[Chorus:] I am the one in ten A number on a list I am the one in ten Even though I don`t exist Nobody Knows me Even though I`m always there A statistic, a reminder Of a world that doesn`t care
My arms enfold the dole queue Malnutrition dulls my hair My eyes are black and lifeless With an underprivileged stare I`m the beggar on the corner Will no-one spare a dime? I`m the child that never learns to read `Cause no-one spared the time
I`m the murderer and the victim The licence with the gun I`m a sad and bruised old lady In an ally in a slum I`m a middle aged businessman With chronic heart disease I`m another teenaged suicide In a street that has no trees
I`m a starving third world mother A refugee without a home I`m a house wife hooked on Valium I`m a Pensioner alone I`m a cancer ridden spectre Covering the earth I`m another hungry baby I`m an accident of birth.
