Tom Sawyer Lyrics

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...

    Remember when this song came out by RUSH, was like fuel to energize your soul with a holy healthy pride in doing your everyday works within the journey of self in whatever you are doing in these so called modern times that are moving so fast to the changes in rebelling to hold your space in moving freely through it. Reminds me of Bruce when he landed with the song Badlands to lift us up. Now I've read that some of Ayn Rand philosophy influenced RUSH, wich may be true, but most credit goes to the band, I mean, I can relate to the quote out of expierience. ''If you are not a liberal at 20 you have no heart, If you are not a conservitive at 30 you don't have a brain'', And if I can add my 2 pennies to it, If you don't realize at 40 there is a god within a GOD, you may be a fool.
