Combining alt-rock impact with infectious hooks and ambitious musicianship, FOCUSPULLER has carved out a unique and identifiable sound of its own.

Biography

FOCUSPULLER began as a recording project initiated by singer/songwriter Marc Betsworth and drummer/producer Chris Zigrovic. The two began by collaborating with a variety of other session musicians which became the genesis of an exciting new body of work that would eventually become the impetus behind the formation of a new project.

Given his background in film, Betsworth christened the project FOCUSPULLER; a name borrowed from a camera position on a film crew. The name also serves as a philosophical statement of sorts citing the band’s determination to focus on songwriting, artistic growth and musicianship over the all-too-pervasive image, attitude and trend-oriented focus present in today’s “music” industry.

Combining alt-rock impact with infectious hooks and ambitious musicianship, FOCUSPULLER has carved out a unique and identifiable musical signature. with an ever- growing fanbase.

In September 2005, FOCUSPULLER was nominated for “Best Alternative Act” in the 2005 Toronto Independent Music Awards. The band recently released its much anticipated EP entitled The Place We Discovered later that Fall.

Lyrics

All a Mistake

Written By: Marc Edwards

Stained and tarred
The things you want to discard here when the moment’s right
Did I aim too far?
It’s hard to know where you are now that you’re out of sight

In the name of all you used to know
In the name of all you’re letting go
In the name of all the things you left behind
In the name of all you said to me
We’re the same – I’m not your enemy
I just came to start again so hear me out

I will not help you to decide
This was all a mistake
All a mistake
In your mind
I will not help you say good-bye
When it’s all a mistake
All a mistake
To let this die

It’s dangerous to think that
You and I could never sink that low again
And it’s strange to trust as we both
Stand in the dust of what we might have been

In the name of all you used to know
In the name of all you’re letting go
In the name of all the things you left behind
In the name of all you said to me
We’re the same – I’m not your enemy
I just came to start again so hear me out

I will not help you to decide
This was all a mistake
All a mistake
In your mind

I will not help you say good-bye
When it’s all a mistake
All a mistake
To let this die

We could end this or bring it to life
Or we could mend this
Are we strong enough?

Twisted

Written By: Marc Edwards

On this star where I meet you
I could call this home
I could teach you all you want to know
And take it slow
Safe from harm
You need protection
Afraid to let this grow
And I know you
Feel like letting go

So if my tongue gets twisted
And my words get rushed
I’m just running out of things to make you stay
Time’s up

And sometimes I get wasted
When everything’s messed up
I stumble but you know I keep the faith

A change of heart, we untangle
The conversation breaks
It’s getting hard to believe in what it takes anymore
Blown apart and now we dangle
Over our mistakes
And the nightmare begins when I awake

So if my tongue gets twisted
And my words get rushed
I’m just running out of things to make you stay
Time’s up

And sometimes I get wasted
When everything’s messed up
I stumble but you know I keep the faith

All my words start to fall away
In all my doubt
All my thoughts start to congregate
All in a day you
Broke my heart on the way out
Is there nothing to save us
From falling away now?

So if my tongue gets twisted
And my words get rushed
Now there’s nothing left to say

All the thoughts I gave up
To follow what you made up
Never thought I’d wake up here

If my tongue gets twisted
Time’s up

The Place We Discovered

Written By: Marc Edwards

I forgot to keep my wounds
Keep my wounds away from you
I just thought today
You’d open your heart and find
That I don’t want to keep my world
Keep my world away from you
There’s nothing in the way
To make me want to stay
And follow you all the way home

You ran, you ran
I stumbled through what I said
You ran you ran
I stumbled to my bed

Far away from the place we discovered
It’s strange to have around
Words we never found
Torn away by the hand of another
Where’s the moment gone?
Where’s the love we found?

I need you to think this through
And find what you are after
The ground is giving way
We’re wasting everyday
If you’re already gone, let me know

We can’t withstand
The fallout from this silence
I can’t shake hands
And watch you drift away

Far away from the place we discovered
It’s strange to have around
Words we never found
Torn away by the hand of another
Where’s the moment gone?
Where’s the love we found?

I wait but time doesn’t heal
Moments feeling slow
No, time cannot heal what I cannot let go
