funky but I think its something like:

Verse 1:
A5			B5  
I've given up on giving up slowly
D5
I'm blending in so you won't even know me
F#5		E5			     A5  C#5  D5
Apart from this whole world that shares my fate
A5             B5   
This one last call that You mentioned 
D5
Is my one last shot at redemption 
F#5			E5             A5       C#5   D5
Because I know to live you must give your life away 

Prechorus: 
          
              F#5               D5       A5         E5
And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity 
              F#5                D5            A5                 E5
And I've been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key 
              F#5          D5                 A5              E5
And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me 
         B5 (p.m. if you want)                         D5     
And even though, there's no way in knowing where to go, promise I'm 
E5
going 
(mute the strings and strum quickly four times)
Because

Chorus:
A5    E5           D5         E5
   I     gotta get outta here 
    A5                E5              D5          E5(mute effect again)  
I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake 
A5    E5           D5         E5
   I     gotta get outta here
        F#5          E5           D5             E5
And I'm begging You, begging You, begging You to be my escape. 

Verse 2:
e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------7-7--7----7-7--7----11--9-----6--7--|

    . .       . .        . .       . .

I'm giving up I'm 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 

Chorus 2: (Same as Chorus 1)

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 in knowing where to go, promise I'm going because 
I gotta get outta here 
Cause I'm afraid that this complacency is something I can't shake 
I gotta get outta here 
And I'm begging You, I'm begging You, I'm begging You to be my escape. 

Bridge:
F#5            D5  
I am a hostage    to my own humanity 
F#5                         D5
Self detained and forced to live in this mess I've made 
F#5                       D5   
And all I'm asking is for You to do what You can with me
B5                     D5                     E5 (let ring)
But I can't ask You to give what You already gave 

Chorus 3: (Same as Chorus 1)
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 in knowing where to go, promise I'm going because 
I've gotta get outta here 
I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake 
I've gotta get outta here 
And I'm begging You, I'm begging You, I'm begging 
You to be my escape. 

Outro/Ending: All Piano

I fought You for so long 
I should have let You win 
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
