[Verse 1]

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


[Hook]

E E
      Though his mind is not for rent,

      His reserve, a quiet defense,

And what you say about his company  
    E        C           B  A
Is what you say about society.  
E        F#    G            A
Catch the mist, catch the myth

Catch the mystery, catch the drift.

The world is, the world is,  
A        G         B
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

Catch the spirit, catch the spit.

Maybe as his eyes are wide.

E
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.
