Be My Escape Lyrics - Relient K

Review The Song (17)



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.

'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 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’m giving 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
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
But so were You...

So were You

Christian Journey.. | Reviewer: SalvoChick | 9/12/10

this song is quite amazing..
i downloaded it last week when my friend told me how much she loves it but i only just got to looking up the lyrics and looking deep into the song (which is what i do with every song now lol)..
and it's kinda funny because for the last couple of weeks i've been stuck in a rut with my Christianity.. i've been getting into bad habbits with swearing and horrible thoughts etc.
so yeah, i have no doubt that God guided my friend to show me this song because it's somehow it's actually helped alot..

also, I'm seeing Relient K and Paramore on October 12th this year so YAY!! soooo stoked! :D

Loveit | Reviewer: Burtney | 2/1/09

This song is definately talking about God! Struggles...and then...we all need God. And its finding that out.
"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."
Thats really cool. Like, asking Him..'God, do something!!'..and then realizing He already gave His Son to forgive us. That's his escape..

This is an all-around amazing song, and especially great in times of a spiritual 'rut'. Anyone who's ever felt trapped can certainly identify with this song. Relient K is just awesome in general.



loooove. | Reviewer: rk. | 12/31/07

amazing song. even though the "you" is almost definitely referring to jesus [they are a godrock band after all], the message goes well beyond that... i'm not christian, but this song may very well have saved my life. i hope it's done the same for somebody else. :}

It's cool | Reviewer: Ashlee Copeland | 9/21/06

this be my escape actually consist of 2 part of rock... one is hard rock which is the introduction, second is the singing part which is gentle rock... this song is exceptionally cool for relient k as it's not their style...
