    Mayday is similar to god hates a coward in the sense that it's spoken by a similar, threatening voice (which is supported by the crunching, threatening guitar riffs and drum beats). It is the voice of the illuminati… of the occult. Hence the chorus, informing you that his true presence/knowledge is generally hidden (i. E. "no trumpet sounds" to let you know he's coming). When he says "tug on the hanging man", he's referring to the folklore surrounding mandrake and terminal erections (also known as "angel lust"). When a man is hanged, he will typically get a post-mortem erection and ejaculate. It was/is believed that this process would stimulate the growth of mandrake on the ground beneath. Hence the line "turn the penile into pentane", which is a reference to this type of alchemy and also to the album title itself: mit gas.
