Foo Fighters: All My Life Meaning
Song Released: 2002
All My Life Lyrics
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...

its not about addictions - grohls been quoted saying theres parts about eating a girl out... read the lyrics, its all sex. almost every line... its not ambiguous at all its actually a lot clearer than most songs out there

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.

Iys obviously about helping addiction..another reason to bleed one by one hidden up mybsleeve...done with one shot you're looking for the next one....all night long dream of the day when "it" comes around then taken away..leaves me with the feeling that I feel the most......weight keeping me down......which is what H does to people....pretty plain

You’re all wrong. He’s talking about Kurt Cobain!!!! All his life through the point that he wrote this song he felt like he’s been in the shade of Cobain”s overrated success. But he says here he’s done and on the next one (Foo Fighters) already - though still sees his ghost from time to time.

The songs about going down on a woman...or 5...lol

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.

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

its about oral sex dave has said it in interview when a fan asked look it up
anonymous Apr 30th 2012 report
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....
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

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.
