The world is fast becoming younger
            A# Am          C
The news is all they've ever known
                  C A#                 C                      
They've seen the wars, the hurt, the hunger

How will they choose when they are grown?

             C A#       C
What do you tell forever's children

Whatever spins a grim tornado
          A# Am             C 
Can also turn a potter's wheel

Get a little hint how God must feel
 Am            C     Am            C
Give a little turn, listen to it spin
 Am              C        G      C       
Make it in the shape you want it in

Tell with your life a bloody story 
                 A# Am         C
Teach to their dreams not burning steel
             C A#                   C
It's not in bombs where lies the glory 
                A#  Am           C
But in what's shattered on the field

               C A#            C
The potter's wheel takes love and caring
           A# Am         C
Skill and patience fast and slow
              C A#           C
The works it makes are easily broken

Give a little turn, listen to it spin

Make it in the shape you want it in

                C   A#         C
Some day some children will be digging 
         A# Am       C
In some long forgotten ground
                 C A#        C
And they'll find our civilization 
               A# Am         C
Or what's left of it to be found

                  C  A#           C
They'll find the weapons of destruction
            A# Am       C
But buried deeper in the hole
                C  A#           C
They'll find a message and a promise 
        A# Am               C
In the sand, the potter's bowl

Earth and water and wind conspire 
      Am    C         G        C
With human hands and love and fire
