Lyrics of Falling Down
The summer sun
It blows my mind
It's falling down on all that I've ever known
Time to kiss the world goodbye
Falling down on all that I've ever known
Is all that I've ever known
A dying scream
It makes no sound
Calling out to all that I've ever known
Here am I, lost and found
Calling out to all
We live a dying dream
If you know what I mean
All that I've ever known
It's all that I've ever known
Catch the wind that breaks the butterfly
I cried the rain that fills the ocean wide
I tried to talk with God to no avail
Calling my name from out of nowhere
I said "If you won't save me, please don't waste my time"
'Falling Down' posted a subtle improvement from its predecessor, 'I'm Outta Time' on the UK Singles Chart, reaching #10 in its chart entry week. This was something of a return to form for the band, after 'I'm Outta Time' charting at #12 made it the first Oasis single released in the UK to fail to reach the top 10 since 'Shakermaker' in 1994. Between the two releases the band had put out 22 singles which made the top 10. However, it still showed a decline in the band's fortunes; from the release of 'Whatever' at the end of 1994 until the release of 'I'm Outta Time' the band had only had one single which failed to reach the top 4 in the charts, and that had been 2007's 'Lord Don't Slow Me Down' which was only a minor promotional release and a non-album track and also download only.
The heavily compressed drum-rhythm and sense of disillusioned psychedelia bear a strong resemblance the Beatles song 'Tomorrow Never Knows', being cited as Noel's finest effort so far to emulate the atmosphere of that song.
An excerpt of the B-side song 'Those Swollen Hand Blues' appears at the end of 'Mucky Fingers', second track of Oasis' 2005 album 'Don't Believe the Truth'.
The lyric: 'Catch the wheel that breaks the butterfly' references the quotation: 'Who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?' from Alexander Pope's 'Epistle to Dr Arbuthnot'.
The song was released as downloadable content for the video game 'Guitar Hero: World Tour' on 29 January 2009.
The song was used in the opening sequence for the Production I.G anime 'Eden of the East', which first aired on Fuji TV's noitaminA timeslot on April 9, 2009.. There is no word yet if American and Canadian distributor FUNimation Entertainment will be able to include the song in their release.
