"Dispatch the Troops" as written by and Matthew/werner Sting/miller....
Daughter of Zion once precious princess
Left hers father house
To walk streets that never rest
Maybe they'll hear me in metropolis
So I'm sending an SOS
Fighting with her ta
She wants out of this mess
And those big city lights
Might brighten up the darkness
You know that I'm tired and you know that I'm stressed
You can't stop me and you can't stop this
You could call the police try to make an arrest
Today is the day that I repossess
Leaving on the first bus that I can get
Now its rings around eyes sopping wet from rain droplets
Window shopping for some solace
No address and penniless
That's the price you pay for running away from the stress
Feeling the pain like dance by the DJ
Reminds me of a time when things were ok
Frightened by her own shadow
Now she wants to go home
Many names for one G-d
Trotting on, through the facade
You were all my children
Got a dig for that feeling
Love will break through concealment
Strip away the serpent's skin
We came to win
Dispatch the troops
Send the captain
My gem is held captive in the dungeon
Don't come back till you end the mission
If it takes a long time
Don't lose the vision
If you're stuck
Check the blueprint
Look within
Reflection
Got to find the rhythm
Won't you please return child
Where you been
She says I can't come home because he won't let me in
And besides we don't need no more friction
Uses to look so nice, how'd you get so thin?
With a heart like ice, it's a heart of sin
Skin white like a ghost with a pale complexion
Pray to g-d for the dead we need resurrection
Don't you know wherever you go thick and thin
You are still my children
Since you've been gone my soul's been hearting
Wondering through this world
We are just boys and girls
Many names for one G-d
Trotting on, through the facade

    General CommentI love this song, I especially love the lyrics
    "Strip away the serpent’s skin
    We came to win
    Dispatch the troops
    Send the captain
    My gem is held captive in the dungeon
    Don’t come back till you end the mission
    If it takes a long time
    Don’t lose the vision
    If you’re stuck
    Check the blueprint
    Look within
    Reflection
    Got to find the rhythm
    Won’t you please return child"
    I think they're sung with just so must emotion and have a distinct catchiness. But anyway I think this is definetely about religion and God.
