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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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)

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.
