The Patio 02:46
I’ll be waiting for you friends out on the patio Seems like it’s the only place they wanna let me go We’ll have drinks and try to laugh about all that’s happening But as time keeps passing I can only think about what could have been You don’t have to worry you don’t have to say a word You don’t have to tell me about what you heard You can sit quietly and stare out into space The patio can be your safe place Tell me all about the things that you did today It doesn’t matter to me if it’s the same as yesterday You know I’ve been feeling low and like I’m all alone It’s always nice to see a friendly face that’s not just on a phone You don’t have to worry you don’t have to say a word You don’t have to tell me about what you heard You can sit quietly and stare out into space The patio can be your safe place Do you wanna stay a little longer out on the patio tonight

Are you stuck in one place or moving way too fast Have you given up on making anything last Are you waving hello or are you waving you goodbye I think I can tell by that look in your eye That you’re running away again you don’t wanna face today You’re always stuck on yesterday Are you flying high or have you come down low Never sure just where you should go You’re making up the rules and then breaking them too Everything’s just a great big game to you Until you lose something real something you can’t fix Life’s called your bluff and now you’re all out of chips And you’re starting over again Just like you always do And you’re falling apart again Just like you always do Are you waving hello Are you waving goodbye Running away again you don’t wanna face today You’re always stuck on yesterday

Bad penny for your thoughts And your corrupted dreams The mind field is set to explode It’s time to wipe the slate clean And that feeling keeps creeping in Try not to let the fever win All the night eyes are watching you from the shadows From the dark secret heart I am the new conductor The memory seductor As the old film disintegrates The endless loop takes its place Are you asleep at the wheel A thousand pinpricks just to feel Careening off a dead-end cliff Into the bottomless pit of regret I am the darkest night The void devouring light Memories are fading away The empty shell of every lost day
4.
Your Machine 03:06
Dreary windows obscure the view Filtering out the light you need to see through There’s a crackling noise to try to dull your thoughts Keep you chained to your machine so you won’t stop On the TV tonight is all sorts of reality Truth served up the way they want you to see They’re inside your head they know all the buttons you’ll push They’ve got the algorithms juiced to make you feed on the rush Sometimes you feel like you want to run away Go somewhere quiet where you can keep them at bay But they’ve got you surrounded they’ve creeped under your skin And when you turn out the lights your glowing mind gives in Shut down your machine Wake up from the dream
5.
They say there’s a wobble in the moon Trying to disrupt the tides we knew Although nothing’s here to stay And we’ll all be gone someday Are you out there on your own Did you push everyone away until you were all alone Well if there’s a wobble in the moon I hope you can get back soon Something’s rumbling deep inside me Tectonic plates of destiny Moving me closer to the edge So I can see clearly all that I’ve been And I’m out here on my own I didn’t wanna tell you that I felt so alone Well if there’s a wobble in the moon I hope I can get back soon They say there’s a wobble in the moon Trying to take away all that we grew I guess this was never ours to keep We gotta give things up when we leave But I’ve got a memory of you That I’m gonna try to hold onto If there’s a wobble in the moon Then I won’t be coming back to you Then I won’t be coming back to you
6.
There were dark clouds And I was in no mood To step outside and face the gloom They said to Supreme Is where I should go So I followed their advice into the night I did go Into the neon light show We move through the night Looking for something looking for someone Who will make it alright I wanna blend in Into the sea of night souls Sit in dark corners and watch the scene But I need to get home To where I belong Before I get sucked in and they don’t want to let me go Before I can’t let go We move through the night Looking for something looking for someone Who will make it alright
7.
Endless 03:16
Astronaut up in the sky Send me a signal when you pass by Rocketship blasting off Leave you a package at your next stop And when you touch back down to Earth Do you ever think about what it was worth Do you ever dream of weightlessness Or of the endless dark abyss Astronaut up in the sky You’re always saying your last goodbye There’s a chance you won’t make it home So through the Milky Way your ghost will roam And if I don’t see you back here on Earth We’ll all wonder just what it was worth And that dream of weightlessness Drawn right into the endless dark abyss Astronaut I feel alone And so afraid of the unknown Every time I look up to the sky I’ll wonder if you’re floating by
8.
Somewhere tonight you’ll find you’re all alone Did you finally wake up to find those familiar faces were gone Would you mind if I tagged along Because I’m afraid of the dark or afraid of myself And all these thoughts I keep holding onto Somewhere tonight Somewhere tonight there’s someone just like you Feeling their way around never wanting to reveal Never thought they’d have to steal Heading to a place they never thought they’d have to go And all those thoughts which they must let go Somewhere tonight As we walk through the night And all the lights hit the rain A dark rainbow lifts the gloom from your face Somewhere tonight a friend has lost their way Down on their luck the streets demand that they pay Somewhere tonight
9.
Mushroom Gnome and Golden Boy Got sucked right through the electric eye Into the land of creeps they ran the gauntlet of lies There were swaying giants up to the sky And they could see the way they once lived And it was grand but now they were rotten to the core Still the giants are growing taller and taller And I keep feeling smaller and smaller Mushroom Gnome and Golden Boy Got trapped in a history book There were pages missing turned into a mystery A famous producer from Hollywood Wanted to buy the rights to their story wanted to make them into stars But they said no thanks they were only looking to be left alone Still the giants are growing taller and taller And I keep feeling smaller and smaller Mushroom Gnome and Golden Boy Beamed up to a satellite And they could see the whole world and hear everybody’s cries I wonder if they ever found a place Where they fit in and there was nothing to fix And there weren’t any giants trying to take up all the prime spots Still the giants are growing taller and taller And I keep feeling smaller and smaller
10.
There’s a note I wrote On the inside of an eyelid But I can’t see in the dark Why do you mess around And let it draw you in You seem to be heading into the dark I’m looking for a way out But someone’s pulling the strings Hiding behind the screen Like some kind of cruel joke But we can try to hide Somewhere only we can see And let these voices help lead the way I’ll try and wait for you there I’ll try and hold on But I keep slipping back into the dark The more you pull at the thread The more it unravels The tomorrow they promised Is all just an illusion We should give in tonight Be who we’ve always been Don’t resist the pull And walk into the dark

