What I meant is, let's look at the progression:

   A  B  C# B  A     G# A  B  A  G#    F# G# A  G# F#    F  F# G# F# F
   F# G# A  G# F#    E  F# G# F# E     D  E  F# E  D     C# D#D  C#
F#--------------- E---------------- D---------------- C#---------------

I put the part in bold, in the last section the middle voice uses D# (the major second of the C# major scale, as expected) when moving up but D (minor second) when moving down. When the "synth line" kicks in, this quirk disappears because this voice is now used for the synth line.

That makes it an augmented chord. Oh wow cool that is cool.

  F  F# G# F# F
  C# D#D  C#
C#---------------

That chord also functions as a harmony line, so it's sort of weaving an alternate "trick" melody that doesn't actually even occur. Wow that is really good.

Music is really hard to describe in words, but I get what you're getting at.
Yamero~~!
