One Foot In Front Of The Other By Emilie Autumn

How did I get myself into all of this mess?
How did I end up with this deadly holocaust?
How did I come to this when every song I sing
is nothing but a list of pain and suffering?

We never will forget, and no, we will not forgive.
We walk along 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…

I’ve been in chains since I was nothing but a kid
We don’t know freedom, not quite sure if we ever did
Now that we’ve found it, how do we make use of it
We’ve been commited… to what we always did
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 ******* 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…

How do we bear this burden far too much to carry
How do we change the 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…

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’ve been.

Heaven help us where 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…

One!
One!
One!
