  • 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

    And 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 eyes 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.

    And 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 skies 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.
