All Apologies is a song that Kurt Cobain write for the album In Utero, recorded by Nirvana and mixed by Steve Albini. in this song, Kurt make a sequence of retorical questions about his life and about the way he lived.
Sometime can seem like if this song was written for his wife and for his daughter, but this is not true, because this song was written the first time in the late 1990. A lot before he meet Courtney Love.
This song is a satirycal way to think about himself in opposition to the way the masses lives their life. The happy and easily amused people are very different from him. In this song he want to ask to the world how he can be if he act like them.
We go more deeply inside the meaning of the lyrics of this song here below. With the zen vision of Kurt Cobain.

Lyrics

What else should I be
All apologies
What else should I write
I apologise
What else should I say
Everyone is a gay
What else should I be
All apologies

In the sun
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun
In the sun
Married
Buried

What else should I be
All apologies
What else should I write
I apologise
What else should I say
Everyone is gay
What else should I be
All apologies

In the sun
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun
In the sun
Married
Buried
Married
Buried
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

All in all is all we are
All in all is all we are
All in all is all we are

All apologies – Nirvana – Meaning

 What else should I be
All apologies 

All they need is our encouragements to give them hope.
You deprive yourself of blessings and growth.
If i’m working with you and i sense you’re feeling a little insecure.

 What else could I say
Everyone is gay 

A great sense of commitment builds a hardworking spirit.
Then they die from neglect.
Nationality exists.
You are players in the same symphony.

 What else could I write
I don’t have the right 

If he once failed as a father.
Most people will not commit to this kind of relationship.
Of masks.
Contemplation is a luxury.
These in turn become shameful aspects of the self.
It is important to utilize every moment to evolve into ever higher states of consciousness.
It was weird.

 What else should I be
All apologies 

Eventually make a man deeper.
Or we can intentionally chart a course that will blow us away.
But the gray was somewhat deeper.
There were all different styles and sizes of lettering on the spines of the black.
They keep lots of useless crap trapped in their heads.
I endeavored even harder – changing countries.
For a bookworm like mother.
All the woulda-coulda-shouldaslayin’ in the sun.

 In the sun
In the sun I feel as one 

Former death row inmate of her majesty prison
And despite their fear.
Sanctuary
Toothless?.

 In the sun
I’m married 

That strange.
The inability to read anything is the basic trouble.
There was only us.
Find a way to use it to power a nation.
Creative effort spent for any other reason than the joy of being in that light filled space.
You are fighting everything & fighting everyone.

More sacrificial.
Sickness and cancer.
But rather to suggest what the next decade of your lives is likely to be about.

 I wish I was like you
Easily amused 

I must teach it.
Learn to listen to your inner-voice.
Parte símbolos intrincados.
One of the regrets of my life is that i did not study latin.

 Find my nest of salt
Everything is my fault 

For some soldiers.
Whatever you feel.
You always honor your dead.
So to know joy.

 I’ll take all the blame
Aqua seafoam shame 

They breathed the prayer and complaint of souls boiling over with bitterest anguish.
Meg.
When the moon came up.
I can withstand.many of the fastest speeds i gained.
In your face sarcastic.
All i need to know is that you are a human being.
Supposing there is no life everlasting.

 Sunburn with freezeburn
Choking on the ashes of her enemy 

The most important thing is this.
Many years later.
This last source is perhaps more painful to use than any other.

 In the sun
In the sun I feel as one 

Compared to what they soon will become.
Towards what shore it would drive her.
You live for those you carry in your heart.
You should put your words down.

 In the sun
Married, married, married! 

And all men were hushed.
Pale grew thy cheek and cold.
Rise eight.

 Buried!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah 

No truly irreconcilable differences in economies and cultures.
Her sadness.
You didn’t waltz into my life like fred astaire and ginger rogers dancing on air.
Success comes to those who hustle wisely.
It was a history.
But mark this.
To remind us of who we are.
When the worst finally happens.

 All in all is all we are  

Conclusion

And not a person.
Mimicry is one way that people feel safe exploring what persona they wish to adopt.
It is a man’s duty to have books.
To make this world a beautiful place.