REVIEWS

It’s considered, thoughtful, and intelligent from the first song to the last.
neufutur.com/2023/07/will-rainier-the-pines-wobble-in-the-moon-lp/

The blending of indie singer/songwriter feel, and country music influences heard on Will Rainier’s Wobble in the Moon represents a newfound maturity in his recording output.
indieshark.com/music-reviews/will-rainier-wobble-in-the-moon-lp/

This extremely accomplished album takes the listener to many curious places with its unusual and sometimes poignant imagery. It also asks many questions about aspects of today’s society in such a laid-back but incisive way.
americana-uk.com/will-rainer-wobble-in-the-moon

Pedal steel and synth add a dreamscape quality to this pensive song...placing the listener in a context of sitting in dark corners and watching the scene, and it feels like there’s a dark underbelly even when the scene in its video is beautiful cherry blossoms and ocean beaches.
americanahighways.org/2023/05/08/song-premiere-will-rainier-to-supreme/

Life is just a collection of hellos and goodbyes. A stack of polaroids we revisit from time to time. We meander through existence, chasing one fleeting moment after another. There never seems to be enough time. “Are You Waving Goodbye,” finds the singer-songwriter bolting away from the everyday inconveniences for something else, something just peeking over the horizon.
bsidesbadlands.com/will-rainier-are-you-waving-goodbye-video-premiere/

Will Rainier’s “To Supreme” is an exquisite blend of introspective lyrics, captivating melodies, and atmospheric soundscapes.
boredcity.co/will-rainier-to-supreme/

Any song that opens with the words “There were dark clouds” is unlikely to be super cheery. But however moody a scene “To Supreme” sets, the song retains an underlying spirit of curiosity and resolve, treading the fine line between mysterious and ominous in an agreeable way. Much is established simply via Will Rainier’s plainspoken voice; he sounds like a guy pondering his circumstances with a friend more than a guy undone by dark forces.

…Wonderfully personal track that displays plenty of heart and an Americana songwriting approach that comes through with a youthful undertone but a maturity in songwriting which is a beautiful mix all in all.

There’s an indefinable yet dependable magic surrounding the album’s ten songs that invite repeated listens…

The haunting beauty, grace, thought provoking insight and overall sonic brilliance of Seattle singer/songwriter Will Rainier’s second solo album Wobble in the Moon offers vibrant proof that true artists are multi-faceted and evolve the way their muses intend.
www.jwvibe.com/single-post/will-rainier-wobble-in-the-moon

Wobble in the Moon is a visceral, affecting album full of deliciously unctuous washes of pedal steel and soft, welcome melodies.
