"First Strike Is Deadly" as written by Eric Stanley Peterson, Greg Christian, Alexander Nathan Skolnick and Steven Souza....
Prisoners of the venom master
Guilty for what you've been charged
Sit in cells condemned to face
The deadly snap of their jaws

Terror stricken you lie and wait
In the final hour
Knowing of your wretched fate
And the serent power

First strike is deadly

The evil path that you must take
Is filled with the slither of snakes
Their hiding and waiting for the time to lunge
For your flesh and your fate

No one escapes or comes out alive
For the snakes they'll never lose
For if they hit you just one time
You have just faced your doom

First strike is deadly

Deadly strike bred to kill
The venoms howling in your veins
Psychotic spell a gift from hell
The sound of a deadly lead remains

    General CommentSeriously! This is one of their best songs!

    I always joked this could be Mario when he's small, where 'if they (bad guys) hit you just one time, you have just faced your doom'.
