I never sleep anymore and I can breathe underwater
And I can see in the darkness since you left me in the dark

I replay scenes from the marriage on the screen inside my head
I've got a 20 screen multiplex rising up above my bed

I've never been the same again not since I've had the operation
The surgeons ripped out my heart but they left me with a brain
Oh yeah they left me with a brain

So I watch movies in the darkness in a language I don't speak
But they're all subtitled they're all subtitled in Chinese

But I don't speak Chinese so I'll just never understand
Why you don't love me anymore and why your boyfriend wants to kill me
And why I'm watching this film at four in the morning
When I have to go to work so I can earn me a living
So I can have a place to sleep, or not
Depending on what is playing at the multiplex and what is playing at the movies
I need a Chinese phrasebook
