Tomahawk – Mayday lyrics

Kiss kiss, bang bang
Gotta tug on the hanging man
Suck you clean
Turn the penile into pentane
Flee your cell
Because I could chop it down
You can't disappear
Because you're already gone

No trumpet sounds when I am coming
No drum beats as a mourning ear
I'm standing on the roof of the world

You won't be saved
From the builder in the morning sun
You won't be spared
From cheating at your solitaire
Keep all that soul
Put the freedom in past form
The joke's on you
But now you're laughing at me

I'm putting in my two weeks' notice
As of two fuckin' weeks ago
I'm not in the running anymore

    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.
