The chorus its self is high in pitch and very thick. The bridge was intense with high long notes; it also used vocal effects, grace notes and vocal slides. The outro is basically 12 bars of vocal improvisation, in which the flanger effect is used. The Melody (vocal) range of this piece is very large, this is patricianly because of the use of falsetto by Buckley, e.g. bar 55.
There is a dramatic neopolitan chord [the flattened supertonic- Eb major 1st inversion] in bar 95. Timbre The vocal part is for a tenor voice, with some sections requiring a quiet, whispered tone.

The bass moves chromatically up through D # to begin the next verse on Em9.
