"Petition" as written by Alaina Moore-riley and Patrick Riley....
I'd prefer to think of him as a man of many means
Of powers extreme, exposed to the extreme
Nature's so to demand, he may never change his mind
The only possible excuse for pretending to be blind

Petition for a life unknown
To all my friends, the censor's shown, no, oh, oh

Petition for a life unknown
To all my friends, the censor's shown, no, oh, oh

I can't 'member why are these more to sound mysterious
His anger extreme, exposed to the extreme
Has he a hidden past?
And memories that don't go back
And have to remember what I'm supposed to like

Petition for a life unknown
To all my friends, the censor's shown, no, oh, oh

Petition for a life unknown
To all my friends, the censor's shown, no, oh, oh

For those who've never had
You keep coming back
You take, take, take away
'Til the very last
For those who've never had
You keep coming back
Take, take, take away
'Til the very last

Petition for a life unknown
To all my friends, the censor's shown, no, oh, oh

Petition for a life unknown
To all my friends, the censor's shown, no, oh, oh

Petition for a life unknown
To all my friends, the censor's shown, no, oh, oh

Petition for a life unknown
To all my friends, the censor's shown, no, oh, oh

    Lyric CorrectionCorrected lyrics as posted by Alaina on the Tennis Facebook page:

    I prefer to think of him
    as a man of many means
    of powers extreme
    disposed to the extreme
    nature so determined
    he may never change his mind
    the only possible excuse
    for pretending to be blind

    Petition for a life unknown
    to all my predecessors shown

    I can't know the why of this
    his motives are mysterious
    his anger extreme
    disposed to the extreme
    has he a hidden past
    my memories they don't go back
    enough to remember what
    I'm supposed to lack

    Petition for a life unknown
    to all my predecessors shown

    for those who've never had
    you keep coming back
    you take, take, take away
    till the very last
