Alan Walker Premiers “All Falls Down” Video Ft. Noah Cyrus (Lyrics Meaning)
Norwegian born Alan Walker has produced another hit to follow up to his 2015 mega hit “Faded.” The new song “All Falls Down” features Miley Cyrus’ sister Noah Cyrus and Digital Farm Animals as well. The new single appears in Alan’s new album ‘World of Walker’ and it’s a feel-good song backed by some intense EDM.
Noah Cyrus covers most of the vocals of the song while 19 year-old Swedish artist Juliander helps her along the way. The music video for “All Falls Down” is directed by Kristian Berg and shows signs of an anarchic world overrun by followers of ‘AW’ symbolism, which stands for Alan Walker.
The amazing sites for the music video has been chosen from Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia & Herzegovina.

The video starts off with a quote by George Herbert Mead;
“Society is unity in diversity”
These few simple words have a much deeper meaning, which the director of the visuals is trying to express in the music video.
The idea behind this concept is that there is strength in diversity. In old-school thinking diversity was seen as a hindrance for growth and development. But modern sociology, psychology, business and organizations find that diversity is actually a pillar of success. But it needs to be managed in a fruitful manner.
What’s the trick I wish I knew
I’m so done with thinking through
All the things I could’ve been
And I know you wonder too,
All it takes is that one look you do
and I run right back to you
u crossed the line
& it’s time to say f-u!
Behind the post-modern thinking of the “All Falls Down” video, the lyrics of the song includes a subtle love story too.
The song speaks about the complexity of a love-hate relationship and how neither one is in control of what happens. It is chaos. Even though Noah Cyrus says she is
so done” with him, “all it takes is that one look you do” and she is back in his arms as well. But when you cross some lines that aren’t meant to be crossed, there is no coming back.
What’s the point in saying that
when u know how I’ll react
U think u can just take it back
but shit just don’t work like that
you’re the drug that I’m addicted to
And I want you so bad
Guess I’m stuck
and that’s that
But Noah Cyrus relapses again. She knows how much strong she tries to be, there is something that keeps her glued to his poison. She keeps crawling back to him and she admits she is addicted. And she also knows that he holds all the keys to her heart. It really is a complicated situation.
The 17 year old Noah Cyrus shows so much potential in “All Falls Down” track supporting Alan Walker vocalize his ideas. We are hooked on this song and would love to hear your opinions on it. Leave a comment below and share this article with your friends.
