heck it out, this song is all about three crucial things you can't succeed without
The first is important yeah, have no doubt
Set a goal... (aww yeah)
Then we'll plan the route

GPS...Goal, Plan, Success!

Set a goal, yeah, set it real high
Only limit you should set should be up in the sky
Never sell yourself short before you even try
You can reach your goals like a pilot, you can fly!

GPS...Goal, Plan, Success!

Make a plan! Yeah, that's what's up next,
But don't you get lazy or skip any steps
Failure is not an option, cuz that you'd regret...
Make a plan for the future and don't you forget.. (follow your)

GPS...Goal, Plan, Success!

If you do these things, just to name a few
Nobody can stop the dreams that you pursue
So shout it out loud that's what I suggest,
Tobias Explorer's follow G.P.S!

GPS...Goal, Plan, Success!

Just years ago, I was in your place
Tryin to find my own space, didn't know which road to take
So I tried many things and have a hundred percent,
Realized for music my life was meant.

So I set a goal, made a plan, worked for success,
All soul, nothing banned, never less than my best,
Finally reached my destination--passed the ultimate test.
I use that GPS, you got that GPS!
