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 about the choice between being free, or accepting the responsibility of having the person who completes you. She talks about how the continents are floating and no longer have any responsibilities, and also about how some fruits evolve, but aren't whole. In the second verse, she also talks about someone feeling free, but this makes her feel forgotten. It again shows the conflict between being free and being whole. She says that she understands the allure of abandoning the people you love in order to feel that kind of freedom, and she forgives the person, and doesn't want to lose them.
