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
Is my one last shot at redemption
Because 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
Promise I'm going.

Because I gotta get outta here
I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
I gotta get outta here
And I'm begging You
I'm begging You
I'm begging You to be my escape.

I'm giving up on doing this alone now
Cause I've failed and I'm ready to be shown how
He's told me the way and 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
Promise I'm going.

Because I gotta get outta here
I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
I gotta get outta 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
And that might be the death of me
And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
Promise I'm going.

Because I gotta get outta here
I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
I gotta get outta here
And I'm begging You
I'm begging You
I'm begging You to be my escape.

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
But so were You.

So were You.
