I N V I S I B L E B R I G H T M A N (verse 1) Invisible bright man no sister slave on the marquee my lord may seem a lifeless ghost though he'll never be quite dead to me (verse 2) Invisible bright man need a better script -rainmaker's storm unveil the end game sizzle do away with these pathetic norms its time for my biggest season... (verse 3) I'm invisible bright man. in lust with new misguided visions weeping 'cause I want out of mother's country... The sky is divine, the crow is hungry Cherish my life 'cause its only a whisper... (bridge) The heavy axe I see it falling. Random acts I feel them coming on... (chorus) Alter me I've maimed the tablature I've lost the guide posts but I'm not paranoid. I'll pass on punishment just street worship the pain Loosen my noose while no one is looking I'll just slip away... and pound the end -pound it hard. Pound the end - pound it hard. I'm Invisible bright man. Do I feel what I see? a familiar place called home as bad as bad can be. Even a blind fool can move in these shadows I'll pull up a chair and love the light with my last breath... Invisible bright man. No one else can see. I'm invisible bright man. I'm where I want to be. Invisible bright man. Lyrics and Music by Trent Gardner copyright 2007 Soul Of The Sasquatch Music, BMI
My Warrior 06:51
MY W A R R I O R (verse 1) Lonely cries and crucified tears Terror slices from darkened graves The moon cries over desperate years "every right" my warrior devils run from my warrior. (verse 2) Prayers kiss this requiem hunger grovels at feet gone before no regrets - not these young men "every right" my warrior Devils run from my warrior. (verse 3) Jesus whispers in the trenches Souls are summoned in a dark divide guts and fists - a parent clenches now my own is on his way "every right" my warrior devils run from my warrior (verse 4) Anguish sides with the innocents rain engulfs healthy marrow mortal secrets told in confidence not this time, my warrior (verse 5) Sinners howl at the nothingness spirits drink down a thirsty toll Now its selfish I must confess sweet twilight for my warrior devils pass on my warrior (verse 6) Ambush waits - Raven's last chance watch the crossfire -hold on one more day bargains made in midnight penance watch your back now, my warrior get your friends out, my warrior (chorus) No more time for their childhood toys thanks to God, and these soldier boys "every right we now enjoy" keeps the eyes of heaven crying... "Thousand yard stare" - grew up hard and fast more flags are flying here at half-mast Poured in blood - this hymn is cast... "every right" my warrior devils run from my warrior "every right" my warrior devils run hard from my warrior (bridge & outro): Take me back to the simple years you're too young to cry these tears swallow back my growing fears I'm at peace now my warrior Fate just return my warrior My child my warrior. I'll just say "thank you" to my warrior. Written by Trent Gardner Copyright 2007 Soul Of The Sasquatch Music, BMI
Innocent God 09:20
I N N O C E N T G O D (Verse 1) She saw black plague and the civil war fled the burning of Rome atomic bombs and the holocaust earth's timeless child is coming home (Verse 2) She saw massacre at Wounded Knee felt the Mississippi burning trial from the dust bowl to South Africa She is powerless in her exile (Verse 3) She saw Darwin and the Berlin Wall Utah Beach to 9/11 Science damns us now - one and all Will her endless love stop my free fall? (Verse4) On the world's stage “her good is last” We’re just victims of circumstance hear this bad news travel fast there's no changing the same old song and dance (bridge) King and Gandhi dreamt of a better day but I’m no John Brown or JFK Nature’s grand design -be as it may Her passion leaves a witness... (chorus) Child of an innocent God "free will" sown to the wind psalm of man fading and flawed mother earth and daughter embrace again Wearing the brand of Cain hear this native's perfect cry she's a daughter of the rain just watching as the world goes by... She is watching – always watching. Mother earth - just watching. Written by Trent Gardner Copyright 2007 Soul Of The Sasquatch Music, BMI
Found 06:54
F O U N D (Verse 1) Drowning on land - howlin’ at the moon I am a neo native Levees gone - Tribal storms floods hide this legacy Sacrifice coming Black clouds bring the wind rush to the higher ground Native born - I have soared Nature’s fury cries a tear (chorus 1) on my father’s land on his grandfather’s land all I see is an ocean lost my mother’s home and a grandmother’s hope still I hear them pray for this neo native (Verse 2) Pale thoughts - Proud minds Thunder rules the sky Waiting here for those green painted faces with giant wings they appear A watery tomb subsides We call this place New Orleans Native born – families torn With a grasp we can touch the sky (chorus 2) So we prayed like Job What can one place endure? Now all I feel is the water As the night draws near We’re Americans here Ivory towers hear our cry… “some are still alive” (Bridge) No sight of our brothers - Help is too far away Death surrounds us now - And it has for days Open arms in Dallas - Red Cross refugees “found”, this knave… rescued at last from an empire’s grave. (repeat both chorus) Written by Trent Gardner Copyright 2007 Soul Of The Sasquatch Music, BMI
W H O T O B E L I E V E ? (verse 1) Hear the lawyer speak all the words that he can say till the truth slips away but this same simple man years of hopeless desire finding straight answers fought fire with fire Too burned out now to be naive A laugh up his sleeve got a final reprieve (bridge) No one can see who to believe? Lost my faith in me? I can’t trust myself or anyone There's something more... (chorus) Now its time to speak of it though I can’t see where it’s coming from but when push comes to shove I’ll listen to the spirit voice of reason across the other side - I don’t understand yet somehow I know… who to believe at last I know - who to believe. (verse 2) So the priest gives in to desire - loving sin let his flesh reign again and hypocrisy rules in the presence of fools absolution his game he needs someone to blame Now anarchy washed him away The devil to pay He’s a walking cliché… (repeat bridge and chorus) Written by Trent Gardner Copyright 2007 Soul Of The Sasquatch Music, BMI
Slow Burn 04:41
S L OW B U R N (verse 1) I'm doing a slow burn I passed "tired" three years ago but its no cause for concern I'm gonna fight this undertow (verse 2) I've never been more alive "All to lose and nothing to gain" what a freak does just to survive with the rhythm of the rain (verse 3) A spiritual wasteland I’m in one hell of a mess Way too deep to understand But its nothing more and nothing less (verse 4) Dancing on my high wire fool enough to think I’ve got a chance love these dangerous desires just to be cheated by circumstance (bridge) "feel" it in my bones now I may be lucky gonna "fuel" the fire take a deep breath (and "feel" like a new man) (chorus) slow burn - tied to a totem pole slow burn -keep it real and under control slow burn -till I turn stone cold I’m a slow burn - take it back and don't tell a soul slow burn - fused to my rib cage. slow burn - lit it up at an early age slow burn fire - and I'm wild with rage I’m a slow burn casualty on the back page.

Innocent God is the seventh studio album from Magellan. In “Rock Report,” Chris Lambert said, “Although “Innocent God” can be considered as another typical Magellan album, it is probably the most accessible album the Gardner brothers have released so far.”

Trent Gardner said of Innocent God, “IG is really a transitional album. We are moving toward modern production styles, yet combining our sound with classic influences from progressive music."
