I tried to put it as simply as possible in my last post, though I admit I may not be as eloquent as some in this forum. In my opinion, the narrorator's anxiety is caused by the conflict he feels about the criticisms from the Church(which he refuses to go to, but may still govern his emotions) of the things which have given him pleasure/pourpose in his life, the Pub,and the Cinema.

I hate to overanylise a song, especially one like this which is very complex. Martin is right. The song is not in any particular chronology and does not tell one story, but a number of them which are not necassarily related, much like the previews and short features before a main feature at a movie.
