Argamae Night Maze is another proof of Glass Apple Bonzai being a perfect combination of great retro synths and excellent vocals. And that's something you'll not often find. Favorite track: Night Maze.

DJ Home Movies Retrowave that hits VERY close to actual nu-wave, just with the addition of better production quality. Glass Apple Bonzai have been at the beginning of the synth renaissance, so it's no surprise that they continue to be. With that said, their second is definitely a step-up from their first works in terms of sound, and so I hope they continue to build their way up to the stars! Favorite track: Blue Satellite.

Night Maze 05:12
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)
3.
I Can't Feel 04:22
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)
4.
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
5.
The Stars 04:59
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)

"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."

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

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...

I Don't Mind 04:06
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)

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
