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
