Living with no reason, dwarfed, alone, imprisoned;
Wonder why I'm here at all?
Why I'm even trying, destined to be filing;
The higher you reach the harder you fall.

And then you say:
We're all the same, all got our dreams
Loose at the seams.
'Cause we all spit at stars,
We all spit at stars,
We all spit at stars.

Unifying fact, however we act when we feel
We've not made our true goal.
Something we can see, but not reach or be
Can leave you dead in a hole.

Dreams are the same; we're all the same,
All got our dreams loose at their seams
'Cause we all spit at stars,
We all spit at stars,
We all spit at stars.

You don't get what you don't deserve.
Don't expect the world with know what, that's absurd.
Learn to spit up towards the stars,
'Cause who knows soon, your spit will land on Mars.

And then you'll say:
We're all the same, all got our dreams
Loose at their seams.
'Cause we all spit at stars,
We all spit at stars,
We all spit at stars.

    That we all try, but most of the time fail. No one can spit high enough to reach the stars, just like no one can fulfill their every dream.. No one. You can come close, but making everything happen is not entirely possible. Life is hard, and if you keep trying, maybe your dreams will come true.

    It's like when you feel like life isn't worth living and that however hard you try, there's no point as your goals seem unreachable and unnatainable.
    The song is saying that everyoune feels like that, and the whole point is to strive for your dreams. You won't get anywhere without effort and ultimately, it may take a while but you get what you give out, you reap what you sow.
    It says 'we all spit at stars' which is a metaphor which means that we all have dreams and aspirations that seem as impossible as spitting at stars but it then goes on to say 'who knows your spit may land on mars', signifying the fact that nothings impossible and unreachable and with perservation, positivity and the right attitude we can all suceed in our dreams.
