Lyrics:

Diamonds and fast cars
Money to burn
I got my head in the clouds
I got these thoughts to churn
Got my feet in the sand
I got a house on the hill
       I got a headache like a mother
       Twice the price of my thrills
       An it's a cold day, it's a continental drift
       I said this traffic is hell
       Can you give me a lift
       An I'll try to paint a story
       Got your pictures to tell
       Yeah you got to make a living
       With what you bring yourself to sell

I got some genuine
       Imitation
       Bad Apples
       Free sample
       For your peace o' mind
       Only $9.95
       I got my camera back from customs
       Got my law fees up to date
       Hell they musta seen me comin'
       Ain't this life so fuckin' great

     When the shit hit the fan
       It was all I could stand
       Yeah, well I'm a frequent flyer
       My body's breathing while it can
       But what I don't understand is that
       My world ain't gettin' no brighter
       If I could touch the sky
       Well I would float on by
       While everybody's talkin'
       Hell I'm just another guy
       If it were up to me
       I'd say just leave me be
       Why let one bad apple
       Spoil the whole damn bunch

     Gold and caviar
       Now why'nt you pour my apathy
       I'd have all my bases covered
       If I could teach my hands to see
       But now we're down in the deep end
       Where they'd love to watch you drown
       I said your laundry could use washing
       We'll hang it up all over town
       I said Hollywood's like a dryer
       An we're down on Sunset Strip
       An you'll be suckin' down the Clorox
       'Til your life's all nice and crisp

     When the shit hit the fan
       It was all I could stand
       Yeah, well I'm a frequent flyer
       My body's breathing while it can
       But what I don't understand is that
       My world ain't gettin' no brighter
       If I could touch the sky
       Well I would float on by
       While everybody's talkin'
       Hell I'm just another guy
       If it were up to me
       I'd say just leave me be
       Why let one bad apple
       Spoil the whole damn bunch

     When the shit hit the fan
       It was all I could stand
       Yeah, well I'm a frequent flyer
       My body's breathing while it can
       But what I don't understand is that
       My world ain't gettin' no brighter
       If I could touch the sky
       Well I would float on by
       While everybody's talkin'
       Hell I'm just another guy
       If it were up to me
       I'd say just leave me be
       Why let one bad apple
       Spoil the whole damn bunch
       Why let one bad apple
       Spoil the whole damn bunch
       Boy!!


Quotes:
It's just a clean guitar [for the beginning]. I think I used a Jazz Chorus for an amp. I use that a lot. I hardly ever use a Marshall for playing really brittle, clean parts. On this particular song, for the beginning, I might have used a Strat, or I have this little Music Man guitar that Keith Richards had. I used that because it sounds great for clean stuff. This song was written complete, too [No Illusions, Guitar - April, 1992]
