Rusted faces, familiar places

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (Ft. Allen Stone & Macklemore) – Neon Cathedral Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Macklemore’s watching their faces which have become familiar places (the church is now a bar).

Could be a reference to Gary Jules “Mad World” (originally by Tears For Fears) lyics which is also some pretty depressing shit

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
