I think this is beutiful song, with the exiting Tony Levin's bass.
Unfortunately I've never seen a Tony Levin live performance, so I
don't know the tecnique he uses to create such a bass feeling.
Note that the 4th string is tuned as an Eb and not as an E.
Once more sorry for my bad english.
HAVE FUN!!!

He tapes drumsticks to his fingers and slaps with them. Thats how he gets the sound.

I am curious why you are tuned to Eb as I cannot see you playing it as an open string. Could I get the same effect by playing up one fret on an E?

i.e Eb|----------|-----------|---------|x5-5-5/7--5-5-1/3-|

becomes E|----------|-----------|---------|x6-6-6/8--6-6-2/4-|
