(FIRST TAB please rate)
[only completing the first half of the song]
[easier version at bottom of the page (: ]
Intro: barr 9th fret Am.
my strumming is vvvv ^^^ v^v^ (x8)
the strumming is continuous during intro
the intro is a set of 2 different sounds acctually making it x4
the first part- remove your middle finger in the first space on my strumming
the second part- remove your middle finger in the first space on my strumming 
then remove your pinkey finger on the second space.
(intros done finally) =P

-for the rest of the song use your regular 4 beat strumming- 
(i'm approximating the positions but thats the easy part to figure out once u have the flow

|A            E|
I've given up on giving up slowly, 
    D                 E|
I'm blending in so you won't even know me 
  F#m           E|               D|
apart from this whole world that shares my fate
 A            E|
This one last bullet you mention, 
    D                 E|
is my one last shot at redemption
  F#m           E|                         D|
because I know to live you, must give your life away
               F#m              D|       A      E|
And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity and
         |F#m               D|             A                 E|
I've been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
             F#m           D|                 A              E|
And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
         D                                 E|
And even though, there's no way in knowing where to go, promise I'm going because
|A E    |D              E|
Ohhh, I gotta get outta here
|F#m                   D              |A      E|
I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
A E     |D              E|
Ohhh, I gotta get outta here
|F#m                   D              |A      E|
And I'm begging You, I'm begging You, I'm begging You to be my escape.

(in the acoustic version there is no intro thrown in here but i throw in 1 set of the intro here)
[same chords for the rest of the song!]

I'm giving up on doing this alone now
Cause I've failed and I'm ready to be shown how
He's told me the way and I'm trying to get there
And this life sentence that I'm serving
I admit that I'm every bit deserving
But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair

Cause I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity and
I've been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
And even though, there's no way in knowing where to go, promise I'm going because
Ohhh, I gotta get outta here
Cause I'm afraid that this complacency is something I can't shake, yeah.
Ohhh, I gotta get outta here
And I'm begging You, I'm begging You, I'm begging You to be my escape.

I am a hostage to my own humanity
Self detained and forced to live in this mess I've made
And all I'm asking is for You to do what You can with me
But I can't ask You to give what You already gave

Cause I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity and
I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
And even though, there's no way in knowing where to go, promise I'm going because
Ohhh, I've gotta get outta here
I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
Ohhh, I've gotta get outta here
And I'm begging You, I'm begging You, I'm begging
You to be my escape.

I fought You for so long
I should have let You in
Oh how we regret those things we do
And all I was trying to do was save my own skin
But so were You

So were You
