"Mayday (M'Aidez)" as written by Andrew Guerrero, Stephen Brackett, Jamie Laurie, Mackenzie Roberts, Jesse Walker and Kenneth Ortiz....
There's another way
There must be another way
This is not a game
We will play it anyway

Stare into my screen
It gives me what I need
I'm chomping at the bit
to get my drill feed

I love your stranglehold
I need your stranglehold
Just squeeze until I go cold

Help me! Help me!
You know me better than I knew myself
Mayday! Mayday!
Send angels, I'm a danger to myself
You know me better than I knew myself

Getting nothing done
I'm getting nothing done
Failing all my friends
And I'm failing everyone

I love your stranglehold
I need your stranglehold
Just squeeze until I go cold

Help me! Help me!
You know me better than I knew myself
Mayday! Mayday!
Send angels, I'm a danger to myself

Help me! Help me!
You know me better than I knew myself
Mayday! Mayday!
Send angels, I'm a danger to myself

How long
How long was I sleeping?
How long
How long was I sleeping?
How long
How long was I sleeping?
How long
How long was I sleeping?

Help me! Help me!
You know me better than I knew myself
Mayday! Mayday!
Send angels, I'm a danger to myself

Help me! Help me!
You know me better than I knew myself
Send angels, I'm a danger to myself

How long was I sleeping?

    General CommentI think this might be a call for help to God / a higher power.

    "Help me, you know me better than I know myself"
    God does
    "Mayday mayday, Send angels, I'm a danger to myself"
    He realizes that he is doing something that he knows is wrong but can't help himself (some addiction?) so he asks God to send angels or any form of help he can to help him, because he is a danger to himself.

    "I'm failing all my friends and Im' faling everyone"
    This could mean he's dissapointing everyone he knows because his problem is affecting his social life.

    "How long was I sleeping?"
    I think this could metaphorically mean that he just realizes he has this problem, and this whole time he has had the problem but not known about it was him "sleeping".

    Idk, it may not be what he intended the song to be about but It fits in my opinion.

    General CommentIt's not "send angels, I'm a danger to myself".

    It's "Save me, 'cos I'm a danger to myself."
