Relient K – Be My Escape 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
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,
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've given 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,
Promise I'm going because

I gotta get outta here
Cause I'm afraid that this complacency is something I can't shake
(Yeah)
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
And that might be the death of me
And even though, there's no way in knowing where to go,
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
(Oh...)
But so were You
So were You

    It means that the "sinner" has found an escape, and it's Jesus who died on the cross to save us from eternal damnation, The Key is to accept Jesus, our only way to salvation. He lives, he's watching over you and He's waiting for you to let him in your heart. Even though you don't believe in Him, it doesn't mean that he doesn't believe in you!. He loves us All =)

    I'm not a religious person so you're getting my meaning from a unreligious person about a religious song. Perfect right? I've lived my life with regret and guilt, things were holding me down and it wasn't even my fault for the guilt. I went to a catholic school which was brutal. I got verbally attacked by not only my peers but the teachers too! I found this song a couple years ago and immediately I was brought back to my days in catholic school. I feel like the song is about finally breaking free of all guilt and regrets you hold onto and you're not going to settle for poor treatment and being pulled to the bottom for the mistakes in life. I feel it's about rising above and beyond the pressures of everyday life. I mean it's all opinion based, but aren't we all? We all fall into this 'rut' accidentally. We all make mistakes but we need to stop condemning ourselves and others for the mistakes made in our lives, because we aren't perfect, none of us will ever be perfect. Nothing can truly save us but ourselves and because of this I've started to feel better about life and got a better outlook on everything.

    I'm positive about how this song means everyone is virtually stuck in a bottle, the bottle being sin, and how god is keeping us in the bottle of sin to teach us a lesson, and how we can keep ourselves from staying in the bottle by death, and that might be the only way, because jesus christ has already gone and died on the cross for us, but we continue to sin. I was in a car for a road trip and I figured out the meaning by listening to this song on a constant loop. : p

    Hes a sinner, everyones a sinner, and hes saying that hes been alone and consumed in his wrongdoings and loneliness. He feels trapped within himself, and is pleading for help to escape the pain, which the lord ends up answering. For all of you who think he was contemplating suicide, you might be right, if his situation was drastic enough. Mostly, it means that he is trying to untangle himself from the mess he's created inside himself.
