THE EXPLORER

The Explorer
Track 1 from The Explorer

It is an age of fear and loathing
Forces of evil sweeped the land
But one venturous man refuses to participate in this new destructive way of life
He leaves in a quest for higher ground for those who have suffered enough
The people call him “The Explorer”

Choir:

Exploratori Credimus, Exploratorem Sequimur
Exploratori Credimus, Exploratorem Salutamus

Calling Your Name
Track 2 from The Explorer

There is something I have to say to you before
I am on my knees and I’m looking for some answers
You've got that certain something, I don't know what to do
Don’t tell me what is better, I’m just not a fool

Ah, should’ve never done that
Ah, why did I do that
Ah, will you forgive me
I'm calling, I’m calling your name
Ah, should’ve never done that
Ah, why did I do that

I’m calling, I’m calling your name
Where the winds would never lie
And I know that it can’t be the same
Where the winds would never lie
I’m calling, I’m calling your name

I just can’t let you go, can’t let you get away
I’m such a fool for you and tired of being second to none
I’m gonna take you with me and chase the clouds away
Why can’t you see your body’s begging me to stay
 
Ah, should’ve never done that
Ah, why did I do that
Ah, will you forgive me
I'm calling, I’m calling your name
Ah, should’ve never done that
Ah, why did I do that

I’m calling, I’m calling your name
Where the winds would never lie
And I know that it can’t be the same
Where the winds would never lie
I’m calling, I’m calling your name

We are forever lovers
I just can’t take any more
Why don’t you call my name?
I wonder why I can’t let you go

Back In The Loop
Track 3 from The Explorer

Time has come to get the troops back together
No one’s cruising for a bruising
It’s a landslide, can't die
Time to get what’s coming to me
Time to let things go
There is no way to stop the yellow danger
Time has come for you
Cause I’m back....

Back! Cause I’m back.... Back!
I’m back... Back! Cause I’m back... Back!

Snap out of it now
We’re back in the loop and it’s time to move on
We’re aiming for all or nothing now
We’re back in the loop and it’s time to go on
For us it is all or nothing

Who are you? friend or foe?
Now leave your sorrows all behind
This ain’t enough, hanging tough
Now you must make up your mind
We can't stay down, we have to leave
There is no place for us to hide, so this is it
You’ve been warned now either join or step aside
Cause I’m back……

Back! Cause I’m back..... Back!

Snap out of it now
We’re back in the loop and it’s time to move on
We’re aiming for all or nothing now
We’re back in the loop and it’s time to go on
For us it is all or nothing

Back with a vengeance

I Just Wanna Be With You
Track 4 from The Explorer

It’s time to cut the slack now,
you are gonna hear me balin’ truth
Back out from the underworld I’m here now
I’ve got something to prove
So hush and keep up now, serious, I’m telling you that
she's one of a kind
Keep all your fingers to yourself
I’m here to take back what’s mine
Hear me say...

This time you're all mine. Let us shine

I can’t get you off my mind, I just wanna be with you
You’re the best I’ll ever find, I wanna be with you

I’m on a mission from God,
I’m crazy, this is the war that I will win for sure
my middle name is Overkill
keep watching, you’ll see that I will score
Boom, Boom, when we come across
the sea what ever we search for we will find
Keep all your fingers to yourself
I’m here to take back what’s mine
Here me say...

This time you're all mine. Let us shine

I can’t get you off my mind, I just wanna be with you
You’re the best I’ll ever find, I wanna be with you

Hear me I’m here to take what's mine
I just wanna be with you
What ever I’ll search for I will find
I wanna be with you

Free Like A Flying Demon
Track 5 from The Explorer

I’m calling upon your attention
now is the time, we’re talking serious redemption
Come follow me
red light wasn’t warning when I first saw her body move
I wasn’t sure it was a jet stall.

I thought I had it all, now I am down and low
memories on the wall, I have to let it go...

I’m free like a flying demon, no more of them filthy lies
Just free like a flying demon, this is the day of my life

Why can't you see into the future
you're going to get hurt by someone who won’t suit you
they call it your destiny
but I am pretty sure now
that one who is lonely can't get hurt
she is getting stronger

I thought I had it all, now I am down and low
memories on the wall, I have to let it go...

I’m free like a flying demon, no more of them filthy lies
Just free like a flying demon, this is the day of my life

Someday it might just work but this ain’t the time
This grounded flight is taking off, I leave you behind

I'm free like...a demon.. no more filthy lies...a demon.. this is the day of my life

I’m free like a flying demon, no more of them filthy lies
Just free like a flying demon, this is the day of my life

You Know
Track 6 from The Explorer

Lived my life to the extreme
I’ve been wasting my time with lies

Lived my life from dream to dream
You have awaken the beast that sleeps

I’ll be forever here, around you day and night
I’ll never let you down, I’ll stay right here…

You know, that I will always stand by your side
You know, that what we’ve got is stronger than pride
You know, there is nothing I wouldn’t do
I’ll always stay with You

You must give me half a chance
I am not what I used to be

I know, this sudden change
must be confusing for you to see

I’ll be forever here, around you day and night
I’ll never let you down, I’ll stay right here…

I’ll be forever here, around you day and night
I just want you to know where I am
I just want to make sure that you know…

Forever Wild
Track 7 from The Explorer

We are forever wild

Come follow me now…

Hear how... this bell tolls just for you
Don’t fight what this will bring you
This is what to do
We’re starting out from low

Time to go insane
take a step into the fast lane
Rattle all your chains
It's Friday in your veins, believe it

We’re going, you know it
Nothing can stop us from now
Too well-bred, a pinhead?
Hate to disappoint you, but I’m not that kind of guy

We are forever wild
Let’s change the night into day
We are forever wild
I’ve come to take you away
We are forever wild
Get ready now and forever
You know, “This is the way”

Everybody go PoP up now....

