Rush Tom Sawyer Lyrics

Last updated: 12/06/2012 05:54:46 AM

A modern day warrior
Mean, mean stride
Today's Tom Sawyer
Mean, mean pride

Though his mind is not for rent
Don't put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day's events
The river

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the mist, catch the myth
Catch the mystery, catch the drift

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his skies are wide

Today's Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the space he invades
He gets by on you

No his mind is not for rent
To any god or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren't permanent
But change is

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the witness, catch the wit
Catch the spirit, catch the spit

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide

Exit the warrior
Today's Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the friction of the day

I love Rush, the meanings in their songs are very profound and it takes a musicall mind to understand their music, they are my favorite band and once you get it you will love it, it flows so well.
I saw them in concert and they played this song, its a good song but it's a little different than the others,
I love Rush.



great song | Reviewer: L | 9/5/10

This is the first Rush song I ever heard, and now I love all their songs. I'm 15, but Rush is one of my favorite bands now. Great music for a 42 year old band. I have hope that they'll go strong for another ten or fifteen years before it's all over.



So Hard to Learn | Reviewer: Emily Gregg | 4/14/10

Some people I know did this song for an 80's graduation party and omg, it was sooooo hard to learn. But they nailed it. And personally, I thought they almost sounded better than the original. Such a great song.



strange... | Reviewer: Ivo | 3/23/10

i love rush, but i don't love this song... i guess i have heard it too much... (it's a great song don't get me wrong)... but there are many other songs i would rather listen to (the fountain of lamneth, red sector a, rivendell, distant early warning, etc.)

4 out of 5 stars (because it is over-played on the radio)



Nice | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/21/07

All time greats | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/19/06

I have been a long time Rush fan and a big fan of music in general. Tom Sawyer is the best Rush song ever. It's hard core and to this day still gets me pumped up.
