  • Goodbye Horses - Q Lazzarus

    6:29

    This is the original cover sleeve of the 'Goodbye Horses' single, so people can see that it is a woman singing. The picture is of Q Lazzarus. I too, initially thought it was a man singing, but knowing that it is not, does not detract from the fact that the song is amazing and powerful. The song lyrics and composition by William Garvey (who died in 2009) and sung by Q Lazzarus.
    Actual lyrics are :-

    GOODBYE HORSES
    He told me, I've seen it rise,
    But, it always falls.
    I've seen 'em come, I've seen 'em go.

    He said, All things pass into the night.

    And I said, Oh no sir, I must say you're wrong,
    I must disagree, Oh no sir, I must say you're wrong,
    Won't you listen to me?

    He told me, I've seen it all before,
    I've been there, I've seen my hopes and dreams
    lying on the ground.
    I've seen the sky, just begin to fall.

    He said, All things pass into the night
    And I said, Oh no sir, I must say you're wrong,
    I must disagree, Oh no sir, I must say you're wrong,
    Won't you listen to me.

    Goodbye horses, I'm flying over you.
    Goodbye horses, I'm flying over you.

    ---You can check this, by going to William Garvey's website.
    It's a woman singing about a man (sung in past tense), and what he's telling her is all very negative, to which she disagrees. It's pretty simplistic in it's verses. The 'Goodbye Horses' lyric is clearly a metaphor. There are no horses in the song.
    Basically, it's the mind we're talking about here. 'Goodbye Horses' is saying goodbye to the mind. So it could just be Death on the whole. I believe Garvey intended the song to be quite uplifting, however, he didn't have control over Q Lazzarus' voice. But as with any song, it's all down to interpretation (well, unless the singer says otherwise and screws that up)
    A lot of people say 'Goodbye Horses' is about drugs, namely, cocaine. But there isn't really any indication to that. On the flipside to the 'Goodbye Horses' vinyl, is a song called 'White Lines', which could easily be misconstrued as being about cocaine, but the lyric within the song goes 'White lines over the ocean'. But even if the song is a reference to cocaine, it does not mean that 'Goodbye Horses' is.
    'Goodbye Horses' was not written for the movie 'The Silence Of The Lambs (1991 Jonathan Demme)'. The song was written and released in 1988, a month after the book (by Thomas Harris) was released. The song appeared in 'Married To The Mob' (another Demme movie) which was released in theatres across America a month after the books release, thus making it impossible.

    Unfortunately Q Lazzarus only made a few songs and they are very hard to come by:-
    'The Candle Goes Away', which featured in the 1986 movie 'Something Wild' staring Melanie Griffith, i believe (another Demme movie) .
    'White Lines' which appeared on the flipside to the 'Goodbye Horses' vinyl.
    'Heaven' (a cover of 'The Talking Heads') which appeared in the film 'Philadelphia' (yet another Demme movie), which you can see a clip of (on YouTube) under the title.. 'Soul Song In The End Of The Party', you even see Q herself, seemingly wearing the same jacket as on the Goodbye Horses cover sleeve, and wearing a hat. Unfortunately the song seems to be an in-movie song, and thus not a proper recording.
    Also, Q Lazzarus wrote and composed music, alongside Danny Z, for a movie named 'Twisted' by director Seth Michael Donsky released in 1996. I read a review of the film by someone, who said 'that the movie should of just been a 2 hour MTV music video, which could mean (not certain) that Q lazzarus sings some other songs...here's hoping.

    You told me, I see the rise
    But, it always falls
    I see them come, I see them go
    You say, All things pass into the night
    And I say, Oh no sir I must say you're wrong
    I must disagree, oh no sir, I must say you're wrong
    Won't you listen to me

    You told me, I've seen it all before
    I been there, I've seen my hopes and dreams
    Lying on the ground

    I've seen the sky just begin to fall
    And you say, All things pass into the night
    And I say, Oh no sir, I must say you're wrong
    I must disagree, oh no sir, I must say you're wrong
    Won't you listen to me

    Good-bye horses, I'm flying over you
    Good-bye horses, I'm flying over you
    Good-bye horses, I'm flying over you
    Good-bye horses, I'm flying, flying, flying over you

    Good-bye horses, I'm flying over you
    Good-bye horses, I'm flying over you
    Good-bye horses, I'm flying over you
    Good-bye horses, I'm flying, flying, flying over you

    Label: No.19 Music (
    Release Date - 2012-10-22
    Album Goodbye Horses available on:

    Buy Digital at - (
    Buy Vinyl at - (

    No.19 Music look once again to the multi talented Tone of Arc for their latest single, an atmospheric cover version of the 1988 hit Goodbye Horses, the release also features a remix from the ever excellent Deniz Kurtel. Jonny Whites No.19 Music has been keeping up the pressure in 2012 with a string of quality releases from the likes of Art Department & Konrad Black, Ali Love, Cameo Culture and Tone of Arc, the San Francisco based, multi-instrumentalist producer who has become a core member of the No19 team. Tone of Arc, better known to friends as Derrick Boyd has been a fixture on the electronic music scene for a number of years but its since hooking up with Jonny White and No19 that his star has really gone into its ascendency. His debut single Shaking the Sky/No Pushers received broad critical acclaim on its release earlier this year and sawDerrick featured widely in the international press. Now Tone of Arc is backed with a brand new release that is set to give an insight into the broader musical realms of which he inhabits. The record opens up with Goodbye Horses, a cover of the 1988 Q Lazarus hit that famously featured in the film Silence of the Lambs. Boyd treats the composition with a deft touch, staying true to the original in many ways whilst bringing his own unique sound to bear, a dark edged eighties electro feel runs throughout and Boyds own vocals soar over the arrangement with real power, quality stuff indeed. Goodbye Horses is followed by one of Boyds original compositions, the excellent Sound Sail featuring vocals from Boyd and partner Zoe Presnick. Sound Sail has a distinctly balaeric feel with its repeated piano chords and uplifting vocal elements playing off the rolling rhythms and deep pads/synths. The original version is complimented by a remix from Crosstown Rebels / Wolf + Lamb artist Deniz Kurtel, she turns Sound Sail into a stripped and ethereal reworking that is brilliantly hypnotic and a perfect late night twist on Boyds original.With rumour of a Tone of Arc album in the pipeline for early 2013, this is another wonderful taster of just what this guy can do and with Jonny Whites No19 label behind him it would seem he is set for big things.

    Hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo

    He told me, I seen you rise
    But, it always falls
    I see him come, I see him go

    He says, All things pass, into the night
    And I say, Oh no sir, I must say, you're wrong
    I must disagree, oh no sir, I must say, you're wrong
    A won't you listen to me

    He told me, I've seen it all before
    I've been there
    I've seen my hopes and dreams a-lying on the ground

    I've seen the sky just begin to fall
    He says, All things pass, into the night
    And I say, Oh no sir, I must say. you're wrong
    I must disagree, oh no sir, I must say. you're wrong
    Won't you listen to me?

    Goodbye horses
    I'm flying over you
