saving words in variables

Hi all,
My question is if there is a sentence with words enclosed in brackets how to capture those words in and store them in different variables.

$sentence = "(((the dog)chased)the cat)";
now i have to save "the dog " in one variable, "chased" in another variable, "the cat" in another variable.

The sentence pattern will be same but may be of any long.Any suggestions will be appreciated.

($one,$another,$variable) = $sentence =~ /([^()]+)/g;

But the sentence may be very long with many words in there anyway to generate the variables in the LHS according to the words in RHS.In other words the sentence may change with more than three variables.How to deal with it....

@words = ( $sentence =~ /([^()]+)/g );
