"Shreds of Boa" as written by and Christopher Weldon Ballew....
I invited salmonella poison
They brought their blushin' daughter, stuffed into a tux
I invited all the guitar heroes
We threw away the guest list, and lost a thousand bucks

I called all the local geniuses
They wrote the guide for the perplexed and the drunk
Wild eyed they came from all directions
Stompin' on the dance floor and droppin' all their junk

All I've got to show are shreds of boa
All I've got to keep is paper-thin
All I've got to show are shreds of boa
Smashed into the rug and vacuumed out again!

We're out again!
We're out again!
We're out again!

Hoo!
Check out the stone on Tammy Tuesday
She's handin' out a fortune in party favor pearls
Here come all those thunderin' beasties
Disabling security, and touchin' all the girls

Check out all the star-struck ramblers
Littering the dance floor with scorpions and Sting
Here come all the ruby-studded hap'ners
Everybody came and destroyed everything

All I've got to show are shreds of boa
All I've got to keep is paper-thin
All I've got to show are shreds of boa
Smashed into the rug and vacuumed out again

You left your shreds of boa
We sucked it off your chin
You left your shreds of boa
Smashed into the rug and vacuumed out again!

We're out again!
We're out again!
We're out again!

We're out again!

    General CommentI think it's about satisfaction, or the lack there of. He did this great thing and everyone showed up for it, but he has nothing to show for it; it's all "paper thin". Not to mention that it's been trampled on and "smashed into the rug". Thats just the general idea, I have no clue on specifics. I was never quite sure what PUSA was trying to say in their lyrics

    General Commenti think this song is just an homage to a great party, and how afterward.. nothing remains.

    General CommentThis song centers around the same girl the song "Vestina" is about. Chris threw a huge party and invited alot of local musicians to it. His friend was wore a big, red, feather boa to the party. And for days afterward Chris was finding red feathers all over his house.