Face it the gathering is here
I know you’re out there somewhere
Can you feel the fear
grow when you get near

You’re up against the wall
You must make up your mind now
Can you hear the call
We've got to give it all, believe it

We’re going, you know it
Nothing can stop us from now
Too well-bred, a pinhead?
Hate to disappoint you, but I’m not that kind of guy

Fall From The Sky
Track 8 from The Explorer

You had to go that far to prove your strength and ability
To stand alone against the tide of tears

It made me see some of my own stupidity
But it’s too late to look back at the old fears

So tell me, I’m lost and I'm out here
Tell me, if there is a chance…

I feel like I fall from the sky
I wonder where you are
I never did understand why
You had to go that far…

I feel like I fall from the sky
I wonder where you are
I never did understand why
You had to go that far…

We could have had all we wanted
Do you remember all the things we said
Or have you lost that sense of freedom we hunted
Are all the dreams we had forgotten and dead?

So tell me, I’m lost and I’m out here
tell me, if there is a chance…

I know that it’s far to late
Too many things have been said,
but I wonder if you…
Could ever believe in me
Tell me, if there is a chance…

I'm Not Alone
Track 9 from The Explorer

I’m always on the run,
restless searching the sun
I’m on my way, it’s all a
timeless never ending story
My life is a civil war,
between all open doors
So little time so many
goals left to achieve

It’s OK, OK, OK,
Insecurity to live this way, I wonder?

I’m not alone (no, no, no),
I’m not alone, I’m just to deep in the game
I’m not alone, no, I’m on my way home

I’ve changed the night to day but,
one day I’ll have to pay
Mission impossible to build
a place for us two without walls
I’m living day by day,
I don’t have to explain
There is no other solution I’m afraid

It’s OK, OK, OK,
Insecurity to live this way, I wonder?

I’m always here, don’t you worry now,
I’m always here
I just need some time but,
I’m not alone

I’m not alone, I’m on my way home
I’m here, I’m standing on my own
Just a little bit tired,
I’m on my way home
I’m not alone, I’m on my way home
I’m here, I’m standing on my own
Just a little bit tired,
I’m on my way home
I’m not alone,
I’m not alone now
I’m not alone
I just need some time to get it right
I’m not alone now,
I’m on my way home

Oh, Lord, I’m not alone now
Oh, Lord, I just need some time to get it right
Oh, Lord, I’m not alone now
I’m on my way home

We Gotta Go
Track 10 from The Explorer

We gotta go
We’ve got nothing to lose now
Time has come for us to get out
We gotta go
If we’re going down, well
Let's go down in flames

Gotta go now

Gimme something,
I can’t stand waiting
Don’t wanna live your life in a rut, so get in
Coming on strong like a force of nature
Why can’t you let it go away…

I’m ready to launch,
I’ve got my fingers on the trigger
You can’t keep me down,
cause I’m only getting bigger
I’m ready to go now,
I’m ready to leave now,
I’m ready to go away

Don’t point your finger,
you can’t take away my pride
Cause I’m the wave
that will turn the tide
I’m the scream you will hear,
I’m the one you will fear
You can only watch me go away…

You Will Always Be A Part Of Me
Track 11 from The Explorer

My mind keeps drifting back to things we said this morning
Now I’m sitting here alone watching the world pass me by
every time we part I feel like I’m falling
No matter what you think
I still love you

You will always be a part of me
no matter what we do
You will always hold a piece of me
wherever I may go
Always....

The sky gets darker and I sense that you are far and away
I miss the times we had when things were going our way
but every time we part you know how much it hurts me
No matter what you think
I still love you

So Dem A Com (Explorer Version)
Track 12 from The Explorer


So dem a com, so dem a com, dem a com, dem a com,
So dem a com with a bompin’ song, so dem a com

Late in the evening when the E-Type left the stage
Casanova takes over, now they call mi P.J.
Them balin: rampam-zibbie-dibbie, ever in style
P.J. breaks your heart and then he’ll leave you with a smile

So dem a com, so dem a com, dem a com, dem a com
So dem a com with a bompin’ song,
So dem a com with a bompin’ song, so dem a com

P.J. comes like Jorghie-Porghie, kiss the girls and make them cry
’Cause tonight I’m making all them pretty girls go wild

Them balin: rampam-zibbie-dibbie, ever in style
P.J. breaks your heart and then he'll leave you with a smile

So dem a com, so dem a com, dem a com, dem a com
So dem a com with a bompin’ song
So dem a com with a bompin’ song, so dem a com

(Chilly toast)

You’ll never see it now but P.J.'s coming up
Zippin’ with them jah-jah-men he's staying on the top

Them balin: rampam-zibbie-dibbie, ever in style
P.J. breaks your heart and then he'll leave you with a smile
