about

'As We Know It' contains 3 songs from Hemina's upcoming album 'Synthetic' as well as some extra tracks to give a sample of the musical journey one can come to expect from listening to Hemina.

This is Hemina in its most primordial and raw state and as such is a cut below the quality that the band is known for delivering now. This is just for fans as a collector's piece now.

Track Name: Lonesome Angel
Save your prayers for me
A petty thief, a vagabond.
And now to find a friend
Find my friend
Track Name: And Now to Find a Friend
Like awakening from some lonesome rift
These bones know not of friendship
I'm a pilferer, No I'm not, I'm a liar
Just show my name lit up in lights!

So take a glimpse and have a peer
At the pressure on this humble man
Hear the smashes of glass, hear the shackles
Bind him to the flashing van

It's a feeling that's inside
A mutuality to find
If this is what one really is
Mother was right

Save your prayers for me
A petty thief, a vagabond
And now to find a friend
If I am how he made me;
A crowned jewel, a baby in golden basket
I'm an angel without wings
Find my friend

Like a pigeon to the plague
My mind already made
Just a virgin boy so shy
Who fell at the sight of green eyes

It's a feeling that's inside
A mutuality to find
And if she closed her eyes she'd see
Her angel lies in me

Save your prayers for me
A petty thief, a vagabond
And now to find a friend
If I am how he made me;
A caged fool, an arrow with no direction
I'm angel without wings
Find my friend

Lying under stars with you
Lying on the sand with you
We escaped my life, now this starts our war
Be my wife, crash me on the shore
Be the friend I never needed more
And make the son we'll never love more

Save your prayers for me
A petty thief or your soul mate
I'm an angel with his wings
Found my friend
Track Name: For All Wrong Reasons
For all wrong reasons
Struggling to find identity
I've seen each passing season
The basis for my calamity

Oh , I've stolen things
Ah, I've fought and I've killed
There, Have I proved my worth now?
This, it's all that I've known

For all wrong reasons
Struggling to find identity
I've seen each passing season
The basis for my calamity

Oh, we've circled in rings
Ah, we've bashed the young kids
There, I've proved my worth now
This, to earn your respect, to become a we - to fit right in

For all wrong reasons
Struggling to find identity
I've seen each passing season
The basis for my calamit
Track Name: With What I See
Fight or Flight
Emotions I don't know about
Escaped my world
The one that fate paved out for me
Guilt for leaving mother
But her ways I can't defend
She vested herself in him
For her life I would descend

Where's he now?

With what I see
The safety of my family
'Twas only mother and me
Starved of a paternity
All I ever wanted
Was a woman by my side
I think I've finally found her
With what I see she looks fine to me

Patiently,
I visit home of yesteryears
The fragile devout lady
And her two-bit mountain sanctuary
To sate my growling hunger;
To assure her I'm still there
With what I see
She doesn't even care

With what I see
The safety of my family
'Twas only mother and me
Starved of a paternity
All I ever wanted
Was a woman by my side
I think I've finally found her
With what I see she looks fine to me

With what I see
The safety of my family
'Twas only mother and me
Starved of a paternity
All I ever wanted
Was a woman by my side
I think I've finally found her
With what I see she looks fine to me
Track Name: The Hunt
