set tempo
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Standard tuning, CAPO 2nd fret

I kno there are certain specific names for these chords
but then wen chucked in with the lyrics it wud be too
crammed to fit the whole names in so lets just stick
with simple names yis? and btw for ceratin parts u dont hav
to strum the e and B string.. wateva floats ya boat i guess. 
So just use these chords for the song:

   G      Am        C       Em        D        B
E---3    E---3    E---3    E---3    E---3    E---3
B---3    B---3    B---3    B---3    B---3    B---3
G---0    G---0    G---0    G---0    G---2    G---0
D---0    D---2    D---2    D---2    D---0    D---x
A---2    A---0    A---3    A---2    A---x    A---2
E---3    E---x    E---x    E---0    E---x    E---x

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

               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
            Am                                       C
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                D   (chucka-chucka)
 I promise I'm going because...

G D           C        D 
 I gotta get out of here
       G                D              C           D 
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
G D           C        D
 I gotta get out of here
         Em               D                C(or Am)        D               
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 

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


G D           C        D 
 I gotta get out of here
         G                     D          C                 D
 Coz I'm afraid that this complacency is something I can't shake, yeah
G D           C        D
 I gotta get out of here
         Em               D                C              D               
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 

I've split the bridge into two parts,
The lead riff:

And the chords:
Em             C
 I am a hostage to my own humanity
G                             Am
 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
G                           Am
 But I can't ask you to give what you already gave

Pre-Chorus (played single strumming)


The outro is optional coz its played by piano,
but I'll tab the chords out anyway:

Em D C only once for the acoustic version, but they do this
twice for the original version

G           Am         C
 I fought you for so long, I should have let you win
 Em           D                   C 
 Oh how we regret those things we do
G         Am        C                         Em    
 And all I was trying to do was save my own skin
    D                C 
 Oh-o, but so were you

End with this: (coz its cool)
   So    were    you 
    D     Em      G
