What is the system that gets around?
Recruits hearts with its timeless rhythm
The young glow but old men know
It's all a part of some crazy schism

Comin' on like the dawn, unrelentin' light
Streets thick with its radiatin'
It's all a glow but we all know
True love is so complicated

Feelin' funny, don't know why
I'm on a plane circlin' high
Equation, persuasion
It's just persuasion

Who needs the body that has nobody?
Go through life with nobody at all
It come and go where the wind blow
When persuasion comes to call

Feelin' funny, don't know why
I'm on a plane flying too high
Invasion, persuasion
It's just persuasion
It's just persuasion
It's just persuasion

Got me reelin' don't know why
I'm on a plane circling high
Equation, persuasion
Got the feeling I'm runnin' in place
Caught in the orbit of the human race
Invasion, persuasion
It's just persuasion
It's just persuasion
It's just persuasion

Who needs the body that has nobody?
Who needs the rise without the fall?
Who needs illusion without beauty?
Who needs the system that's no system at all?

Hey scout, there's no equation
You can't prepare for the heart's invasion
You can't prepare for the heart's invasion
Love is its own persuasion
Love is its own persuasion
Love has its own persuasion
