Lyrics of New World Man

He's a rebel and a runner
He's a signal turning green
He's a restless young romantic
Wants to run the big machine

He's got a problem with his poisons
But you know he'll find a cure
He's cleaning up the systems
To keep his nature pure

Learning to match the beat of the old world man
Learning to catch the heat of the third world man

He's got to make his own mistakes
and learn to mend the mess he makes
He's old enough to know what's right
and young enough not to choose it
He's noble enough to win the world
but weak enough to lose it

He's a new world man

He's a radio receiver
Tuned to factories and farms
He's a writer and ranger and a young boy bearing arms
He's got a problem with his powers
His weapons on patrol
He's got to walk a fine line
And keep his self control

Trying to save the day for the old world man
Trying to pave the way for the third world man

He's not concerned with yesterday
He know's constant change is here today
He's noble enough to know what's right
But weak enough not to choose it
He's wise enough to win the world
But fool enough to lose it

He's a new world man

Learning to match the beat of the old world man
He's learning to catch the heat of the third world man

He's a new world man (3x)

'New World Man' is a track from the 1982 album 'Signals' by the rock band Rush. The song was the last and quickest composed song on the album, stemming from a suggestion from then-Rush producer Terry Brown. It remains Rush's only American Top 40 hit, peaking at #21 on the 'Billboard' singles chart for three weeks in October and November 1982. It also topped the 'Billboard' Top Tracks chart for two weeks (their first single to do so). 'New World Man' also reached #42 in the UK; a remixed version released as a double A-side with 'Countdown' later reached #36 in the UK in early 1983.

A live version of 'Vital Signs' appears as the B-side on the 'New World Man' single. Other than the band's self-released 1973 single of 'Not Fade Away/Can't Fight It,' this is the only song Rush has ever released on a single that did not appear on a Rush album (Mercury #76179, US edition).

The song involves heavy use of guitar, synthesizer, and bass, especially near the middle of the song. The song essentially follows a standard verse-chorus-verse-chorus pattern in the absence of a guitar solo.
