|Lyrics:||i look at you and see the life i want to live |
you look at me and say how could it come to this
but if the timing is right and the stars align
then consider this case closed
i see you walking for the door
but someday you'll call this home
no significant other
and now i'm really bored and all i want to do is drink
no significant other today
so why would you leave me all alone
you know i don't get along
when i'm left all by myself
you're gonna lose it
you're gonna lose it
i thought you'd be concerned
but i guess i was wrong
don't wanna be by myself
so why would you leave me up the crick?
i treat you way better than rick
i saw him talking to michelle
i don't want to be by myself, veronica.

Founding their themes upon an effervescent punk-pop formula, combining catchy rhythms and sharp melodies, and revealing influences coming from bands like Green Day and Weezer, Punchline bring forward distinctive tunes to the alternative rock scene. Established in Pittsburgh, PA, in July of 1997, Punchline began with the lineup of Paul Menotiades (guitar/vocals), Steve Soboslai (guitar/vocals), Chris Fafalios (bass/vocals), and P.J. Caruso (drums). From the beginning, the band built a loyal fan base, mostly due to its rousing live performances and unending show schedule.
Following years of nonstop shows across the U.S., the band recorded the eight-song Major Motion Picture, with production credits divided with Billy Rossi. Fueled by Ramen took notice of the guys, signed them, and February 2003 saw Punchline's first release on the label, The Rewind EP. Exactly one year later, Sean O'Keefe (Fall Out Boy, Plain White T's) recorded their debut FBR full-length, Action, which contained hook-filled melodies, sing-along choruses, and three-part vocal harmonies. January 2005 saw the departure of guitarist Menotiades and Greg Wood joining the band in his place. Later, Punchline toured with Bayside and released a split 7" with Over It. Their next album, 37 Everywhere, appeared in April 2006 -- titled such for the band's love for and ability to spot the number 37, well, everywhere -- and a subsequent headlining tour in support of the record ran through the spring. Wood amicably exited Punchline in late summer to pursue other interests, replaced on guitar by Jon Belan (ex-the Berlin Project).
After leaving Fueled By Ramen, the band returned to it's DIY roots, releasing "Just Say Yes" in 2009. Their singles "Ghostie" and "The Hit" garnered much attention on Youtube, affirming the bands decision to go the indie route. Guitarist Paul Menotiades returned to the band for the bands following LP "Delightfully Pleased".
