about

Formed in 1986 by guitarist Mark Weddington, bassist Mark Lyerly, drummer Michael James, and vocalist Binny Orrell, HAVOC would quickly become one of the strongest drawing acts on the N.C. club scene. In 1988 the band would release a six-song, self-titled EP that would be well received by fans, press, and industry. The foursome continued to maintain a steady draw and eventually recorded another four tracks.
Unfortunately, as the coming decade was drawing near HAVOC would become another one of those all too common stories of 80s rock causalities to the changing times.
Now three decades after their forming Heaven and Hell Records are re-issuing those HAVOC recordings for the first time ever on CD all re-mastered by Jamie King at The Basement Studios NC and re-packaged with new artwork by Steve Cobb, full lyrics, and never before seen photos. The pressing will be limited to 500.
This will surely be a blast from the past for those who were there, and a new discovery for those fans and collectors of 80s melodic rock worldwide.

Track Name: Havoc - Pain and Pleasure
Pain and Pleasure

Feeling like a stranger lost inside your heart
I know you feel no pain now that we’re apart
I know you don’t remember the things you said to me
I can’t understand - It’s all some mystery

When I feel the pain there’s pleasure in your eyes
Time and time again you filled me with your lies
When I feel the pain there’s pleasure in your eyes
I still hold the flame but you, you broke the ties

You have no feeling for me- it’s just your little game
The things that give you pleasure cause me so much pain
We’re running around in circles- you take me for a fool
How can you be so cold- How could you be so cruel

Chorus:
Picking up the pieces of my broken heart
I should have seen right through you from the very start
You’re reaching out for something you can never hold
And now you find yourself stranded in the cold

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Havoc - Only You
Only You

Trying to find your way of of this life
It seems I think of only you
Living in a world of my dreams it’s so hard
When I think of only you
When I’m without you I feel
So cold and alone
You know I think of only you

Though I’ve tried to leave you alone
The pain burns inside me
I have no will of my own
My heart you’ve torn in two
I’ll carry on I’ll carry on

Chorus:
Still I dream of only you
Dream of only you
Dream of only you
Dream of only you

Memories are all that I have
In my life- it’s so hard to face them
Still I dream of only you
Pictures of you in my mind- they’re not real
You know I break down inside
Because I think of only you

Though I’ve tried to leave you alone
I can’t forget your love
You know my heart is bleeding for you
And the love that we once had
I’ll carry on, oh! I’ll carry on

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Havoc - On Your Knees
On your Knees

I’ve played the field
Like no one before
They have come and gone
Right through my door
But you were like no other
You said you would be mine
And now you’ve found another fool
How could I be so blind

You’ll come crawling back to me
On your knees
You’ll be back begging for me
On your knees

You have made me feel
Like no one has before
You just left me there
You won’t be back no more
But you were like no other
You said you would be mine
And now you’ve found another fool
How could I be so blind
Track Name: Havoc - Will I See You Again
Will I See You Again

I can't live without you, you know it’s true
Even after all the things that you do
You make me, you break me, you tear me down
I don’t want to live without you around
Lady…

I’ve tried to tell you my feeling inside
Of all the things I’ve tried to hide
You’ve used me… bruised me, tore me in two
I can’t take the pain of living with you
Lady…

I don’t want to see you no more
Don’t want to see your face
You lied - I showed you the door
You’ve got to get out of this place
‘Cause we’re living a lie- you’re breaking my dreams
You're tearing me apart at the seams
I realize you need love too
What am I supposed to do?

Will I see you again
Won’t you tell me
Will I see you again
What’s your answer
Will I see you again
Girl don’t you lie
Will I see you again?

I tried so hard to do things that’re right for me
You tried to tell me I’m wrong- It’s only some fantasy
It was all just a lie- You’ve broken my dreams
You play with my head and heart it seems
I realize you need love too
Now what am I supposed to do
Track Name: Havoc - Back for the Kill
Back for the Kill

In the black of night
The killings have begun
I hit the ground
I’m a loaded gun
Half-man, half-machine
Programmed to hate
I’m a killing prodigy
I feel no pain
No sorrow for your soul
I have no heart
My blood runs cold
As I pick you up you begin to scream
I crush your bones
Is this only a dream?

