One step is a term used in basketball referring to when a player, by a sudden change of direction or some form of quick dummy (faking move), causes their defender to take a step in the wrong direction thus allowing the attacker to beat the defender.

a) A Czechoslovakian who, under Hitler's rule, was only One-Step from being considered a Jew. b) a dirty, foul-mouther, greedy, smelly, pedophilic, queer person of Czechoslovakian descent.
I mean, seriously, Kevin ... just shut the hell up. God, man ... you're such a fucking One Step. Your ass is VERY lucky Hitler isn't alive. Boy are you.

One Step Away is an alternative rock/pop band from Andover, Massachusetts. They gotten recognition in the whole Boston area music scene due to the bassist's mom. His mom works for the music industry and she spoiled them to be famous. If it wasn't for the bassist's mom, the band would get absolutely no where. The music is very generic and lacks charisma. This band is just another terrible clone of a well known Andover band called Boys Like Girls.
Person 1: I think Acacius, Boys Like Girls, Contained Chaos, One Step Away, and Spyria are good bands from Andover, MA.

Person 2: Nah dude, all those bands are terrible, Andover has one of the worst music scenes ever, all of those bands you listed lack charisma without a doubt.

Person 1: I still love One Step Away, there kinda like Boys Like Girls.

Person 2: Oh shut the fuck up, One Step Away is probably gayest on the list band next to Boys Like Girls. And by the way get this straight, "Fuck Andover, MA, and their terrible music scene! Thank You!"

You think you fooled me? I am always one step ahead of you Mike.

1. Being on the edge of something; knowing that what happens next will make or break you.
With his reputation in the hands of others he was one step short of falling.
