"Falling Away From Me" was the first single off Korn's fourth album Issues. The song is one of Korn's most well known songs. It reached #7 on the Alternative Songs chart and the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
In an interview with Songfacts Jonathan Davis explained;
"The song is about domestic abuse and that there are ways to get help whether it's telling someone or calling a help line, there are ways to get out of those situations. No one has to be treated like that."
Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit directed the music video, which is a continuation of the "Freak On A Leash" video opening with the closing scene of that video. The video focuses on child abuse, but the song is about domestic abuse as a whole.
[from Songfacts] According to Korn's management the electricity part of the video, "represents the power inside us to change our situation and take control." Korn saw it differently, "it was just a metal cool thing."
