Verse 1:
E                 Gb7    
 I've given up on giving up slowly
A    
 I'm blending in so you won't even know me
Dbm7              B                   Gb7       E     A    
 Apart from this whole world that shares my fate
E              Gb7                     
 This one last bullet you mention
A    
 Is this my one last shot at redemption
Dbm7             B                        Gb7      E    A    
 Coz I know to live you must give your life away


Pre-Chorus:
               Dbm7              A             E       B    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Dbm7                A                   E                B    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Dbm7           A                      E             B    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            Gb7                                           A    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                B       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:
E B             A        B     
 I gotta get out of here
       E                B                A               B     
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
E B              A            B    
 I gotta get out of here
         Dbm7              B                    Gb7            B                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 


Verse 2:
E                 Gb7    
 I've given up on doing this alone now
A    
 Cause I failed and I'm ready to be shown how
Dbm7                 B                      Gb7      E     A    
 You've told me the way, and I'm trying to get there
E                Gb7    
 And this life sentence that I'm serving
A    
 I admit that I'm every bit deserving
Dbm7                     B                      Gb7       E      A    
 But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair


Pre-Chorus:
               Dbm7              A             E       B    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Dbm7                A                   E                B    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Dbm7           A                      E             B    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            Gb7                                           A    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                B       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:

E B              A         B     
 I gotta get out of here
         E                     B              A                     B    
 Coz I'm afraid that this complacency is something I can't shake, yeah
E B             A          B    
 I gotta get out of here
         Dbm7              B                    A                  B                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 


Bridge:
Dbm7             A    
 I am a hostage to my own humanity
E                             Gb7    
 Self-detained and forced to live in this mess I've made
Dbm7                         A    
 And all I'm asking is for you to do what you can with me
E                           Gb7    
 But I can't ask you to give what you already gave

 

Pre-Chorus:
               Dbm7              A             E       B    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Dbm7                A                   E                B    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Dbm7           A                      E             B    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            Gb7                                           A    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                B       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:
E B             A        B     
 I gotta get out of here
       E                B                A               B     
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
E B              A            B    
 I gotta get out of here
         Dbm7              B                    Gb7            B                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape


Outro - on piano -:
Bm7 A G    - 1x for acoustic version, 2x for original version -

E           Gb7            A    
 I fought you for so long, I should have let you win
 Dbm7           B                     A     
 Oh how we regret those things we do
E         Gb7            A                         Dbm7    
 And all I was trying to do was save my own skin
    B                   A     
 Oh-o, but so were you

Outro:
   So    were    you 
    B        Dbm7      E
