The Secret Colony

They call me Nautilus \ Hello!
I float my way through outer space
In search of solar systems to
perpetuate the Human Race

My cryo-cargofs sleeping now
Already for 10000 years
But when I reach a watery world
Ifll warm them up and give three cheers

Did you sleep well? Wake up, wefre here
No life, but you can plant some seeds
And terraform this barren globe
Till it can satisfy your needs

This planet is our paradise
Letfs make society anew
And recreate the dreams of old
A new New York, a new York too

Utopia, but donft let on
Those back on Earth long since evolved
With super-brains enhanced 10-fold
Theyfd kill us if we got involved
