"Death from Within" as written by and Dave Mustaine....
The heat is raging from the rising fires of war
Embers of avarice soon begin to soar
Vengeance breeding greater vengeance, two eyes for one eye
Crowning burning hatred that’s lying deep inside

A token gift, destroyers deep within its hold
Revenge of patient men is sweet and best served cold
The enemy inside the belly of the beast
A mighty Trojan horse, tonight the sentries sleep

On the march, no place to run
Time has come, no where to hide
The moon is red, no one is safe
From spilling blood, no living thing survives

Here they fight, regretting nothing
Here you die, the walls are caving in
Nothing left, a lethal encounter
Its judgment time, when death comes from within

Warning signs ignored, they have all but been denied
Prophets and messengers, mocked and vilified
Final destination lying deep inside their court
Their first line of defense soon became their last resort

Hardened deceivers entered through their open gates
Silent trained assassins, lying still, in wait

On the march, no place to run
Time has come, no where to hide
The moon is red, no one is safe
From spilling blood, no living thing survives

Here they fight, regretting nothing
Here you die, the walls are caving in
Nothing left, a lethal encounter
Its judgment time, when death comes from within

On the march, no place to run
Time has come, no where to hide
The moon is red, no one is safe
From spilling blood, no living thing survives

Here they fight, regretting nothing
Here you die, the walls are caving in
Nothing left, a lethal encounter
Its judgment time, when death comes from within

On the march, no place to run
Time has come, no where to hide
The moon is red, no one is safe
From spilling blood, no living thing survives

Here they fight, regretting nothing
Here you die, the walls are caving in
Nothing left, a lethal encounter
Its judgment time, when death comes from within

Death from within
Death from within
Death from within
Death from within
Death from within
Death from within
Death from within
Death from within

    Song MeaningThis song is about the Trojan War and how the Achaeans tricked the Trojans by sending them a horse statue filled with soldiers. The Trojans thought the horse was a gift and brought it into their walls and city. Later the soldiers got out of the horse and massacred the entire population. Hence, "Death from Within".
