Watching Romeo dissolve, I was tempted to join him
By the mirror of the lake where the statues unfurled
I had never seen a man so abuse his reflection

As the light shines through your Chinese bones

Watching Juliet implode, I would hasten toward her
But around her feet I sat that her serpent was curled
And her eyeballs had rolled up so her pupils had vanished

And the light shines through your Chinese bones
As the light shines through your Chinese bones

I met an interesting dwarf and I told him a story
As you walk towards the East, then your shadow must rise
Something Shakespeare never said was 'you've got to be kidding'

As the light shines through your Chinese bones
As the light shines through your Chinese bones

The line between us is so thin I might as well be you
And everywhere I've ever been I know you're going to

Chinese bones
Chinese bones
