Track Name: The Oil Barons - HOT CAKE
Met a girl with the finest box
Hot Cake is on fire
In my bedroom like Goldilocks
Hot Cake is on fire

Like Audrey up on the wall
Bitch make me perspire
Got hot sugar withdrawl
Hot Cake is on fire
Track Name: The Oil Barons - KING VULTURE
The birds are in the tree
The big one in the backyard
A black committee
You better let in the dog
The tree is dead, son
Sorry daddy didn't water

But it's only King Vulture
Dropping from out the sky
King Vulture
Come to watch you die

Oh yeah, these are the facts
You let your lawn go brown
The fence is decrepit, falling down
Decaying on the ground
The volt had hit the air
You weren't there
The house in disrepair
You didn't care

King Vulture
Dropping from out the sky
King Vulture
Come to watch you die

Now the time is ripe
They're falling to the ground
When they wake, they'll eat what they came to find
The garbage of your soul
