Verse 1:
	G	       D
	Iíve given up, I'm giving up slowly, 
	C
	Iím blending in so you wonít 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

		   Em                  C             G                 D
	Iíve been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
		       Em           C                 G               D
	And Iíve been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
		    Am				            C
	And even though, thereís no way in knowing where to go, 
		      D
	promise Iím going because


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

Verse 2:
	G		   D
	Iím giving up on doing this alone now
	C
	Cause Iíve failed and Iím ready to be shown how
	Em	          D	            Am  Em    C
	Heís told me the way and Iím trying to get there
	G	         D
	And this life sentence that Iím serving
	C
	I admit that Iím 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 Iíve been dying to get out and that might be the death of me

	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

Bridge:
	Em        D   C	      D
	I am a hostage to my own humanity

	Self detained and forced to live in this mess Iíve made
	Em	      D	          C	     D
	And all Iím asking is for You to do what You can with me
	Am		        C		      D	
	  But I canít ask You to give what You already gave

	Iíve been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
		       Em           C                 G               D
	And Iíve been dying to get out and that might be the death of me

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
