So this is the first thing I've ever done on here, and I honestly think I did a 
good job, haha. But yeah, feel free to make any changes, copy this, do whatever you like. Thanks!

---CAPO 2---

Verse 1:
G              D
I’ve given up on giving up slowly, 
Em                     C
I’m blending in so you won’t even know me 
G           D                     Em    D   C
A part from this whole world that shares my fate
G               D               Em               C
This one last bullet you mention is my one last shot at redemption
G                 D                      Em   D   C
‘cause I know to live you must give your life a--way

Pre-chorus:
                Em               C        G       D
And I’ve been housing all this doubt and insecurity
           Em                  C             G                 D
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, 
              D
promise I’m going because

Chorus:
       G    D            C      D
        I---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---I gotta get outta here 
                 Em                D
        And I’m begging You, I’m begging You, 
               C           D        G
        I’m begging You to be my escape.

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


Pre-chorus: 
                Em               C        G       D
And I’ve been housing all this doubt and insecurity
           Em                  C             G                 D
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, 
              D
promise I’m going because



Chorus: (slight change in wording)
       G    D            C      D
        I---I gotta get outta here 
               G                  D          C                 D
        I'm afraid that this complicity is something I can't shake
       G    D            C      D
        I---I gotta get outta here 
                 Em                 D
        And I’m begging You, I’m begging You, 
               C           D        G
        I’m 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 I’ve made
Em            D                  C         D
And all I’m asking is for You to do what You can with me
A                       C                    D        
But I can’t ask You to give what You already gave 


Pre-chorus:             Em               C        G       D
And I’ve been housing all this doubt and insecurity
           Em                  C             G                 D
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, 
              D
promise I’m going because

Chorus:
       G    D            C      D
        I---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---I gotta get outta here 
                 Em                D
        And I’m begging You, I’m begging You, 
               C           D        G
        I’m begging You to be my escape.
