Fun – One Foot lyrics

I'm standing in Brooklyn just waiting for something to happen
I can't help but look thinking that everyone doesn't get it
To my left is a window, where did I go
My reflection just blends in to rows of clothes
And bad ideas, ideas nonetheless, and so

I'll put one foot in front of the other one
I don't need a new love, or a new life
Just a better place to die

I'll put one foot in front of the other one
I don't need a new love, or a new life
Just a better place to die

I happened to stumble upon a chapel last night
And I can't help but back up when I think of what happens inside
I've got friends locked in boxes, that's no way to live
What you're calling a sin, isn't up to them
Afterall, afterall I thought we were all your children
But I will die for my own sins, thanks a lot
We will rise up ourselves, thanks for nothing at all
So up off the ground, our forefathers are nothing but dust now

I'll put one foot in front of the other one
I don't need a new love, or a new life
Just a better place to die

I'll put one foot in front of the other one
I don't need a new love, or a new life
Just a better place to die

Maybe I should learn to shut my mouth
I am over twenty-five
And I can't make a name for myself
Some nights I break down and cry
I'm lucky that my father's still alive
He's been fighting all his life
And if this is all I've ever known
then may his soul live on forever in my song

I'll put one foot in front of the other one
I don't need a new love, or a new life
Just a better place to die

I'll put one foot in front of the other one
I don't need a new love, or a new life
Just a better place to die

In front of the other one
In front of the other one
Just a better place to die

    I think this song has to do with the idea of religion and how he wants to believe in the idea of an afterlife, but for right now, all he can do is keep living his life the way he sees fit. Also, he seems frustrated with the blind beliefs that so many hold and contradict on a daily basis. He'd rather be true to his beliefs, even if it means, "sinning," and acknowledging it.
