"Endless Possibility" is the main theme song of the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version and Wii/PlayStation 2 version of Sonic Unleashed. It is performed by Jaret Reddick of Bowling for Soup.

Background

An orchestrated version is composed by sound director Tomoya Ohtani for the Perfect Dark Gaia boss battle in Sonic Unleashed. A short, instrumental mix of this song, alongside "Knight of the Wind" and "Sonic Heroes", appear in the Nintendo DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games for the Ultimate Figure Skating event. It is also an unlockable track in the console/PC version of Sonic Generations. In 2016, there was a guitar version of the song exclusive to the Sonic Runners Werehog event, which featured an electric guitar substituting the melody. The intro seems to be based on U2's "Pride (In the Name of Love)".

Lyrics

This is my escape
I'm running through this world and I'm not looking back
'Cause I know I can go
Where no one's ever gone and I'm not looking back
But how will I know when I get there?
And how will I know when to leave?
We've all gotta start from somewhere
And it's right there for me
The possibilities are never ending
I see it, I see it, and now it's all within my reach
(Endless possibility)
I see it, I see it now, it's always been inside of me
(And now I feel so free)
Endless possibility
And so I'll carry on
My time to shine has come, I feel it! (I feel it, I feel it)
As fast as I can go
Straight to the top I know, you'll see it! (You'll see it, you'll see it)
So please wake me up when I get there
It feels like I'm lost in a dream
I know in my heart that it's my time
And I already see
The possibilities are never ending!
I see it, I see it, and now it's all within my reach
(Endless possibility)
I see it, I see it now, it's always been inside of me
(And now I feel so free)
Endless possibility
Drop that smile 'cause you're beaten again
No, this is where my journey begins!
You're losing speed, you're losing your flow
But inside me's a power you'll never know!
Then let it out, it's inside you
Better all stand back 'cause I'm coming THROUGH!
I see it, I see it, and now it's all within my reach
I see it, I see it now, it's always been inside of me!
I see it, I see it, and now it's all within my reach
(Endless possibility)
I see it, I see it now, it's always been inside of me (And now I feel so free)
Endless Possibility (Endless Possibility)
Endless Possibility (Endless Possibility)
Endless Possibility!

Trivia

  • This is the only song from Planetary Pieces: Sonic World Adventure Original Soundtrack that was not included in the digital re-release of the soundtrack.
  • It is commonly misconceived that the Perfect Dark Gaia remix was done by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra. However the boss theme was actually not done by a live orchestra but was in fact a synthesized orchestra composed by Sonic Unleashed's sound director, Tomoya Ohtani, who also put together the vocal theme's instrumental track.[citation needed]
  • While most of the Perfect Dark Gaia remix is done with synthesised instruments, a few of the instruments were actually performed by real composers (specifically Jun Senoue playing electric guitar during the song).
