Roller Coaster Smoke
A catchy and singable guitar lead is a trademark of this fun song in tribute to the television series “Lost”. Very danceable chorus proclaims “We’ll live together, or we will die alone”. Great song to listen to while driving with the windows down in the summertime. Heartfelt and emotional bridge. Also available as an instrumental version.

|Lyrics:||Wake up in the woods and wonder where you are. |
Here the people screaming, somewhere from afar.
Run out on the beach, this has got to be a dream,
save all those you can and start a new society.
I wonder what's out there, the roller coaster smoke
I must admit I'm scared to see where this will go.
The others are coming to take us away,
I don't know what they want because they never say.
We'll live together or we will die alone.
Don't ever tell me what I can and can't do,
you don't control me, you're not my manager.
Do you believe in destiny? Do you believe in divine intervention?
Traveling through time, the constant is a key.
I wonder if we'll find out where we were supposed to be?

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".
