"Basket Of Eggs" as written by and Neil Fallon Jean-paul Gaster....
As through a glass darkly you seek yourself,
But the light grows weak while under Yggsdrasil.
A basket of eggs may you count your days.
Though your gut lies filled, only shells remain.

I can tell you've been drinking by the scent of your breath.
Another little sip, a bit deeper in debt.
You can rest your head in your wrinkled hands.
But when you awake, you're in another land.

In fields of green rolling on endlessly
You find a fallen nest where there is no tree.
Mark the brown furred hound tied to the mandrake root.
Dare you carve a face in that virtue food?

I can tell what you're thinking. I see it everyday.
I'll help you with your coat, see you on your way.
Sure you want to go walking on a night like this?
Look, there goes another one now. One day I swear they will not miss.

As through a glass darkly you seek yourself,
But the light grows weak while under Yggsdrasil.
A basket of eggs may you count your days.
Though your gut lies filled, only shells remain.

    General CommentI like the part

    "I can tell you've been drinking by the scent of your breath.
    Another little sip, a bit deeper in debt.
    You can rest your head in your wrinkled hands.
    But when you awake, you're in another land."

    You think you're gaining when you drink because it's taking you out of your misery. But the truth is alcohol is a temporary solution to the complicated problems you're afraid to face in your life. You're just stuffing your feelings down further the more you drink; your emotional debt is growing.
    I also love the part about waking up in another land. When you drink you feel wonderful until you pass out because you've managed to escape yourself for that moment. Then the next morning you're in another land, reality land.
