The lines are drawn in the sand across the caress of time
The lines are drawn in the sand across the caress of time

There's a face in the glass lookin' through the mirror
At the maze of my past it was never clearer
On the distant horizon the sun approaches
Better cover my eyes, better hide the roaches

In the best of my time there was something better
And the quest of my mind was to try and get her
Something simple, pure as the thoughts in my head
Not the tears in the rain over me she shed

(Oh oh oh oh)
We were almost there
(Oh oh oh oh)
Still I was unaware

(Chorus)
Here in the Brave New World's Embrace
I watch the parade begin
Searching for one familiar face
And I wonder where I fit in
How will I know if there's a place
For me in the Brave New World

To be calm in the eye of the human storm
In the house full of dreams I am safe and warm
Looking back on a life filled with warm embraces
No regrets, only memories of smiling faces

(Oh oh oh oh)
We were almost there
(Oh oh oh oh)
Now change is in the air

(Chorus)
Here in the Brave New World's Embrace
I watch the parade begin
Searching for one familiar face
And I wonder where I fit in
How will I know if there's a place
For me in the Brave New World

Until now I held the zone, I ruled the world
I called it home, I never saw the down side

(Oh oh oh oh)
We were almost there
(Oh oh oh oh)
I, I was unaware

(Chorus)
Here in the Brave New World's Embrace
I watch the parade begin
Searching for one familiar face
And I wonder where I fit in
How will I know if there's a place
For me in the Brave New World

See the now, see the zen
There is no divison
Through the eyes of a child
There is perfect vision
And the best of our lives
Resinate the hills
And the sun's going to shine
And you know that I will...
