Song Description

This song explores how everything in capitalistic countries becomes an addictive form of business. The idea is that many lifestyles and ways of making livings can become very addictive. The music and entertainment industries, for instance, are all managed very similar to the oil industry - to maximize profit.

Story Behind the Song

This song is the title track off of Philadelphia Slick's second album. It echoes some of the themes Upon Sinclair explores in his novel of the same name.

Lyrics

Chorus:

The spotlight is oil
advertising oil
high density feed lines with no soil
Stock market oil
prisoner oil
middle management synergy team toil
Elementary to university oil
Texas-United Arab Emirate royal
land grab right after the sand bag oil
And it ain't gon' stop when the last drop boil
