"Not Falling" is the first single from American band Mudvayne's second full-length studio album, The End of All Things to Come. "Not Falling" was Mudvayne's most commercially successful single chart-wise until "Happy?" in 2005.[citation needed]

Music and lyrics[edit]

The song talks about being self-strong and not giving up. The song begins and concludes with heavier segments with screamed vocals, while its middle section is more atmospheric and melodic.[2]

Music videos[edit]

The song has three music videos: two official and one unofficial. The first video depicts the band being transformed into veiny creatures with white, egg-colored bug eyes[2] and performing the song in a dark chamber. Additionally featured are images of parasites traveling through someone's bloodstream. The second video, directed by Dean Karr, features the members performing the song in a blizzard, notably without the costumes. The unofficial third music video appears on the DVD for the 2002 horror film Ghost Ship, in which the song was featured heavily. The video consists of a montage of clips from the film with the song played over.
