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 in knowing
Where to go I 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 in knowing
Where to go I 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

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 in knowing
Where to go I 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

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

THIESSEN, MATTHEW ARNOLD
