----------------------=[EYES THAT WITNESSED MADNESS]=--------------------------

Riff 8 (Transition from [A MURDER OF RAVENS IN FUGUE] I placed it here, because
it is more a passage of this part than the previous.)
These are the most significant notes (keyboard plays an octave higher)

|-10==---------------|--9-9-9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9-9-9--8-8-8-8-8-8--8-8-8-8-8-8-|

After this, a keyboard fill is played, followed by riff 10 in slower rhythm.
There are bits of solo, which I decided not to include, because I think it
is not a significant addition to the song.

The song ends on the C5-chord:
|------|
|------|
|------|
|-12==-|
|-12==-|
|-10==-|

Followed by noise, and then it transits to 'Portrait of the Dead Countess'.
