"Negative Lane" as written by Cathy Henderson and Kristen Henderson....
I haven't been myself all year
Too many changes around here
And the road to happiness has been a crash course

It's been a long year since you left
And a whole week since I last slept
Dusting myself off to ride the wild horse

Don't know where I'm going
Or just what it means
But the scars remind me of exactly where I've been

If you try to find me
My number's not the same
Hang my hat up on negative lane

People keep asking how I've been
Because of the state of mind I'm in
There's a million places I swore I would be by now

Radio songs all sound the same
I almost played in to that whole game
But the boy's club hung a sign that said "no girls allowed"

Don't know where I'm going
Or just what it means
But the scars remind me of exactly where I've been

If you try to find me
My number's not the same
Hang my hat up on negative lane
You take the road of self destruction
To the cul-de-sac of shame
Hang my hat up on negative lane

I keep on coming around
I got one foot back on the ground
And when the other joins me I'll be splitting town

    General CommentThis song is obviously about bowling. I think Kristen used to frequent the local bowling circuits of Strong Island back in the day. She must have bowled a 62 the night she wrote it, hence the self-loathing undertones. "And the road to happiness has been a crash course" is an analogy to the bowling where the pins "crash" at the end. If you spend enough time at a bowling alley, you'll realize their "radio songs all sound the same".
