I'm in shambles
Blown to bits by our troubles
These brambles
Our stumblings our struggles

Aspera! Per aspera! Per ardua! Ad astra!

It's a forced march
And I'm parched in denial
It's a struggle
Of faith and of fire

Aspera! Per aspera! Per ardua! Ad astra!

I'm in shambles
Blown to bits by our troubles
These brambles
Our stumblings our struggles

Aspera! Per aspera! Per ardua! Ad astra!
Thorns! Over thorns! Through this trouble, we are born!

    General Commenti'm in shambles
    blown to bits by our troubles
    these brambles
    our stumblings our struggles

    aspera! per aspera! per ardua! ad astra!

    it's a forced march
    and i'm parched in denial
    it's a struggle
    of faith and of fire

    aspera! per aspera! per ardua! ad astra!

    walking we are caught, by tiny hooks that hold our hope
    our skin may be scratched, but nothing holds us back
    i will be brave, my body may change
    but my spirit will stay, i will be brave

    aspera! per aspera! per ardua! ad astra!

    i'm in shambles
    blown to bits by our troubles
    these brambles
    our stumblings our struggles

    aspera! per aspera! per ardua! ad astra!
    thorns! over thorns! through this trouble, we are born!

    General CommentPer aspera ad astra or Ad astra per aspera is a Latin phrase which means "Through hardships to the stars" or "To the stars through difficulties".

    Take that for what you want but i'm pretty sure it sums up the whole meaning of the song.
