about

Continuous distillation is a staggered release with no limitation on quantity or what kind of song appears. I'm hoping I can upload a new song on a monthly basis, we'll see..... guest musicians may also be enlisted from time to time. Previously unreleased songs from other bands and projects may pop up. Tracks will appear when motivation/time allows.

This will likely be my only solo musical outlet from now on.....

Started walking at 10 months, wrote my first song when I was 10 years old. Picked up my first guitar not long after. Played in some bands during the late 80's and throughout the 90's, (Christbait, Dern Rutlidge). Championed by no one, I still make music today (The Ruiner and solo). When not writing and recording music I work as a brewer and own/run Cedar Fox Distilling Co. ... more

Track Name: lonesome song
lyrics:

I just wanna hear some lonesome tunes, inspired by the bleakness.
Walking in hand with personal crimes, I can't stop from crying.
Promise seems a distant star away, I keep breaking all the time.
Surface tension evaporates, I realise the worst has come.

Searching for a feeling that I hope had never happened before.
Searching for a feeling that I hope had never happened before.
Searching for a feeling that I hope had never happened before.
Searching for a feeling that I hope had never happened before.

I just wanna play a lonesome song, inspired by the darkness.
Walking blind into the open light, complete my initiation.

Searching for a feeling that I hope had never happened before.
Searching for a feeling that I hope had never happened before.
Searching for a feeling that I hope had never happened before.
Searching for a feeling that I hope had never happened before.
Track Name: the mountain
lyrics:
Walk to the mountain, start by the sea.
Heavens above you, to guide where you’ll be.
No signs direct you, aimless and free.
Just heavens above you, to guide where you’ll be.

And though you fall down, pick yourself up off the ground.
And though you have found, the time it took to get you the top is not same to descend.

- We travel down familiar roads again, and again.
Each time, try and make new friends.
Track Name: living as a ghost
lyrics:
Seeking out a living that never leaves the shade,
I've been parking down a back street that never sees the day,
of me holding down commitment, I can never seem to trade
for a pocket full of promise, that just seems to fade away.
And I know I can't hold this thing down.

Eternity has seen life living as a ghost.
Contemplate the meaning on the signs of faded hope,
as I scan along the edge of a long eroding coast that will haunt me.

Picking up the pieces becomes regular fare.
I step out to the world and I pretend to even care,
of concerns don't really matter, I don't even stop or stare,
of the blood that I've been letting, just covers everywhere.
And I know I can't hold this thing down.

Eternity has seen life living as a ghost.
Contemplate the meaning on the signs of fading hope,
as I scan along the edge of a long eroding coast that still haunts me.

Eternity has seen life living as a ghost.
Contemplate the meaning on the signs of faded hope,
and I scan along the edge of a long eroding coast that condemns me.
Track Name: comfort tonight
Lyrics:

I need comfort tonight, warm beds feel right.
Lord knows I knew the score, sleep rough no more.
I see stars above, shelter and love.

Destined to fail, open for business that's a closing down sale.
Have you the time, to mellow my mind.

Cause I need comfort tonight, warm beds feel right.
I see stars above, shelter and love.

I'm destined to fail, open for business that's a closing down sale.
Have you the time, to clear out my mind.

Cause I need your comfort tonight, warm beds feel right.
feel right,
feel right.
Track Name: the wrong time
Lyrics:

I can see it all around, scattered primates on the ground.
You will never know the time, when your death comes from behind.
And we see it on the town, I can bring it under ground.
Forest burns of every tree and my name is all you'll see.

Its the wrong time for you to stick with me.
Its the wrong time for you to stick with me.

Colour all that can be found.
Murder those who turn us down.
Pictures perfect untold truth, from a certain point of view.
But we need to hold you down.
To inject the latest sound.
Profits go and profits come, other prophets made with a gun.

Its the wrong time for you to stick with me.
Its the wrong time for you to stick with me.
Its the wrong time for you to stick with me.

"some interlude bullshit"

Its the wrong time for you to stick with me.
Its the wrong time for you to stick with me.
Its the wrong time for you to stick with me.
Track Name: bad blood
lyrics:

I see a blinding light, a message from a star.
That is burning tomes of fate, I never heed the call.
Of a blackened heart of doom. Bring bad blood home soon.

Bloody murder on the floor, for payments made discreet.
I can choose which metaphor, solitude will meet.
Blackened heart of doom. Bring bad blood home soon.

The retrieval of the scorn, for taking of the truth.
Between the undead and reborn. who never seem to choose.
For a blackened heart of doom. Bring bad blood home soon.

I see a blinding light, a message from a star.
That is burning tomes of fate, I never heed the call.
Of a blackened heart of doom. Bring bad blood home soon.

I can see through light, voices in my head, I walk tonight, valleys of the dead.
I can see through light, voices in my head, I walk tonight, valley of the dead.
I can see through light, voices in my head, I walk tonight, through valleys of the dead.

Track Name: this i know
lyrics:

Of the time we have, we save to long for us to see.
Am I talking out of line, to mention gravity?
That pulls our heart in ways relevant to you and me.
Just getting over crimes that forgiveness never sees.
There comes a time we burn the lie we cultivate.
And running out of time is an ever present state.

But this I know.
and this I know.
this I know.
Track Name: never stop running
Lyrics:

Well you know what I like when I see you tonight.
Know that I care, say I'll be there.
Just a roll of the dice make everything right.
Never stop running, never stop running from you.

And honey you know that I care.
Only you know that I care.
A honey you know that I care.
Track Name: the storm song
Lyrics:

Walking down this street as a pornograph
Hope for my dreams to some day come to pass.
And do you know the way to go home now? cause I sure can’t find it.
And when I feel alone I know now I can never hide it.

Walking down this scene with your photograph.
Hope for your dreams to some day come to pass.
And when I feel alone I know now I can never hide it.
And do you know the way to go home now? cause I sure can’t find it.

solo

I say woah a woah a woah, woah.
I say woah a woah a woah, woah.

solo

I say woah a woah a woah, woah.
I say woah a woah a woah, woah.

And do you know the way to go home now? cause I sure can’t find it.
And when I feel alone I know now I can never hide it.
I can never hide it.

Track Name: dirty people
Lyrics:

Dirty people and their dirty friends.
They won't let me see you, I can't wait till then.
But these uh, dirty people and their dirty friends.
They won't..
give me a break now they won't
give me a break now they won't
give me a break now they won't
give me a break now they won't

Don't be undecided. I'm the only one for you.
Don't be undecided. I'm the only one for you.

Dirty people and their dirty friends.
They won't let me see you, I can't wait till then.
But these uh, dirty people and their dirty friends.
They won't..
give me a break now they won't
give me a break now they won't
give me a break now they won't
give me a break now they won't

Don't be undecided. I'm the only one for you.....ooh hoo, ah ha
Don't be undecided. I'm the only one for you.....ooh hoo, ah ha
And we all decided. I'm the only one for you.
