Verse 1

G [A7Sus4] I've given up on giving up slowly Cadd9 I'm blending in so you won't even know me Em7 Dsus4 [A7Sus4] G/B Cadd9 Apart from this whole world that shares my fate G [A7Sus4] This one last bullet you mention Cadd9 Is this my one last shot at redemption Em7 Dsus4 [A7Sus4] G/B Cadd9 Coz I know to live you must give your life away

Pre-chorus

And I've been Em7housing all this Cadd9doubt and inseGcurity Dsus4 And I've been Em7locked inside that Cadd9house all the while Gyou hold the key Dsus4 And I've been Em7dying to get oCadd9ut and that might be thGe death of me Dsus4 [A7Sus4] Cadd9 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go I promise I'm gDsus4oing because...

Chorus

G IDsus4 gotta get outCadd9 of here Dsus4 I'm stGuck inside this rDsus4ut that I fell inCadd9to by mistake Dsus4 G IDsus4 gotta get out Cadd9of here Dsus4 Em7 Dsus4 [A7Sus4] Dsus4 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape

Verse 2

G [A7Sus4] I've given up on doing this alone now Cadd9 Cause I failed and I'm ready to be shown how Em7 Dsus4 [A7Sus4] G/B Cadd9 You've told me the way, and I'm trying to get there G [A7Sus4] And this life sentence that I'm serving Cadd9 I admit that I'm every bit deserving Em7 Dsus4 [A7Sus4] G/B Cadd9 But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair

Pre-chorus

And I've been Em7housing all this Cadd9doubt and inseGcurity Dsus4 And I've been Em7locked inside that Cadd9house all the while Gyou hold the key Dsus4 And I've been Em7dying to get oCadd9ut and that might be thGe death of me Dsus4 [A7Sus4] Cadd9 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go I promise I'm gDsus4oing because...

Chorus

G IDsus4 gotta get out Cadd9of here Dsus4 Coz I'm Gafraid that this complDsus4acency is sometCadd9hing I can't shake, yeDsus4ah G IDsus4 gotta get outCadd9 of here Dsus4 And I'm Em7begging you, I'm Dsus4begging you, I'm beggCadd9ing you to be my esDsus4cape

Bridge

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

B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------2-2---------------------------------------------------2---------|
A|-------------2-2-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------|
E|-0-0-0-3-------------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------|
And the chords: Em7 I am a hostage Cadd9to my own humanity G [A7Sus4] Self-detained and forced to live in this mess I've made Em7 And all I'm asking is for yCadd9ou to do what you can with me G [A7Sus4] But I can't ask you to give what you already gave

Pre-chorus

And I've been Em7housing all this Cadd9doubt and inseGcurity Dsus4 And I've been Em7locked inside that Cadd9house all the while Gyou hold the key Dsus4 And I've been Em7dying to get oCadd9ut and that might be thGe death of me Dsus4 [A7Sus4] Cadd9 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go I promise I'm gDsus4oing because...

Chorus

G IDsus4 gotta get outCadd9 of here Dsus4 I'm stGuck inside this rDsus4ut that I fell inCadd9to by mistake Dsus4 G IDsus4 gotta get out Cadd9of here Dsus4 Em7 Dsus4 [A7Sus4] Dsus4 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape

Outro

The outro is optional coz its played by piano, but I'll tab the chords out anyway: Em7 Dsus Cadd9 only once for the acoustic version, but they do this twice for the original version G [A7Sus4] Cadd9 I fought you for so long, I should have let you win Em7Oh how we regrDsus4et those things we do Cadd9 G [A7Sus4] Cadd9 Em7 And all I was trying to do was save my own skin Oh-Dsus4o, but so were you Cadd9
End with this: (coz its cool)
   So    were    you
