SUNSCREEM HQ notes (2018)

The debut album that brought it home to the cynics that a dance band could exist who could actually play their instruments and deliver powerhouse club tracks, including real songs with meaningful lyrics. With a tight rhythm section honed from a punishing schedule of live appearances at clubs, colleges, raves and venues (as well as a nationwide tour with Jesus Jones) “O3” became a seminal clubbers album spawning four Top 30 hits including the worldwide dance anthems “Love U More” and “Perfect Motion”.

In the US Sunscreem had two Billboard dance number ones with “Love U More” and “Pressure US” and they accompanied New Order on their Republica stadium tour, taking their unique live set to a whole new audience and helping “O3” to become the biggest UK debut album in the US in 1993.

Lyrics

Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart

Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my, break my heart

Release me…

I can’t stand the way that you make me
I feel pressure
I can’t stop the way that you take me
I feel pressure
(Release me)
I can’t stop the way that you place me
(Release me)
Under pressure
(Release me)

The sound flew in the bare room
And the ride’s no longer spare
And time will always fall apart
In a house where they don’t care
We fantasized your life
And recognized the sin
But it’s tit for tat – you take the rap
Now it’s me that’s gonna win

I can’t stand the way that you make me
I feel pressure
I can’t stop the way that you place me
Under pressure

You’ve got chalk on the sidewalk
And the telephone always rings
I’d rip the cord out, pull the wire out
Kick it in the shins
You’ve paralyzed the goldmine
And the trains are standing still
They pull you back
And now you’re trapped
As they move in for the kill
For the kill…

I can’t stand the way that you make me
I feel pressure
I can’t stop the way that you place me
Under pressure
(Release me)
I can’t stand the day that you wake me
(Release me)
I feel pressure
I can’t stand the way that you break me
(Release me)
Under pressure
(Release me)

Every time I walk out in the sun
The rain will come and really cry
Release me… Release me…
Release me… Release me…
Release me… Release me…

We found you in the spare room
With your eyes no longer there
The lamp flex led up to your heart
Like a diver’s cord for air
We electrolyzed your mind
And analyzed your limbs
Escapist crap – I’ve had all that
Now it’s me that’s gonna win
I’m gonna win…

I can’t stand the way that you make me
I feel pressure
I can’t stop the way that you place me
Under pressure
(Release me)
I can’t stand the day that you wake me
(Release me)
I feel pressure
(Release me)
I can’t stand the way that you break me
(Release me)
Under pressure, no, no
(Release me)

I can’t stand the way you disgrace me
(Release me)
I feel pressure
(Release me)
I can’t stop the way that you hate me
(Release me)
I feel pressure

Every time I walk out in the sun
The rain will come and really cry
Now I can’t be me at all
Now I can’t be me at all
Now I can’t be me at all

You can make the sun turn purple
You can make the sea turn turtle
But you know you can never make me
Love you more

You can turn wine into water
Turn sadness into laughter
But you know you can never make me
Love you more

Let the sky fall down
Let the leaves turn brown
Still you know you can never make me
Love you more

Let the redwoods die
Let the wells run dry
Still you know you can never make me
Love you more

You can make dew into diamonds
Or pacify the lions
But you know you can never make me
Love you more

You can make me dance to order
My sex hung, torn, and quartered
But you know you can never make me
Love you more

Let the new day hide
Leave the scars inside
Still you know you can never make me
Love you more
Let the rain poor down
Let the valleys drown
Still you know you can never make me
Love you more

We can make the sun turn purple
We can make the sea turn turtle
But you know you can never make me
Love you more
We can turn wine into water
As fathers rape their daughters
But you know you can never make me
Love you more

Let the sky fall down
Let the leaves turn brown
Still you know you can never make me
Love you more
Let the redwoods die
Let the wells run dry
Still you know you can never make me
Hey, you know you can never make me
Yeah you know you can never make me
Love you more

Drowning in your love…

If rhythm’s a drug I’m hooked on you
So show me every move
We’ve got perfect motion
You’re pulling me up into the blue
I’m drowning in your love
We’ve got perfect motion

We’ve got, we’ve got
We’ve got / we want
We’ve got we’ve got perfect motion
We’ve got / we want
We want/ we’ve got
Because we’ve got perfect motion
We’ve got / we want chaos because
We want / we got perfect motion
We’ve got / we want the lot
We’ll knock, we’ll knock
‘Til the doors break open

If rhythm’s a drug I’m hooked on you
So show me every move
We’ve got perfect motion
You’re pulling me up into the blue
I’m drowning in your love
We’ve got perfect motion

