    Lyrics

    I've given up on giving up slowly
    I'm blending in so you won't even know me
    Apart from this whole world that shares my fate
    This one last bullet you mention
    It's my one last shot at redemption
    Cause I know to live you must give your life away

    And I've been housing all this doubt
    and insecurity
    And I've been locked inside that house
    All the while you hold the key
    And I've been dying to get out
    And that might be the death of me
    And even though there's no way of knowing
    Where to go
    I promise I'm going because,

    I gotta get out of here
    I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
    I gotta get out of here
    And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape

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

    Cause I've been housing all this doubt
    and insecurity
    And I've been locked inside that house
    All the while you hold the key
    And I've been dying to get out
    And that might be the death of me
    And even though there's no way of knowing
    Where to go
    I promise I'm going because,

    I gotta get out of here
    Cause I'm afraid that this complacency is something I can't shake (yeah)
    I gotta get out of here
    And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape

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

    Cause I've been housing all this doubt
    and insecurity
    And I've been locked inside that house
    All the while you hold the key
    And I've been dying to get out
    That might be the death of me
    And even though there's no way of knowing
    Where to go
    I promise I'm going because,

    I gotta get out of here
    I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
    I gotta get out of here
    And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape

    Radio edit doesn't have this verse:

    I fought you for so long
    I should have let you in
    Oh how we regret those things we do
    And all I was trying to do was save my own skin (oh)
    But so were you
    So were you
