The song was written by band members Tim McEwan and Tyler Lyle and produced by McEwan. It has a running time of four minutes and sixteen seconds and is in the key of G major.

Although Explorers was not released as a single, artwork for the song was created by Aaron Campbell, who also designed the other artwork for Kids. This suggests that Explorers may have been planned as a single at some point.

Explorers is featured in the video game The Sims 4: Realm of Magic, with new vocals recorded in the game's Simlish language.2)

To the freedom fighters, to the everest climbers, to the castaways
To the midnight riders, to the spark igniters, I am on my way
Let it be said, and let it be known,
he who is free is never alone
The path before us, the world behind us
I’ll wait for you there

To the lost ark raiders, to the lion tamers, to the stowaway
To the white tide chaser, to the black flag raiser, I’m on my way

Let it be said, and let it be known,
he who is free is never alone
The path behind us, the world before us
I’ll wait for you there

There’s a song that sailors know
Lost, alone and far from home
Golden gallions. golden guns
And find that place under the sun

There’s a song on the Sahara wind
That lifts you to your feet again


That dances on the clockwork stars
That pulses through a beating heart
