All my life I’ve been searching for somethin’
Somethin’ never comes, never leads to nothin’
Nothin’ satisfies, but I’m gettin’ close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope

All night long I dream of the day
When it comes around, and...

    Pretty much like everyone else, I think this song is about sex and a man's addiction to it. He says that all his life he's been looking for some kind of satisfaction. Sex makes him feel complete. He's with someone, probably doesn't love them but enjoy' s doing it with her. "Calm down, don’t you resist. Your such a delicate wrist." That suggests that maybe she's put off by his sexual advances but at the same time he likes the challenge of getting her to bed. "Will I find the believer, another one who believes, another one to deceive." He's hoping that he'll find more women to sleep with. He likes duping them into thinking there's something more meaningful behind their relationship. "I love it but I hate the taste" Could mean anything. It could be a literal reference to sex or it could mean the love/hate relationship of his addiction. He loves sex but hates the fact that he's willing to go so far to get it. When he sings "Done, done and I'm on to the next one" is kind of obvious, he's refering to all the women he's sleeping with. I don't know how correct I am but that's how I interpret the song.

    To me it seems like he might be talking about asteroth or ester. Both probably spelled wrong.....
    but its really kind of open ended except with the deceivers ,, which tells me that these are all women that
    a. never hang out together
    b. All have different menstruation weeks
    c. By the way the song lyrics go ... he’s eating it and she’s probably sitting on him
    Who really knows to what god for what reward but you can try to hear it in this light and you might get something revealed to you....
    oh and the intermission when the band is dancing in front the red rectangle of lights this should be obvious! It’s a pad and band are the eggs ... given to whatever god and so on .... do enjoy
    Also, a similar song by
    rob zombie- never gonna stop

    I might be wrong - but I think it's about going down on a woman when she is on her period. The end of the rope is referring to a tampon. Going down on a girl normally was okay but not quite what he wanted - he loves it but he hates the taste.

    I think it's about heroin

    One by one hidden up my sleeve
    (Track marks/ injecting)

    Love it but I hate the taste
    (Loves the feeling but that stuff tastes like ****)

    Anonymous from Feb, 2011 clearly has some issues. I see nothing about psychopathy or rape or murder here.

    "Feel it come alive when I see your ghost" is genius literally and figuratively. He's saying that he gets hard when he sees her clitoris which to some men is as elusive as a ghost.

    I believe that this song is about him perfoming oral sex, but it's not clear whether it's on a woman or a man. xD

    After listening to this cracking track about 100 times, I am convinced this is something to do with addiction and Mr Grohl saying it is about cunnilingus is just a red herring...

    Lots of metaphors - another reason to bleed, one by one hidden up my sleeve could mean track marks from injecting heroin.

    Most drugs taken orally taste horrible but get you high.

    Drug addicts often call other people who take the same drugs believers....

    I believe everyone is right, in part, with their interpretation of "All My Life", because I believe it's a song about ALL addictions, whether that addiction be drugs, sex, religion, etc. and the terrible depression and worthlessness that comes and goes with addiction. It obviously makes people think about "their" addiction!

    Its about a guy going down on a woman, and driving her to multiple orgasms this is a very good and dirty song.

    I believe all are potentially true. However I think its general for a demon looking to poses a human. Never leads to nothin means that once the demon finishes using a human it didn't benefit him in any way except leading the human to destruction and death. Then he goes and does the same thing to the next sinful human. Hidden up my sleave to me is talking about the tricks they do to humans to allure them to sin.. because they can only poses sinful hearts. So if a person slits their wrist a masocism demon applies. A sexual feind attracts a nympho demon. Listen to it from this perspective.. "will I find a beleiver? Another one to deceive." "if I get any closer and If you let me inside" I love it but I hate the taste is the human saying its a love hate feeling with his demon
