Diving Horse's Ghost

from by The Deafening Colors



There's a diving horse's ghost under Atlantic City skies
and all the oil from your sunscreen, it melts into the eyes
of the lifeguards watching bathers, and nobody bothers me
'cause everyone is counting waves on vacation by the sea

Well I can hear the dynamite breaking down the old hotel
The concrete, it's still buried there deep beneath the well
that made our water famous with a national award
While mothers had their babies in the old pregnancy ward

Now the hospital's appended to a new casino floor
Membership will get you parking, put it on your card

There's a diving horse's ghost that's buried deep beneath the pier
But you'd never know it looking at the hell that they built here.