If rhythm’s a drug I’m hooked on you
So show me every move
We’ve got perfect motion
You’re pulling me up into the blue
I’m drowning in your love
We’ve got perfect motion

Wake up – we’ve got / we want chaos
Wake up – we’ve got perfect motion
Wake up – we’ve got to stop the rot
Wake up – we got evolution
Some have, some not
We want / we’ve got
Because we go round and over
Wake up, wake up, they’ve lost the plot
We’ll knock
‘Til the walls come crashing down

If rhythm’s a drug I’m hooked on you
So show me every move
We’ve got perfect motion
You’re pulling me up into the blue
I’m drowning in your love
We’ve got perfect motion

Drowning in your love…

We see as one, do as one
And speak as one
Walk as one, run as one,
And dance as one
We work as one, play as one
And lie as one
We live as one, die as one
And love as one

Sometimes I feel I have to
Lift my head and scream

I’m only chasing me dreams
It may not be what it seems

We sing as one, cry as one
And laugh as one
We come as one, go as one
And stay as one
We give as one, take as one
A chance as one
Make war as one, peace as one
And love as one

Sometimes I feel I have to
Lift my head and scream

I’m only chasing my dreams
It may not be what it seems
Can you hear the sun scream
Sun scream
I’m only chasing my dreams

Sometimes I feel I have to lift my head
Sometimes I feel I have to lift my head
I’m only chasing my dreams

Sometimes I feel I have to
Lift my head and scream
It may not be what it seems

Sometimes I feel I have to lift my head
I’m only chasing my dreams
Sometimes I feel I have to lose my head
It may not be what it seems

Sometimes I feel I have to lift my head
Can you hear the sun scream
Sometimes I feel I have to lose my head
I’m only chasing my dreams

Sometimes I feel I have to…
Sometimes I feel…

Give me, give me
Your hands

Still life, skin tight
Make-up in the hall
A photograph of Garbo
Passing time on the wall
Every little thing but the truth

When you’re big news
All used, cameras at the door
The film of your life
Takes a ride to New York
Every single frame has to end
As your sex lends appeal to a friend

Sing…
Happy Birthday
Have a nice day

Happy Birthday
Have a nice day

Ripped off pin-up, cry out to belong
They can’t love a woman
Now they’ve paid for a doll
Never trust a vulture to move
Now he’s looking for a shot in the nude

Sing…
Happy Birthday Mr. President
Have a nice day Mr. President

Happy Birthday Mr. President
Have a nice day Mr. President

Your hair-man hovers round
Make-up on the boards
It was just a note – a private joke
“While I’m still warm”
The vultures queue up at the morgue
Just a dollar for a shot at the corpse

Sing…
Happy Birthday
Have a nice day

Happy Birthday Mr. President
Have a nice day Mr. President
“37-22-35” R.I.P.

…Will somebody please tell the DJ
to put the brass disc on?

Trip on this….

On a hazy Sunday
When the world thinks it’s alright
And mother hears the news say
“It’s a crime – it’s black and white”

Yeah, showing out is easy
I wouldn’t want to be in her shoes
Well maybe you can see me, yeah
Don’t run, move on, catch me if you can

Walk on the face of love, walk on
So long – I’m gonna trip you up
If you tread on my face for fun

Oh, yesterday was Friday
When you held your hand in mine
A law of spite and hearsay
Well we don’t mind – they’re wasting time

Yeah, even if you made me
I wouldn’t want to be in your shoes

A diva if you paid me, yeah
To be some high-class jackass
Licking from your hand

Walk on the face of love, walk on
So long – I’m gonna trip you up
If you tread on my face for fun

Trip on this…

Yeah, even if you made me
Like a Goody-goody Two Shoes
No-no-no-no-no-no time to be a lady, yeah
Well this is our space, our place
Don’t they understand?

Walk on the face of love, walk on
So long – I’m gonna trip you up
If you tread on my face for fun

Walk on the face of love, walk on
So long – I’m gonna trip you up
If you tread on my face for fun
Walk on…

Could have come through anytime
Cold and lonely, your return
What are you fighting for?
It’s not my security

It’s just an old war
Not even a cold war
Don’t say it in Russian
Don’t say it in German
Say it in broken English
Say it in broken English

Lose your father, and your husband
Your mother and your children
What are you dying for?
It’s not my reality

It’s just an old war
Not even a cold war
Don’t say it in Russian
Don’t say it in German
Say it in broken English
Say it in broken English

What are you fighting for?
Say it in broken English
What are you fighting for?

Release me
Release me
Release me
Release me

I can’t stand
I can’t stand
I can’t stand the way
I can’t stand the way
That you make me feel
