(Note: This is my best guess. It's a little hard to figure it out because
 the notes are a little muddy. This is just a rough estimate.)
There is another synth burst at 2:55. It sounds like one chord being bent
by a pitch shifter, so I just bend the living shit out a chord that is
shaped like x-x-16-18-19-x. It's some sort of F# chord.
