D' you breath the name of your saviour in your hour of need,
N' taste the blame if the flavor should remind you of greed,
Of implication, insinuation and I'll will, till' you cannot lie still,
In all this turmoil, before red cape and foil come closing in for a kill

Come feed the rain
Cos I'm thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust
Yeah feed the rain
Cos without your love my life ain't nothing but this carnival of rust

It's all a game, avoiding failure, when true colors will bleed
All in the name of misbehavior and the things we don't need
I lust for after no disaster can touch us anymore
And more than ever, I hope to never fall, where enough is not the same it was before

Come feed the rain
Cos I'm thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust
Yeah feed the rain
Cos without your love my life ain't nothing but this carnival of rust

Don't walk away, don't walk away, oh, when the world is burning,
Don't walk away, don't walk away, oh, when the heart is yearning
Don't walk away, don't walk away, oh, when the world is burning,
Don't walk away, don't walk away, oh, when the heart is yearning.

    I guess it means: lifes a tricki game. People only crave for money but that's the girl who craves for freedom. And we can interpret "the carnival of rust'as her life. Her cravings, her lover, her bad side, her good side, etc. Etc. , everythings spoilt. She hesitates whether to start a new life or the same old rusty life. At last she lets go of her old life and resolves to begin a new one only with what she needs. But the former life still abducts her.

    It's about growing up/being sheltered/spoiled by parents/etc. She wears gas mask to protect her from bad things, everyone wants to keep their child away from harm after all. Everybody smiles at her in the video, as everyone smiles at little child. Girl achieves what she want (breakinng the discs with ball and getting the doll).
    Protected from harm, being adored and being "spoiled", as every child is.
    At the end she grows up and finds out she is alone. No people to smile at you, no one to help you. Life aint so easy you thought it was (dark alley in the video). You may not know what to do (girl hesitates).
    Rust usually means something like "getting bad", like steel is spoiled when it gets rusty or phrase- 'I'm a little bit rusty'. Being to coddled teaches you wrong that you always get everything you want so it may be shock when someone says no. That's for rust.
    Carnival is place where lots of thing happens. In video it's place where girl is spoiled, so Carnival of Rust.
    Makes lotta sense doesn't it? Xd.
