Lyrics:

Was many years ago that I left home and came this way
I was a young man, full of hopes and dreams
But now it seems that all is lost and nothing gained
Someimes things ain't what they seem

No brave new world, no brave new world
No brave new world, no brave new world

Night and day I scan horizon, sea and sky
My spirit wanders endlessly
until the day will dawn and friends from home discover why
Hear me calling, rescue me

Set me free, set me free
Lost in this place, and leave no trace

Stranger in a strange land
Land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison
Lost and far from home

One hundred years have gone and men again they came that way
To find the answer to the mystery
They found his body where it fell that day
Preserved in time for all to see

No brave new world, no brave new world
Lost in this place, to leave no trace

What became of the man that started
All are gone and souls departed
Left me here in this prison
So all alone

Stranger in a strange land
Land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison
Lost and far from home

What became of the man that started
All are gone and souls departed
Left me here in this prison
So all alone

Stranger in a strange land
Land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison
Lost and far from home
