Jason Hillenburg Very unique. There is a powerful fusion of modern dynamics with an old school aesthetic. Sweet Cicada never forgets to pummel the listener with invigorating instrumental workouts, but they also have strong vocal melodies and swinging drums that illustrate their older influences. Powerful stuff. I expect their first full length release will kick all appropriate ass.

Track Name: Fingerprints
Seen in the eyes of those
Whom they have led astray
Heard through the mouths of those
Who mock and turn away

May Adonai...
May Adonai rebuke you

I smell you in the stench of death
And rotting moral decay
Evidence you leave wherever you walk,
It betrays you...

I know, I see they live among us
I see, I know their fingerprints

I see you!
I see you!
I see you!
I see you!

May Adonai...
May Adonai rebuke you!

The truth He shows me
Every time you try to sell the same old lies!

Ain’t buying it, no, just get outta my face
Ain’t buying it, no, just get outta my face
Ain’t buying it, no, just get outta my face
I won’t give you a place in my heart...

No place.

Track Name: Switch
Stakin' claims...weasel in
Manipulate...me and my kin!

I wanna kill, but I find me a better way
I got to turn it on, turn it on, turn it on
Gotta switch on love and get outta the way

I wanna kill, but I find me a better way
I got to turn it on, turn it on, turn it on
Gotta switch on love and get outta the way

On a power trip and all that counts is number one
Got the green, call the shots, pull the strings, or so they believe!

I wanna kill, but I find me a better way
I got to turn it on, turn it on, turn it on
Gotta switch on love and get outta the way

I wanna kill, but I find me a better way
I got to turn it on, turn it on, turn it on
Gotta switch on love and get outta the way

Wolves always scratchin' at my door
I hope I can remember what to do
The world is full of crooks and jerks and whores
Am I any better if I act the same way too?
Better not believe it!

When they're slingin' mud, makin' threats
Suckin' blood, with no regrets!

I wanna kill, but I find me a better way
I got to turn it on, turn it on, turn it on
Gotta switch on love, and get outta the way

I wanna kill, but I find me a better way
I got to turn it on, turn it on, turn it on
Gotta switch on love, and get outta the way

Track Name: Quarter
Please pardon me for what I have done
I admit it, in my heart, I’m pointing a gun
In the face of my enemy

How can we love here, when we are so bad?
Help us to switch from hate, to love our fellow man

Yeah

I hate myself, evil man I see
Is a speck of dirt in the eyes of eternity, yeah
I appeal to you, When you arrive don’t give me what I deserve
Come on down, But have mercy on my soul

When I think I’m king, I’m treading fire
The truth is plain, every man’s a liar
My heart is glad that you’ve made the way
For the human race to see a better day

Yeah

Someone good, Someone true
Someone right, Only you
You
