Verse 1:
G			D 
I've given up on giving up slowly
C
I'm blending in so you won't even know me
Em		D			     G  Bm  C
Apart from this whole world that shares my fate
G             D   
This one last call that You mentioned 
C
Is my one last shot at redemption 
Em			D             G        Bm   C
Because I know to live you must give your life away 

Prechorus: 
          
               Em               C       G         D
And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity 
               Em                C              G                 D
And I've been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key 
              Em                C              G                 D
And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me 
         A                          C     
And even though, there's no way in knowing where to go, promise I'm 
D
going 

Because 




Chorus:
   G   D            C       D
   I     gotta get outta here 
    G                D             C          D 
I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake 
G    D          C         D
   I     gotta get outta here
         Em          D            C              D
And I'm begging You, begging You, begging You to be my escape. 

Verse 2:

I'm giving up I'm 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 

Chorus 2: (Same as Chorus 1)

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 
I gotta get outta here 
Cause I'm afraid that this complacency is something I can't shake 
I gotta get outta here 
And I'm begging You, I'm begging You, I'm begging You to be my escape. 

Bridge:
Em               C  
I am a hostage    to my own humanity 
Em                           C
Self detained and forced to live in this mess I've made 
Em                       C   
And all I'm asking is for You to do what You can with me
A                     C                     D (let ring)
But I can't ask You to give what You already gave 

Chorus 3: (Same as Chorus 1)
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 
I've gotta get outta here 
I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake 
I've gotta get outta here 
And I'm begging You, I'm begging You, I'm begging 
You to be my escape. 

Outro/Ending: All Piano

I fought You for so long 
I should have let You win 
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

hey, nice tab and awesome song too. although, a little bit of advice to you is that the song (along with the rest of the CD) is tuned a half step down. maybe that'll help you figure out a few of the chords. but its still a nice tab and keep up the good work!
