The others require a capo, I don't even own one, I think its a cheaters tool haha 
so I tranposed it from key to key so you can play without a capo.
Orig. Key-G
New Key-A

Verse 1:
A                  E
I’ve given up, I'm giving up slowly,
    D
I’m blending in so you won’t even know me
A               E                F#m    E  D
apart from this whole world that shares my fate
A             E                  D
This one last bullet you mention is my one last shot at redemption
A                 E                       F#m  E  D
because I know to live you must give your life away

Pre-chorus:
              F#m              D         A      E
And I’ve been housing all this doubt and insecurity
          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
          F#m                                       D
And even though, there’s no way in knowing where to go,
            E
promise I’m going because

Chorus:
A    E          D         E
I---I gotta get outta here
    A                 E               D          E
I’m stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
A    E          D         E
I---I gotta get outta here
        F#m              E
And I’m begging You, I’m begging You,
             D     E       A
I’m begging You to be my escape.

Verse 2:
A                 E
I’m giving up on doing this alone now
D
Cause I’ve failed and I’m ready to be shown how
A                 E                F#m E    D
He’s told me the way and I’m trying to get there
A             E
And this life sentence that I’m serving
D
I admit that I’m every bit deserving
A                 E                      F#m  E   D
But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair

Pre-chorus:
              F#m               D        A       E
And I’ve been housing all this doubt and insecurity
           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
          F#m                                        D
And even though, there’s no way in knowing where to go,
            E
promise I’m going because

Chorus:
A    E          D         E
I---I gotta get outta here
    A                     E          D                 E
I'm afraid that this complacity is something I can't shake
A    E          D         E
I---I gotta get outta here
        F#m              E
And I’m begging You, I’m begging You,
    D                E      A
I’m begging You to be my escape.

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

Pre-chorus:
              F#m               D        A       E
And I’ve been housing all this doubt and insecurity
          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
          F#m                                        D
And even though, there’s no way in knowing where to go,
            E
promise I’m going because

Chorus:
A    E          D         E
I---I gotta get outta here
    A                 E               D          E
I’m stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
A    E          D         E
I---I gotta get outta here
        F#m              E
And I’m begging You, I’m begging You,
    D              E        A
I’m begging You to be my escape.

You sure? originally the song is in C with the capo, I transposed to G, the progression you have is a mix between keys E and G

That's true E, B, C#, and A are majors in the key of E (except C# which is a minor) good call SW!
