about

Glass Apple Bonzai Toronto, 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: Starlite (Extended Mix)
We could walk a thousand miles into the darkness of our hearts
As the tragedy of philosophy will tear us all apart
But they won't know us the way they think we do
The winter fears will show that we're lonely and we know it's true
Inside we're Starlite

At the end of all the trials as we are reaping what we've sewn
Is this our destiny, this fantasy? We're trying everything we know
But they won't save us the way they think we should
A million saviours on the wings of this mystery that so hauntingly resides in Starlite

In the memories of the longest fights
From the oldest light of the coldest nights and shadows that we came
And to our own delight, if story's right, it's in the fire light that we're made
We're Starlite
Track Name: Beyond the Twilight (V.2)
In disbelief under shadowed night
Without the fear that we're losing the fight
As the failures of life are turning the sky to grey

But in the dark, in the dead of night
There lies a beast feeding all of your spite
In the faintest of light you're hearing it call your name
And it won't go away

The fire and light burning bright from inside of the soul
[Any way we choose to go]
The devil resides in the silence that hides in us all
[Any way you choose to follow]
And it's so dark that you can't see it
It won't be long 'til you believe it
There's something there, outside, beyond the twilight

And as we're faced with the living end
We run and hide and we try to pretend
But we can't deny that we're here to die, my friend
And if you think that you'll see the day
With all the lies that will make it the same
You stay in the light, But you'll never find the way
And it won't be OK

The fire and light burning bright from inside of the soul
[Any way we choose to go]
The devil resides in the silence that hides in us all
[Any way you choose to follow]
And it's so dark that you can't see it
It won't be long 'til you believe it
There's something there, outside, beyond the twilight

As the fire lights the darkened sky
In the distance...a pair of eyes
And as the flames slowly burn out into the hallowed ground
The silence is so profound

The fire and light burning bright from inside of the soul
[Any way we choose to go]
The devil resides in the silence that hides in us all
[Any way you choose to follow]
And it's so dark that you can't see it
It won't be long 'til you believe it
There's something there, outside, beyond the twilight
(And who could it be that's waiting out there alone in the night?)
Beyond the Twilight
(And what could it be that's hiding out there alone in the night?)
Beyond the Twilight
(And where could it be? it's standing out there alone in the night)
Beyond the Twilight
(Who can it be that found a way to resist the whole world?)
Track Name: The Fire (SDS Demo Mix)
[Carl Sagan:] The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. On this shore we've learned most of what we know. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from and we long to return...and we can. Because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star stuff.
We are a way for the cosmos to know its own.

With a mystery we're discovering that we don't believe that we've come from mists of afar
In our solitude is the suffering, that it's been so long since we fell from the edge of the stars

Now there's something else in this tragedy. Is it possible that we'll ever be free?
With the silent tears and a fire that burns nothing left to decide as the victims of life
Run away from the world

(Whatever descends on the wings of the stars
Whatever descends on the wings from afar
As the fire breathes)

[Carl Sagan:] The lives and depths of the stars seem impossibly remote from human experience and yet we're related in the most intimate way. The very matter that makes us up was generated in red giant stars

Though we don't know the ending, we know that it's true
As the light is descending it will bring something new

(Whatever descends on the wings from afar
Whatever descends on the wings of the stars
As the fire breathes)
