Artist: Relient K
Song: Be My Escape Acoustic
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] [Dsus] [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] I've given up on [A7sus4]giving up slowly
[Cadd9] I'm blending in so you won't even know me
[Em7] Apart from this [Dsus]whole world that sh[A7sus4]ares my f[G/B]ate[Cadd9]
[G] This one last [A7sus4]bullet you mention
[Cadd9] Is this my one last shot at redemption
[Em7] Coz I know to l[Dsus]ive you must give your l[A7sus4]ife away[G/B] [Cadd9]
Pre-Chorus:
And I've been [Em7]housing all this [Cadd9]doubt and inse[G]curity[Dsus]
And I've been [Em7]locked inside that [Cadd9]house all the while [G]you hold the key[Dsus]
And I've been [Em7]dying to get o[Cadd9]ut and that might be th[G]e death of me[Dsus]
And even th[A7sus4]ough there's no way of knowing where to go[Cadd9]
Dsus (chucka-chucka)
I promise I'm going because...
Chorus:
[G] I[Dsus] gotta get ou[Cadd9]t of here[Dsus]
I'm st[G]uck inside this r[Dsus]ut that I fell i[Cadd9]nto by mistake[Dsus]
[G] I[Dsus] gotta get out[Cadd9] of here[Dsus]
And I'm [Em7]begging you, I'm [Dsus]begging you, I'm beg[A7sus4]ging you to be[Dsus] my escape
Verse 2:
[G] I've given up on [A7sus4]doing this alone now
[Cadd9] Cause I failed and I'm ready to be shown how
[Em7] You've told me the [Dsus]way, and I'm trying to[A7sus4] get the[G/B]re[Cadd9]
[G] And this life se[A7sus4]ntence that I'm serving
[Cadd9] I admit that I'm every bit deserving
[Em7] But the beauty of grace[Dsus] is that it makes life[A7sus4] not fair[G/B] [Cadd9]
Pre-Chorus:
And I've been [Em7]housing all this [Cadd9]doubt and inse[G]curity[Dsus]
And I've been [Em7]locked inside that [Cadd9]house all the while [G]you hold the key[Dsus]
And I've been [Em7]dying to get o[Cadd9]ut and that might be th[G]e death of me[Dsus]
And even th[A7sus4]ough there's no way of knowing where to go[Cadd9]
Dsus (chucka-chucka)
I promise I'm going because...
Chorus:
[G] I[Dsus] gotta get out[Cadd9] of here[Dsus]
Coz I'm [G]afraid that this compl[Dsus]acency is some[Cadd9]thing I can't shake, y[Dsus]eah
[G] I[Dsus] gotta get ou[Cadd9]t of here[Dsus]
And I'm [Em7]begging you, I'm [Dsus]begging you, I'm beg[Cadd9]ging you to be my e[Dsus]scape
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] I am a hostage [Cadd9]to my own humanity
[G] Self-detained and forced to l[A7sus4]ive in this mess I've made
[Em7] And all I'm asking is for y[Cadd9]ou to do what you can with me
[G] But I can't ask you to give[A7sus4] what you already gave
Pre-Chorus:
And I've been [Em7]housing all this [Cadd9]doubt and inse[G]curity[Dsus]
And I've been [Em7]locked inside that [Cadd9]house all the while [G]you hold the key[Dsus]
And I've been [Em7]dying to get o[Cadd9]ut and that might be th[G]e death of me[Dsus]
And even th[A7sus4]ough there's no way of knowing where to go[Cadd9]
Dsus (chucka-chucka)
I promise I'm going because...
Chorus:
[G] I[Dsus] gotta get ou[Cadd9]t of here[Dsus]
I'm st[G]uck inside this r[Dsus]ut that I fell i[Cadd9]nto by mistake[Dsus]
[G] I[Dsus] gotta get out[Cadd9] of here[Dsus]
And I'm [Em7]begging you, I'm [Dsus]begging you, I'm beg[A7sus4]ging you to be[Dsus] 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] I fought yo[A7sus4]u for so long,[Cadd9] I should have let you win
[Em7]Oh how we regr[Dsus]et those things we do[Cadd9]
[G] And all I[A7sus4] was trying to[Cadd9] do was save my own skin[Em7]
Oh-[Dsus]o, but so were you[Cadd9]
End with this: (coz its cool)
So were you
 
 e|--------0~-----3~-------|
 B|--3~-----------3~-------|
 G|---------------0~-------|
 D|---------------0~-------|
 A|---------------2~-------|
 E|---------------3~-------|

[Dsus] [Em7] [G]
