[Intro]

(Em  Am)x3   C  D


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


[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
                    Am                                      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
        C
        Cause I’ve failed and I’m ready to be shown how
        Em                D                Am  Em    C
        He’s told me the way and I’m trying to get there
        G                D
        And this life sentence that I’m serving
        C
        I admit that I’m every bit deserving 
        Em                  D                    Am   Em   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
                    Am                                      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 afraid that this complacency 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        Em
        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
        Am                      C                    D        
          But I can’t ask You to give what You already gave


[Pre-Chorus]
(played single strumming)

                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
                    Am                                      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        Em
        I’m begging You to be my escape.


[Outro]
(optional, but worth it)

Em D C    Em D C

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

    D     C      G
   So    were    you
