Remembering Neil Peart. Taken from us tragically early

"Tom Sawyer" by Rush (Time Machine Tour 2011: Live In Cleveland)





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 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


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 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
