"All the Love in the World" is the first track on Nine Inch Nails' fifth album, With Teeth. The song begins with a nearly melotone Trent Reznor singing the verses and repeating, "Why do you get all the love in the world?" Synth drums are used in a slow-style IDM-esque drumbeat. About three minutes into the song an interpolation occurs. The song transitions into a set of piano chords, and slowly introduces actual drums, and eventually an electric bass.

LYRICS

   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.
