The light begins to fade
And seep into the shadows
The fate of everything you said
Is hanging from the gallows
But you don't believe in anything
And the only way you see it
In the time it takes to make the change
and you hope we can achieve it

You see those stars?
On the edge of morrow?
If you took it all now
And filled your cup of sorrow
You're terrified of everything
You stare into forever
For you could never go so far
And walk into the never

You're wasting all this time
By counting down to nothing
You have no reason why
To think that it's not coming
The fires, they are burning bright
And your mind is full of science
And you run but you can never hide
And the streets are full of violence

It's in the stars
On the edge of morrow
If you took it all now
And filled your cup of sorrow
You're terrified of everything
You stare into forever
For you could never go so far
And walk into the never

If you could take the time
To tell us all a story
Of how we all survive
This endless sea of worry
But we don't believe in anything
And that's, that's the way we see it
In the time it takes to make the change
We hope we can achieve it

And all those stars
On the edge of morrow
You can taken'm all now
And fill your cup of sorrow
You're terrified of everything
You're staring to forever
And you could never go so far
And walk into the never

You can walk into the never...
Track Name: I Don't Mind
Another time, now we're living our lives away
There's no one here and there's no one left to blame
in your eyes

You're lying here in your old disguise
The number one ever lasting surprise

(maybe I don't mind)
Maybe I don't mind
Maybe I don't mind
Maybe I...

A mist of fire at the end of the days to go
You're mystified by the end so long ago
And I count to three

You're visualising your own diguise
The shape of a mind with the answers to find...
Ok

(maybe I don't mind)
Maybe I don't mind
Maybe I don't mind
Maybe I...

And you collapse as you think of ways of old
You'll never believe the lust in all the world
That I see in the light

You stare at me with your X-Ray eyes
Your number one ever lasting surprise

(maybe I don't mind)
Maybe I don't mind
Maybe I don't mind
Maybe I...

(here we are once again in the dark
as we're waiting for the sun to illuminate everyone)
(here we are once again in the dark
as we're waiting for the sun to illuminate what we've become)
Track Name: Blue Satellite
A seasoned love, and foolish hands will show the way
And the tired songs - the disease of a modern life
Could you show me, or make sense of a light so far away
As the seasons are alight and then blow away

We're on this blue satellite
And it's all the same for us
Though we might fall out of line
And awaken fear inside
And we can live for another way
And make it through on time
To see the light yet another day
This time

And you can see the silence blow the world away
But i don't know how , how to fight in the solemn life

But you know me
and you know that I don't know where to go
As the seasons of the light throw it all away
