Like with the other songs in the game, it primarily relies on the two square wave channels with the lead voice on channel 2 and the backup on channel 1. However, unlike all the other songs in the game, this song utilizes the noise channel for percussion. Most likely, the developers told Michiharu Hasuya that there wouldn't be any sound effects playing during this point of the game, so he was free to incorporate the noise channel. Why he didn't also use the triangle channel is still a mystery.

The song is track 9 in the NSF file.
