Thanks to others for chording this out.  Wanted to add the whole song, instead of 
abbreviated lyrics.  This is as found on The Mountain Goats Wiki.  http://

Verse:
 D  Em        The men were here to get your Belgian things
 Em A         They'll store them for you in an airplane hangar
 D  Em        There's guys in biohazard suits, mud kicking on their rubber boots
 Em Aadd4 A   They've come to keep your pretty things from danger

D  G    D  G

 D  Em        The men were here to get your Belgian things
 Em A         They'll spend the whole day hauling them downstairs
 D  Em        I shot a roll of thirty-two exposures
 Em Aadd4 A   My camera groans beneath the weight it bears

Chorus:
 G A        I can see you in my sleep
 D G        Playing the points for all you're worth
 G Aadd4 A  Walking gingerly across the bruised earth

D  G    D  G    D  G    D  G

 D  Em        The men were here to get your Belgian things
 Em A         They waltzed right through the door and went flourescent
 D  Em        Their boots were black and shiny and your treasures gleamed like stars
 Em Aadd4 A   Bones from deep down in the fertile crescent

D  G    D  G

 D  Em        The arteries are clogging in the mainframe
 Em A         There's too much information in the pipes
 D  Em        I saw the mess you left up in the east bedroom
 Em A         A tiger's never gonna change its stripes

Bridge:
 G A    I guess, I guess
 F#m G  But Jesus what a mess
 Bm D    One way in and
 G A    No way out

D  G    D  G    D  G    D  G

 D  Em        The men were here to get your Belgian things
 Em A         And only I was here to see them do it
 D  Em        I wish you had a number where you are
 Em Aadd4 A   It's hard with no one here to help me through it

 G A        I can see you in my sleep
 D G        Playing the points for all you're worth
 G Aadd4 A  Walking gingerly across the bruised earth

D  G    D  G    D  G    D  G
