All The Love In The World
The idea of the narrator being or feeling "a million miles away," as sung in this song as an incomplete verse line, seems to reference or relate to the same idea as sung first in "Hurt." It would also be mentioned again in "1,000,000." Whether the three songs are all specifically related beyond repetition of the phrase is publicly unverified.
All The Love In The World
The song begins with a nearly monotone Trent Reznor singing the verses and repeating, "Why do you get all the love in the world?" Synth drums are used in a slow IDM-esque drumbeat. About three minutes into the song an interpolation occurs. The song transitions into a set of piano chords backed by Grohl's tom-led drums, and eventually a bass guitar beneath layers of Reznor's vocals.
All The Love In The World (The Definitive NIN - Deep Cuts)
In the song's appearance on The Definitive NIN - Deep Cuts, there is a layer of additional samples - speech taken from The Twilight Zone episode "When The Sky Was Opened".
"All The Love In The World" made its live debut on November 5, 2013 in San Antonio, TX during the Tension 2013 Tour. Originally like "Sunspots", the song was never played live and only performed at soundchecks and rehearsals with vocals. One of those soundchecks can be heard here.
Watching all the insects march along Seem to know just right where they belong Smears of face reflecting in the chrome Hiding in the crowd I'm all alone No one's heard a single word I've said They don't sound as good outside my head Looks as though the past is here to stay I've become a million miles a- Why do you get all the love in the world? All the jagged edges disappear Colors all look brighter when you're near The stars are all afire in the sky Sometimes I get so lonely I could Why do you get all the love in the world?
Additional lyrics printed in the With Teeth PDF booklet, but not appearing in the song itself
Why am I always watching from the outside? On the other side of the glass Behind the glass. Always watching everyone, Separate, watching, always Don't touch. This is getting deeper As time goes by, The water's getting colder. Here I am surrounded by people but still all alone, I am always alone. Even with myself, Imprisoned in my head. And there doesn't seem to be any way out, And I am so fucking sick of here, Wish I was there. Right beside is still A million miles away. Behind these bars. In a rut. Anyplace else will do. Hello? Don't think so. Broadcasting, Only static coming in. No one can hear me when I'm here.
