Now Guitar 1 repeats Riff 1 ( 3 times ) and Guitar 2 plays Riff 2 the 2nd and 3rd time.


The lyrics are: 
1.What did I see, can I believe that what I saw that night was real and not just fantasy?
2.Just what I saw, in my old dreams, were they reflections of my warped mind staring back at me?
3.Cause in my dreams, itís always there, the evil face that twists my mind and leads me to despair.


Riff 2:
Guitar 2: Play 2 times. Use Palm Mute throughout this Riff.
