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

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 mist, catch the myth
Catch the mystery, catch the drift
Ohh… Ohh… Ohh

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

Doo doo doo doo doo – doo doo doo doo doo doo
Pow pow pow pow
Woo ah woo woo ah
Woo ah woo woo ah
Woo ah woo woo ah
Woo ah woo woo ah

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
Ohh.…

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
That day
Hoo hoo
That day
Ha ha
That day
Oh That day – That
Pow pow pow
