Today’s Tom Sawyer

As disappointed as I am at the serious lack of intellectual depth in today’s popular culture, I take heart from the fact that there are those who can still pound home a good message. All hail our friends from The Great White North:

Rush – Tom Sawyer

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 want ice water.
