The Lyrics

This is a hearfelt tribute to the least sympathetic character of 'Lost'. Sawyer may not be very pleasant, but he's a honorable dude at heart. Some spoilers may be contained in the review - read with caution.
A deported warrior
Mean mean stride
Survivor Sawyer
Mean mean guy

While his stash is not for rent
Don't you call him petulant
Sarcasm his prime defense
Lazing through the day's events
While reading

And what you say about his thievery
Denies the fact of his humanity
Stash the drugs, stash the books
Stash the manifest, sneak some looks

The folded letter
Never to be sent
And his watery eyes are wide!

Survivor Sawyer
He may not like you
At the end of the day
He depends on you

No his stash is not for rent
He thinks Jack's the government
Wallowing in his discontent
Thinking life here is permanent
And ain't it?

And what you say about misanthropy
Is what you say about society
Lash the man, lash his wit
Lash his spirit, lash his gift

His life is, his life is
That which makes one weep
He has had a nasty ride

Exit the warrior
Survivor Sawyer
He gets by with you
And makes his trade
He'll make things right, right about the end of the day
Some parts of the original seemed too good to fully jettison.
