"Royal Oil" as written by and Dicky/albert Barrett....
Royal Oil, come on bubble and boil
Stabs like a dagger, make you stagger
On the hot tin foil
Mind your mind or it will surely spoil then you sleep down in the soil
Nothing comes from nothing, come on
Royal Oil
When you smoke or poke the poison
You lose the chance to be tomorrow
Look out on the horizon
And see the sadness, the pain and the sorrow
I can't say enough about the stuff
Or what it has in store
When you smoke or poke the poison
You won't be anymore
Royal Oil, come on bubble and boil
Stabs like a dagger, make you stagger
On the hot in foil
Mind your mind or it will surely spoil
Then you sleep down in the soil
Nothing comes from nothing, come on
Royal Oil
Royal Oil has cut many down to size
Spikes gonna strike the weak and strong alike
And then forever, and ever close those eyes
Make up your mind to keep your mind up
And to your life be loyal
Nothing comes from nothing, come on
Royal Oil
Royal Oil, big trouble brewing
Long, lonely road, long road to ruin
Wrong path to take, great big mistake
And then you sleep down in the soil
Nothing comes from nothing, come on
Royal Oil

    General CommentCould be, but it may be something a bit differant... When it gets introduced on 'live at the middle east' he says 'This one goes out to the people who have supported the bosstones for all these fucking years' But microwaveburrito, i still reckon you are right.

    General Commenti think it's about drugs in general - "smoke or poke the poison" - marijuana and heroin... correct if wrong

    General Commenti agree: this song isnt about oil, it's about drugs. stabs like dagger makes you stagger, smoke or poke, hot tin foil, mind your mind or it will spoil, sadness pain and sorrow, long road to ruin all sound like they are talking about some sort of drug or another.

    General CommentThis song is about Crystal Meth (speed, crank, go, shit, dope, etc). First of all the glass pipe that is used to smoke meth is called an oil burner which is why they call it royal OIL. Second "Stabs like a dagger, make you stagger,On the hot tin foil". freebasing meth on foil. And of course you can "slam" some speed which if you dont know is injecting it with a needle. And well sleep down in the soil means you sleep where you fall, and when you haven't sleep in a week or two your most likely just going to pass out where you stand. And when your tweaking nothings going to be accomplished by your countless hours of effort therefore nothings gonna come from nothing.

    General CommentWell I don't think it means literally sleeping as he says "sleeping in the soil" A.K.A. dying and being buried.
