CAPO 1st FRET

I found this tab on a Swedish website, so the credit goes to a certain Petter S.

This tab is by far the closest thing to the album version and sounds nearly identical. 
does switch it up quite a bit when playing live however. Also this way is easier to play 
well.

Listen to the song to hear the song structure.

Deadweight on velveteen
It´s retained emptiness
It´s not what it seems
Uncover the mystery
Tell everyone what you see
It´s not what it seems
Vulgar when brought to light
Betray the image
There´s nothing between the sheets
It´s not what it seems
But deadweight on velveteen
Vulgar when brought to light
Vulgar the lie

Not sure who's responsible for the bad votes, but this tab is clearly the way Jose plays it. Play along to the CD and it sounds perfect. Or alternatively watch him live and see for yourself:

I'm not really sure, and trust me I spent enough time myself getting frustrated trying to learn incorrect tabs for this song. But the video I posted above shows how Jose really plays it (i.e. this way).

Ultimately it doesn't really matter - pick whichever way you like as long you're spreading Jose's wonderful music! :)
