One in Ten Lyrics

[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...

    It is about unemployment. When the song was recorded one in ten people were out of work.
    Also a UB40 was a card given out to people who were registered as unemployed.
