This metaphoric track is the first in an EP focusing the spotlight on human rights, equality, and especially, the right to choose.

Lyrics

I am the cobbler, I'm not a good one
I make shoes you'll have to wear forever
One size fits all, doesn't matter

I am the cobbler, I'm not a good one
How you came to need the shoes I'm making
Is not of interest, I'm not listening

When I hand you a pair I couldn't walk a mile while wearing
Don't be mad, don't get even
Don't rise up to change the system

I am the cobbler, I'm not a good one
I've advertised reduced selection
Styles and sizes, no more options

When I hand you a pair I couldn't walk a mile while wearing
Don't be mad, don't get even
Don't rise up to change the system

You had a chance, you had a choice
This restriction's taken years to set the course
You could get mad, refuse to pay
If enough orders were cancelled I would change
I'd have to change

When I hand you a pair I couldn't walk a mile while wearing
You say you're mad, you'll get even, rising up to change the system

I am a cobbler, I'm not a good one
Thought this plan would last forever
Turns out combat boots are favored

I'm currently recording my EP, Just Getting Started.  The first single, The Cobbler, is available now above.

It's also go time for the 50/90 songwriting challenge from July 4th through October 1st, so there should be plenty of new material to discover here and on my social media throughout the summer.
