03. Be My Escape (Acoustic)

Apathetic EP
by Relient K



 

Iíve given up on giving up slowly
Iím blending in so you wonít even know me
Apart from this whole world that shares my fate

And this one last bullet you mention
Is my one last shot at redemption
Cause I know to live you must give your life away

And Iíve been housing all this doubt
And insecurity
And Iíve been locked inside that house
All the while you hold the key
And Iíve been dying to get out
And that might be the death of me
And even though thereís no way of knowing
Where to go I promise Iím going

Because
I got to get out of here
Iím stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
I got to get out of here
And Iím begging you
Iím begging you
Iím begging you to be my escape

Iíve given up on doing this alone now
Cause Iíve failed and Iím ready to be shown how
Youíve told me the way, and now Iím trying to get there

And this life sentence that Iím serving
I admit, that Iím every bit deserving
But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair

And Iíve been housing all this doubt
And insecurity
And Iíve been locked inside that house
All the while you hold the key
And Iíve been dying to get out
And that might be the death of me
And even though thereís no way of knowing
Where to go I promise Iím going

Because
I got to get out of here
Cause Iím afraid that this complacency is something I canít shake
I got to get out of here
And Iím begging you
Iím begging you
Iím begging you to be my escape

I am a hostage to my own humanity
Self detained and forced to live in this mess Iíve made
And all Iím asking is for you to do what you can with me
But I canít ask you to give what you already gave

Cause Iíve been housing all this doubt
And insecurity
And Iíve been locked inside that house
All the while you hold the key
And Iíve been dying to get out
And that might be the death of me
And even though thereís no way of knowing
Where to go I promise Iím going

Because
I got to get out of here
Iím stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
I got to get out of here
And Iím begging you
Iím begging you
Iím begging you to be my escape

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
