Standard tuning, CAPO 2nd fret

I kno there are certain specific names for these chords
but then wen chucked in with the lyrics it wud be too
crammed to fit the whole names in so lets just stick
with simple names yis? and btw for ceratin parts u dont hav
to strum the e and B string.. wateva floats ya boat i guess. 
So just use these chords for the song:

  G      A7Sus4   Cadd9     Em7      Dsus4     G/B
E---3    E---3    E---3    E---3    E---3    E---3
B---3    B---3    B---3    B---3    B---3    B---3
G---0    G---0    G---0    G---0    G---2    G---0
D---0    D---2    D---2    D---2    D---0    D---x
A---2    A---0    A---3    A---2    A---x    A---2
E---3    E---x    E---x    E---0    E---x    E---x

Verse 1:
G                 A7Sus4
 I've given up on giving up slowly
Cadd9
 I'm blending in so you won't even know me
Em7              Dsus4               A7Sus4   G/B  Cadd9
 Apart from this whole world that shares my fate
G              A7Sus4                 
 This one last bullet you mention
Cadd9
 Is this my one last shot at redemption
Em7             Dsus4                    A7Sus4  G/B Cadd9
 Coz I know to live you must give your life away


Pre-Chorus:
               Em7              Cadd9         G       Dsus4
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Em7                Cadd9               G                Dsus4
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Em7           Cadd9                  G             Dsus4
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            A7Sus4                                       Cadd9
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                Dsus4   (chucka-chucka)
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:
G Dsus4         Cadd9    Dsus4 
 I gotta get out of here
       G                Dsus4            Cadd9           Dsus4 
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
G Dsus4          Cadd9        Dsus4
 I gotta get out of here
         Em7              Dsus4                A7Sus4        Dsus4               
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 


Verse 2:
G                 A7Sus4
 I've given up on doing this alone now
Cadd9
 Cause I failed and I'm ready to be shown how
Em7                 Dsus4                  A7Sus4  G/B  Cadd9
 You've told me the way, and I'm trying to get there
G                A7Sus4
 And this life sentence that I'm serving
Cadd9
 I admit that I'm every bit deserving
Em7                     Dsus4                  A7Sus4   G/B   Cadd9
 But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair


Pre-Chorus:
               Em7              Cadd9         G       Dsus4
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Em7                Cadd9               G                Dsus4
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Em7           Cadd9                  G             Dsus4
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            A7Sus4                                       Cadd9
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                Dsus4   (chucka-chucka)
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:

G Dsus4          Cadd9     Dsus4 
 I gotta get out of here
         G                     Dsus4          Cadd9                 Dsus4
 Coz I'm afraid that this complacency is something I can't shake, yeah
G Dsus4         Cadd9      Dsus4
 I gotta get out of here
         Em7              Dsus4                Cadd9              Dsus4               
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 


Bridge:
I've split the bridge into two parts,
The lead riff:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------2-2---------------------------------------------------2---------|
A|-------------2-2-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------|
E|-0-0-0-3-------------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------|

And the chords:
Em7             Cadd9
 I am a hostage to my own humanity
G                             A7Sus4
 Self-detained and forced to live in this mess I've made
Em7                         Cadd9
 And all I'm asking is for you to do what you can with me
G                           A7Sus4
 But I can't ask you to give what you already gave

 

Pre-Chorus:
               Em7              Cadd9         G       Dsus4
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Em7                Cadd9               G                Dsus4
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Em7           Cadd9                  G             Dsus4
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            A7Sus4                                       Cadd9
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                Dsus4   (chucka-chucka)
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:
G Dsus4         Cadd9    Dsus4 
 I gotta get out of here
       G                Dsus4            Cadd9           Dsus4 
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
G Dsus4          Cadd9        Dsus4
 I gotta get out of here
         Em7              Dsus4                A7Sus4        Dsus4               
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape


Outro:
The outro is optional coz its played by piano,
but I'll tab the chords out anyway:

Em7 Dsus Cadd9 only once for the acoustic version, but they do this
twice for the original version

G           A7Sus4        Cadd9
 I fought you for so long, I should have let you win
 Em7           Dsus4                 Cadd9 
 Oh how we regret those things we do
G         A7Sus4        Cadd9                     Em7    
 And all I was trying to do was save my own skin
    Dsus4               Cadd9 
 Oh-o, but so were you

End with this: (coz its cool)
   So    were    you 
e|--------0~-----3~-------|
B|--3~-----------3~-------|
G|---------------0~-------|
D|---------------0~-------|
A|---------------2~-------|
E|---------------3~-------|
    Dsus4    Em7      G


lol
