*Equip Sunglasses*
Hot Mulligan Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Head on a pike
Plain and vacant tonight
As you cry through your phone
Let the masses support
All the hate that you spit
Keep a mouth full of shit
See your smile out at town
And our shirt that you sport
Woes me

Eavesdrop in class
Keep your ear to the glass
Woes me

It's good to hate, isn't it
Popping veins, dissonance
Draw and quarter a stranger
To feel some blood on your fingers
You take away, robbery
Follow trends as a hobby
Find flaws in everything else
Because you don't like yourself
Woes me

Prisoner compliance
You'll tend to your bias
Be sure you're identical
To all your peers
Keep your head low
Suggestive
Horror show
Like clockwork
Predictable, simple
Then turn of a gear

It's good to hate, isn't it
Popping veins, dissonance
Draw and quarter a stranger
To feel some blood on your fingers
You take away, robbery
Follow trends as a hobby
Find flaws in everything else
Because you don't like yourself
Woes me

It's getting harder not to lose myself
When you clearly wanted someone else
Staying awake 'cause I never feel safe at home
Double check the locks and hide my phone
Try to drink away peripheral ghosts
Turn out the lights, it's my fault, I'm never alone

It's good to hate, isn't it
Popping veins, dissonance
Draw and quarter a stranger
To feel some blood on your fingers
You take away, robbery
Follow trends as a hobby
Find flaws in everything else
Because you don't like yourself
Woes me

Eavesdrop in class




Keep your ear to the glass
Woes me

Overall Meaning

The song "Equip Sunglasses" by Hot Mulligan tackles the theme of self-hatred and the consequences of always following trends and trying to fit in. The lyrics contain vivid images of violence, isolation, and paranoia. The opening lines, "Head on a pike, plain and vacant tonight, as you cry through your phone" suggest a feeling of complete vulnerability and lack of control. The image of the head on a pike evokes the idea of a defeated enemy, while crying through the phone is a sign of weakness and distress. The next lines, "Let the masses support all the hate that you spit, keep a mouth full of shit, see your smile out at town, and our shirt that you sport" shows the contrast between the public persona of the singer and their internal turmoil. The singer is aware that they are wearing a shirt that belongs to the person they hate but also realizes that no one else knows what's going on in their mind.


The chorus reflects the central idea of the song: "It's good to hate, isn't it? Popping veins, dissonance. Draw and quarter a stranger to feel some blood on your fingers. You take away, robbery. Follow trends as a hobby. Find flaws in everything else because you don't like yourself." The first line is ironic as hating oneself or others is never a positive thing. The "popping veins" and "dissonance" suggest a state of tension and chaos. The line "draw and quarter a stranger to feel some blood on your fingers" is evocative of medieval torture methods and implies a desire for violence and control. The next lines are more introspective, suggesting that the hatred towards others comes from a deeper root of self-loathing. The repetition of "Woes me" at the end of each verse highlights the helplessness and hopelessness of the singer.


Overall, "Equip Sunglasses" is a poignant commentary on the dangerous consequences of always pleasing others at the expense of one's own mental health and wellbeing. It's a warning against the trap of following trends and the urge to fit in instead of embracing one's uniqueness.
