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 think this song is a story of a broken heart.

    "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 fruits evolved all on their own"

    I think this means that her and her love split up, or divided. They were so in love that they had become "the mighty continent". They were the most combined force in history. Then they floated free without the weight of being whole, meaning they seperated and just kind of drifted for a while. The last line of this stanza, I think means, She was alone and had to adapt to a new way of life.

    "While you've got your pretty scales and fins you say
    See all the things that i can do
    So perfectly my body moves but in
    All the time you felt so free
    Did you forget how much you once loved me"

    So here obviously he has taken well to "single" life and he flaunts how much better he's doing now. She's hurt by this and asks if he forgets that he ever loved her.

    This song has a lot of meaning and deep metaphors. I love the feeling of desperate heart break in the song, and the way that even though he's left and flaunts it; she still never wants to forget him. I can relate in more ways than I orriginaly knew.
