I've seen great tabs for this song,
but all of them were just a little bit off.
nothing too major, just enough to irk me a little bit.
anyway, I've listened to the song over and over and watched how they play it
live and I am 100 % certain that this is the way that they play it live,
as well as on the album.
Also, thanks to lovetoplaybball
for the most accurate tab on this song.
Oh yeah! One more thing.
The high pitched instrument in this song is a mandolin,
I'm not going to tab it out.
That goes for the piano too.

(Verse 1) (Chords are in accordance to the capo.)

G	       D
Ive given up, I'm giving up slowly,
Cadd9
Im blending in so you wont even know me
G           D                     G    Em/G   Cadd9
apart from this whole world that shares my fate
G               D               Cadd9
This one last bullet you mention is my one last shot at redemption
G		   D		           G  Em/G  Cadd9
because I know to live you must give your life away


(Pre-chorus)

	        Em               C        G       D
And Ive been housing all this doubt and insecurity
	   Em                  C             G                 D
Ive been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
	       Em           C                 G               D
And Ive been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
	    Am				            C
And even though, there’s no way in knowing where to go,
	      D
promise Im going because

(Chorus 1)
       G    D	          Cadd9	  D
	I---I gotta get outta here
	      G		       D               Cadd9          D
	I’m stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
       G    D	          Cadd9	  D
	I---I gotta get outta here
		 Em/G                D
	And Im begging You, I’m begging You,
	       C           D        G
	Im begging You to be my escape.

(Verse 2)
G		   D
Im giving up on doing this alone now
Cadd9
Cause Ive failed and Im ready to be shown how
G	          D	            G  Em/G    Cadd9
Hes told me the way and Im trying to get there
G	         D
And this life sentence that Im serving
Cadd9
I admit that Im every bit deserving
G		    D		          G   Em/G   Cadd9
But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair

(Pre-chorus)
	        Em               C        G       D
And Ive been housing all this doubt and insecurity
	   Em                  C             G                 D
Ive been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
	       Em           C                 G               D
And Ive been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
	    Am				            C
And even though, theres no way in knowing where to go,
	      D
promise Im going because

(Chorus 2)
       G    D	          Cadd9	  D
	I---I gotta get outta here
	       G		  D          Cadd9                 D
	Im afraid that this complacency is something I cant shake
       G    D	          Cadd9	  D
	I---I gotta get outta here
  	         Em/G                 D
	And Im begging You, Im begging You,
	       Cadd9       D        G
	Im begging You to be my escape.

(Bridge)
Em        D   C	      D
I am a hostage to my own humanity
Em       D		     C	          D
Self detained and forced to live in this mess Ive made
Em	      D	          C	     D
And all Im asking is for You to do what You can with me
Am		        C		      D
But I cant ask You to give what You already gave

(Pre-chorus)
	        Em               C        G       D
And Ive been housing all this doubt and insecurity
	   Em                  C             G                 D
Ive been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
	       Em           C                 G               D
And Ive been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
	    Am				            C
And even though, theres no way in knowing where to go,
	      D
promise Im going because

(Chorus 1)

   G    D	          Cadd9	  D
	I---I gotta get outta here
	      G		       D               Cadd9          D
	Im stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
       G    D	          Cadd9	  D
	I---I gotta get outta here
		 Em/G                D
	And Im begging You, Im begging You,
	       C           D        G
	Im begging You to be my escape

I personally think the easiest way to play the intro is like this in Standard tuning putting your ring finger on high e 2nd fret and taking your pinky on and off high e 3rd fret a few times and then moving to Cadd9.

Verses are Very close, however I found a few minor mistakes... should look like this:

G D
Ive given up, I'm giving up slowly,
Cadd9
Im blending in so you wont even know me
Em D Am7sus G/B Cadd9
apart from this whole world that shares my fate
G D Cadd9
This one last bullet you mention is my one last shot at redemption
Em D Am7sus G/B Cadd9
because I know to live you must give your life a....way