Now I’m back for the kill
Back for the kill

With robot sights
And a stone cold frown
I load them up
And I gun you down
You may run but
You cannot hide
I play for keeps
Time in on my side
Track Name: Havoc - Hold On
Hold on

Is it really hidden
Or well within our sight
To you it’s black as coal
To me it’s snow white
Losers can’t be winners
If they never play the game
Beggars can’t be choosers
Nothing ventured- Nothing gained

Chorus:
Hold on to your dreams
Keep the fire burning
It’s not too late to see
Hold on to your dreams
They’re not so far away
As they may seem

Repeat Chorus

It’s well within our grasp
Yet somehow far away
Keep reaching for your dreams
Keep waiting for that day
If a picture’s worth a thousand words
To me you’ve said but few
Climb the ladder of success making your own rules

Repeat Chorus

It’s not the grand illusion
It’s not some fantasy
Where there’s a will- there’s a way
So hold onto your dreams
Is it really hidden
Or well within our sight?
To you it is black as coal
To me it’s snow white

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: havoc - Come On
Come On

I got a lot of what you want
You got what I need
You keep me coming
All night long
I’m gonna make you bleed
Keep it coming baby
Don’t slow down
Come with me
And we’ll tear up the town
Hear me screaming baby in the night
You got my hands tied way too tight
So if you want it tonight
You know it’s waiting for you
Well don’t fight it tonight
There’s nothing you’d rather do

(Chorus)
Come on Come on
Keep me rockin’ tonight
Come on Come on
Keep me rockin’ tonight

Well don’t ya know I’m full of love
I fit your body like a velvet glove
So if you're hungry and want more
I got the key to your door
Keep it coming baby
Don’t slow down
Come with me
And we’ll tear up the town
Hear me screaming baby in the night
You got my hands tied way too tight

So if you want it tonight
You know it’s waiting for you
Well don’t fight it tonight
There’s nothing you’d rather do

Come on Come on
Keep me rockin’ tonight
Come on Come on
Keep me rockin’ tonight
Come on Come on
Keep me rockin’ tonight
Come on Come on
Keep me rockin’ tonight
Track Name: Havoc - Blood Thirsty Bitch
Blood Thirsty Bitch

Alright boys here she comes
Know what you want
You’re gonna get it
You're out for blood
You’re gonna get it tonight
You’re wrapped in leather
I’m wrapped in chains
I got this feeling you must be insane
I must be crazy to want a girl like you
You’ve got your claws in me
I can’t breathe

Blood thirsty bitch
Go for the throat
It’s the kind of feeling that you need
Blood thirsty Bitch

You light your fire, your one desire
You want blood and you're ready to bite
You want some action, deep Satisfaction
Ain’t gonna stop ‘til the first morning light

I must be crazy to want a girl like you
You’ve got your claws in me
I can’t breathe
Blood thirsty bitch
Go for the throat
It’s the kind of feeling that you need
Blood thirsty Bitch

You know what you want, you’re gonna get it
Track Name: Havoc - Yes I'm Evil
Yes I’m Evil

You know what to do
I’m coming for you
And you know who I am
I know that you tried
But there’s nowhere to hide
Cause I’m an evil man

Now it’s clear to me
How it’s got to be
Cause you’ve been lying to me
I’m coming after you

(Chorus)
Yes I’m evil
I know I’m bad
But it works like it never had
Yes I’m evil
I like to see your misery

We made a deal and now
You’ve had your thrill
But you won’t pay what’s due
You took my treasure
So I’ll get my pleasure
In giving pain to you
Now it’s clear to me
How it’s got to be
Cause you’ve been lying to me
I’m coming after you

(Repeat Chorus)
Yes I’m evil, I know I’m bad
But it works like it never had
Yes I’m evil
I like to see your misery
Track Name: Havoc - Loving You
Loving You

I walk the streets alone at night
I feel a fire deep inside
I don’t know what I’m gonna do
My heart, my soul, belongs to you
I love the way you make me feel
When you’re in my arms
I know this love for you is real in my heart

(Chorus)
I feel your body burn inside
When I’m loving you
I know these feelings you can’t hide
When I’m loving you

When I look into your eyes
I feel a fire deep inside
I don’t know what I’m gonna do
My heart, my soul, belongs to you

(Repeat Chorus)
