One In Ten

Intro||:G  |F  |G  |F  |G  |F  |G  |F  :|| 


G                     F 
I am the one in ten,A number on a list, 
G                   F 
I am the one in ten,Even though i don`t exist, 
G             F 
Nobody knows me,But i`m always there, 
G                 F 
A statistic,A reminder of a world that does`nt care. 

Saxophone Instrumental:G  |F  |G  |F  |G  |F  |G  |F  | 

verse 1: 
G                                          F 
My arms unfold the dole queue,Malnutrition dulls my hair, 
G                                            F 
My eyes are black and lifeless with an underprivileged stare, 
G                                    F 
I`m the beggar on the corner will no one spare a dime?, 
G                                      F 
I`m the child that never learns to read `cause no one spared the time. 

 
G                     F 
I am the one in ten,A number on a list,  
G                   F 
I am the one in ten,Even though i don`t exist,  
G             F 
Nobody knows me,But i`m always there, 
G                 F 
A statistic,A reminder of a world that does`nt care. 

Saxophone Instrumental:G  |F  |G  |F  |G  |F  |G  |F  | 

verse 2: 
G                                      F 
I`m the murderer,The victim,I`m the license to a gun, 
G                                        F 
I`m a sad and bruised old lady in an ally in a slum, 
G                                         F 
I`m a middle aged businessman with chronic heart disease, 
G                          F 
I`m another teenage suicide in a street that has no trees. 


G                     F 
I am the one in ten,A number on a list, 
G                   F 
I am the one in ten,Even though i don`t exist, 
G             F 
Nobody knows me,But i`m always there, 
G                 F            
A statistic,A reminder of a world that does`nt care. 

Saxophone Instrumental:G  |F  |G  |F  |G  |F  |G  |F  | 

verse 3: 
G                                             F 
I`m a starving third world mother,Refugee with out a home, 
G                                         F 
I`m a housewife hooked on Valium,I`m a pensioner alone, 
G                                  F 
I`m a cancer ridden spectre discovering the earth, 
G                      F 
I`m another hungry baby i`m an accident at birth.  


G                     F 
I am the one in ten,A number on a list, 
G                   F 
I am the one in ten,Even though i don`t exist, 
G             F 
Nobody knows me,But i`m always there, 
G                 F 
A statistic,A reminder of a world that does`nt care. 

Saxophone Instrumental:G  |F  |G  |F  |G  |F  |G  |F  | 

G                     F 
I am the one in ten,A number on a list, 
G                   F 
I am the one in ten,Even though i don`t exist, 
G             F 
Nobody knows me,But i`m always there, 
(n/c) 
A statistic,A reminder of a world that does`nt care.
