Reference to the Freudian Ego that seeks to attain the goals of the Id in a long-term, realistic fashion. Drinking to weaken the Ego would allow for the Id to take over and pursue simple, short-term pleasures while disregarding self=destructive behavior.

"Spitting up love like it's ipecac" (Grieves – Tragic) | rejected

Thats what I meant. Hence “in the context of the song.” I probably should have been more specific.

“Where your partner, no please” is “way up high in the nosebleeds”

"Can't blame you, babe" (New Boyz – Better With The Lights Off) | pending

It’s not “surely locked away.” It’s “securely locked away.”
