These chords occur in the verses.  The chorus just plays straight chords.
Here is the complete song:


Intro:  E6   Gdim6   E6   Gdim6   (a couple of times)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/bauhaus/slice_of_life_tab.html ]
    E6                             Gdim6
Her gaze hit the side of mine so I opened it out
     E6                         Gdim6
To destroy what you thought was difference
     E6
So I lied to you once again
     Gdim6
So I painted over you once again
     E6
So I die before you once again
           Gdim6
What's the difference?

E6   Gdim6   E6   Gdim6

     E6
Come clearly where the flavour is
     Gdim6
Seen here in black and white
       E6
You've got two seconds, baby boy
   Gdim6
In burning light white light
           E6          G   E6   G
What's the difference?

Em
Clear up what you are
G
Burn out these eyes
F#
Rip up this place and scream

          Em           G   F#
I am your slice of life
          Em           G   F#
I am your slice of life
          Em           G   F#
I am your slice of life
          Em           G   F#
I am your slice of life (life)


Slight interlude: G/E   G*   (<-- play the G riff with an E bass note, then a G bass note)

Shivering under lamposts, shivering under glass
You're standing on charisma again
God knows it cannot last
What's the difference?

Ice inside your body
Blood inside your soul
Yet still twelve faces stand around
Hugging your skinny bones
What's the difference?

   Em
So clear up what you are
G
Burn out these eyes
F#                    F
Rip up this place and scream

I am your slice of life
I am your slice of life
I am your slice of life
I am your slice of life


(continue with the Em G F# chord progression to the end of the song)

And the car opened him up to so much more
And the money is brighter with a wider smile
And the problem expands inside your head
I am your slice of life
I am your slice of life
I am your slice of life
I am your slice of life
