The artist is Rush and the title of the song is Tom Sawyer. Here are the full lyrics if you want them.

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

The album (Vinyl) was "Moving Pictures" (late '70s) and Tom Sawyer was the first hit single from the album.  Tom Sawyer also appeared on Rush's "Exit Stage Left" live compilation.

How cool to see the boys from my home town (Toronto, Canada) used in one of the best cartoon series ever.
