Verse 1:
Eb                 F7    
 I've given up on giving up slowly
Ab    
 I'm blending in so you won't even know me
Cm7              Bb                   F7       Eb     Ab    
 Apart from this whole world that shares my fate
Eb              F7                     
 This one last bullet you mention
Ab    
 Is this my one last shot at redemption
Cm7             Bb                        F7      Eb    Ab    
 Coz I know to live you must give your life away


Pre-Chorus:
               Cm7              Ab             Eb       Bb    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Cm7                Ab                   Eb                Bb    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Cm7           Ab                      Eb             Bb    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            F7                                           Ab    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                Bb       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:
Eb Bb             Ab        Bb     
 I gotta get out of here
       Eb                Bb                Ab               Bb     
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
Eb Bb              Ab            Bb    
 I gotta get out of here
         Cm7              Bb                    F7            Bb                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 


Verse 2:
Eb                 F7    
 I've given up on doing this alone now
Ab    
 Cause I failed and I'm ready to be shown how
Cm7                 Bb                      F7      Eb     Ab    
 You've told me the way, and I'm trying to get there
Eb                F7    
 And this life sentence that I'm serving
Ab    
 I admit that I'm every bit deserving
Cm7                     Bb                      F7       Eb      Ab    
 But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair


Pre-Chorus:
               Cm7              Ab             Eb       Bb    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Cm7                Ab                   Eb                Bb    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Cm7           Ab                      Eb             Bb    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            F7                                           Ab    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                Bb       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:

Eb Bb              Ab         Bb     
 I gotta get out of here
         Eb                     Bb              Ab                     Bb    
 Coz I'm afraid that this complacency is something I can't shake, yeah
Eb Bb             Ab          Bb    
 I gotta get out of here
         Cm7              Bb                    Ab                  Bb                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 


Bridge:
Cm7             Ab    
 I am a hostage to my own humanity
Eb                             F7    
 Self-detained and forced to live in this mess I've made
Cm7                         Ab    
 And all I'm asking is for you to do what you can with me
Eb                           F7    
 But I can't ask you to give what you already gave

 

Pre-Chorus:
               Cm7              Ab             Eb       Bb    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Cm7                Ab                   Eb                Bb    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Cm7           Ab                      Eb             Bb    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            F7                                           Ab    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                Bb       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:
Eb Bb             Ab        Bb     
 I gotta get out of here
       Eb                Bb                Ab               Bb     
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
Eb Bb              Ab            Bb    
 I gotta get out of here
         Cm7              Bb                    F7            Bb                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape

Eb           F7            Ab    
 I fought you for so long, I should have let you win
 Cm7           Bb                     Ab     
 Oh how we regret those things we do
Eb         F7            Ab                         Cm7    
 And all I was trying to do was save my own skin
    Bb                   Ab     
 Oh-o, but so were you

Outro:
   So    were    you
