He plays G blues all the time, sounds very jazzy however.
At the end of the (fast) Outro he repeats 4 notes of Riff 3.

lyrics as in the CD booklet:

verse
Look into my eyes, what do you see?
Cult of Personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
I've been everything you want to be
I'm the Cult of Personality
Like Mussolini and Kennedy
prechorus
I'm the (3x) Cult of Personality

chorus
Neon lights, a Nobel price
The mirror speaks, his reflection lies
You don't have to follow me
Only you can set me free

verse
I sell the things you need to be
I'm the smiling face on your tv
I'm the Cult of Personality
I exploit you still you love me

I tell you one and one makes three
I'm the Cult of Personality
Like Joseph Stalin and Ghandi
prechorus
I'm the (3x) Cult of Personality

chorus
Neon lights, a Nobel price
The mirror speaks, his reflection lies
You don't have to follow me
Only you can set me free

You gave me fortune
You gave me fame
You gave me power in your God's name
I'm every person you need to be
I'm the Cult of Personality
