Song 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

relient k is serisouly the coolest band ever. not only do they make great music, but they're christian. so many people are in love with these songs and don't even realize they're listening to christian music. relient k is so subtle about their faith to those who are unsure, but loud to their fellow christians. i love it

I really like this song... but really hate how cliche, preppy, and sexual people have made this song. Ergh. One of the strongest Christian songs on the album... but it's totally missing one thing: God.
