least expected
seizure of symphony
apoplectic
blind, but now can see
unprotected
take me, love, take me

gentle electric
tingle, touch my cheek
gold and threaded
blind as they
there's no question
my heart skips beats when you're with me

am i graced or grounded?
blessed or burnt to crisp?
through this mud, we're impounded
is this bliss?

the pavement blazes
on my back
this storm, it's savage
left here on some grass
i shake and shiver
took your wounded hand
you sparked and flickered
come back, come back, come back

least expected
seizure of symphony
apoplectic
blind, but now can see
unprotected
take me, love, take me

am i graced or grounded?
blessed or burnt to crisp?
through this mud, we're impounded
this is bliss

    General CommentFirst I'd like to say thank you for doing your best here on these lyrics. I love this band and I love this song. I think you did a really good job figuring out these lyrics. The only difference or trouble i run into with this song is the line "through this mud". It almost sounds like he says "smooth" instead of "through" but I'm really not sure. I can't really make it out.
