Billy Talent - Rusted From The Rain

I stumble through the wreckage,
Rusted from the rain.
There's nothing left to salvage,
No one left to blame.
Among the broken mirrors,
I don't look the same.
I'm rusted from the rain.
I'm rusted from the rain.

Dissect me 'til me blood runs
Down into the drain.
My bitter heart is pumping
Oil into my veins.
I'm nothing but a tin man,
Don't feel any pain.
I don't feel any pain.
I don't feel any pain.
I'm rusted from the rain.

Go on, crush me like a flower
Rusted from the rain.
C'mon strip me of my power
Beat me with the chains.
And if I'm the King of cowards,
You're the Queen of pain.
I'm rusted from the rain.
I'm rusted from the rain.

You hung me like a picture,
Now I'm just a frame.
I used to be a lap dog,
Now I'm just a stray.
Shackled in the graveyard,
Left here to decay.
Left here to decay.
Left here to decay.
I'm rusted from the rain.

Go on, crush me like a flower
Rusted from the rain.
C'mon, strip me of my power
Beat me with the chains.
And if I'm the King of cowards,
You're the Queen of pain.
I'm rusted from the rain.
I'm rusted from the rain.

Go on, crush me like a flower
Rusted from the rain.
C'mon strip me of my power
Beat me with the chains.
And if I'm the King of cowards,
You're the Queen of pain.
I'm rusted from the rain.
I'm rusted from the rain.

Go on, crush me like a flower
Rusted from the rain.
C'mon strip me of my power
Beat me with the chains.
And if I'm the King of cowards,
You're the Queen of pain.
I'm rusted from the rain.
I'm rusted from the rain.

Oh, the sun will shine again.
I'm rusted from the rain.
I'm rusted from the rain.
Oh, the sun will shine again.
I'm rusted from the rain.

"Rusted from the Rain" is the first official single by the great Canadian rock band Billy Talent off their album Billy Talent III. It was released on May 19, 2009. Lead singer Ben Kowalewicz has said that the song is very "tin man-esque" and evolved from an "epic Soundgarden-like riff". The lyrics are about marital breakdown, Kowalewicz told Kerrang!: "Nowadays, I'm seeing a lot of people who got married young are now getting divorced. It seems to be a new fad. Divorce is the new black." The song was nominated for Single of the Year at the 2010 Juno Awards, but lost to Michael Bublé's "Haven't Met You Yet". The band's cover of John Lennon's classic song "Cold Turkey", was released on a CD single, on June 30, 2009. The video was shot in April 2009 by director Wayne Isham in Los Angeles. The video pans between the band playing in a junkyard and a vagrant collecting junk and garbage in the streets. As the video progresses, it is revealed that the man collected the trash to construct a makeshift carousel for a small group of children in the neighborhood.
