The mighty continents divided
For a second time in all history
They found themselves just floating
Free from all responsibility
Without the weight of being whole
Some flew seaward all on their own
But if you want something back
All the things that got cracked
When i felt like you lied to me
And all the million mistakes
And the kicks in the face
But i don't want you to die in me
So when you say what you want
That you need what you got
Don't forget to be kind to me

Now here's an apple with a tougher skin
While you've got your pretty scales and fins you say
See all the things that i can do
So perfectly my body grew but in

All the time you felt so free
Did you forget how much you once loved me
And if you want something back
All the things that got cracked
When i felt like you lied to me
And all the million mistakes
And the kicks in the face
But i don't want you to die in me
So when you say what you want
That you need what you got
Don't forget to be kind to me
I don't want you to die in me

    General CommentI came on here to see what other people think that this song is trying to convey and was kind of disappointed that nobody wrote anything.

    my friend put this song on a mixtape for me as a birthday present and gave me the tape just a day before my boyfriend's best friend broke the news to me that my boyfriend who I had just recently gone on a break with had been dating another girl for a few weeks while I'd been across the country for summer and lying to me about a lot of the things that he had been doing. so when I hear this song I really can't think about anything else. to me, it's about being hurt by someone you love and losing all of your trust in them.

    but it seems like it's really a song about getting out of a really intense relationship and looking back on all of the destructive parts of it but still not wanting to let the person become just some meaningless memory.
