Mutual Core

I shuffle around
The tectonic plates
In my chest
You know I gave it all

Try to match our continents
To change seasonal shift
To form a mutual core

As fast as your fingernail grows
The Atlantic Ridge Drifts
To counteract distance
You know I gave it all

Can you hear the effort
Of the magnetic strife?
Shuffling of columns
To form a mutual core

This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know I had it in me
Withheld your love, an unspent capsule
I didn't know you had it in you
You hid the key to our continuity
I didn't know you had it in you
This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know! You didn't know!

What you resist persists
Nuance makes heat
To counteract distance
I know you gave it all

Offered me harmony
If things were done your way
My eurasian plate subsumed
Forming a mutual core

This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know I had it in me
Withheld our love, an unspent capsule
I didn't know you had it in you
This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know I had it in me
This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know! You didn't know!
