One Foot in Front of the Other
by Emilie Autumn

How did I get myself into all this mess?
How did I end up with this deadly home address?
How did I come to this, where every song I sing
Is nothing but a list of pain and suffering?

We never will forget, and no, we will not forgive
We've fought hard not to die, yet we don't know how to live
How do we change our world to what we want it to be?
How do we move beyond all of this misery?

One foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one…

I've been in chains since I was nothing but a kid
We don't know freedom, not quite sure that we ever did
Now that we have it, how will we make use of it?
We've been committed — now to what do we all commit?

I used to have a home, now I don't even have a name
I'm nothing but a number, here we are all the same
We've lost so much, so many of those we love are dead
How do I get these memories out of my fucking head?

One foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one…

How do we bear this burden, far too much to carry?
How to be turn our prison to a sanctuary?
We've been kept from the light, no one ever gave a damn
If I've no one to fight, how do I know who I am?

One foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one…

We waged a war with Hell, and look, we still survive
But just because we live does not mean that we're alive
We've won the final round, but how to enjoy the win
When we've been broken down and we'll never know what could have been
Heaven help us, how do we begin?

One foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one!

One!

One!
