Right before the Interlude part, the Riff II is played like before, but 
the end of it is repeated a bunch right before the Interlude begins.

Interlude: (these are lots of strange effects, like a pitch shifter i think)
           (this is a great section, reminds me of Pink Floyd)

Im not quite sure where you got this tab from. For the most part, the technique is good, but the verses are wrong.
