The music video for "Face Down" parallels the song in its treatment of violence in a relationship. After arriving home, a young woman examines a bruise on her lower back, and begins to look for and examine items that she associates with her boyfriend (i.e. pictures, a card, letters). As she does so, objects around her start to suddenly move as if thrown or destroyed by the unseen hand of an abuser. The level of damage done escalates throughout the video, though the young woman does not react or acknowledge the growing violence around her. After a chair flies through the living room window, she takes the pictures and letters and throws them into a garbage can outside her house. This unfolding scene is juxtaposed with shots of the band performing the song in a living room with lighting and decor which appear to be the young woman's.
An acoustic version of "Face Down" was released after the album version. The lyrics are unchanged, however a previously unheard guitar part supplements the song. This version is available on iTunes and the "deluxe edition" of Don't You Fake It. The version on the single is the same as on Don't You Fake It. There is also a heavier version of the song that appears on their debut album. The lyrics are unchanged but the chorus is in a different spot. The most notable difference is how the lyrics are screamed, and it sounds very distinctive in comparison to the later radio version with the screaming removed. On iTunes, there is a fourth version under the album of AOL Sessions Undercover-EP. This is technically a live acoustic version of the song.
