about

In Propria Persona is the first full length album from Portland artist reakt[ion]. Blending musical influences from industrial, hip-hop, post-hardcore, and black metal, In Propria Persona represents reakt[ion]'s attempt to move even further from the harsh EBM tropes of his early releases into a sound that is both familiar and unfamiliar at the same time.

Press:
"Everyone . . . who ever scoffed at aggrotech as an aesthetic which quickly painted itself into a corner would do well to see what new sounds and moods reakt[ion]‘s able to retrofit from it’s acid-etched frame." - I Die: You Die

Track Name: Another Kind
I used to dream of running through the canopies
I used to believe I was something more
Back then I knew that I was special
Chasing beasts across the forest's floor

I was an other kind of being
I was living in a fantasy
I thought that I had awakened
As I slipped into a new dream
Track Name: This Smile Is My Mask
I hide my fear
I pretend it doesn't exist
It gets suppressed
Under a veil of self confidence

But I want to scream
I want to let it all fall apart
And I want to scream
I want to show you how hard it is
To play this role

I hide my fear
I tell myself it will be fine
In a cold sweat
My thoughts right wild through the night

And I want to scream
I want to let it all fall apart
And I want to scream
I want to show you how hard it is
To play this role

I want to show you that this smile is a
mask that I wear
That inside me there is a font
overflowing with fear

And I want to scream
I want to let it all fall apart
And I want to scream
I want to show you how hard it is
To play this role
Track Name: A Time Divide (Feat. Michael [product])
You sit
Day by day
As the sun sets for
another world beyond
the window and the pain
Of the light you've come
Far enough for one time
You fight
Every time you cry
And deny that you
Are worthy in this life
You just tear off
the walls and deny
To touch another


As you cross beyond
The world becomes you
As you cross beyond
Apollo on your throne
As you cross beyond
All the hands you've held
As you cross beyond
Become nothing

You become
One with the mirror
Casting shadows
and calling them reflections
Of the past
Of tradition
You're a slave
To the words of the written
As you fight
it becomes a crime
To lie in a field
And just feel
yourself die
Only a little
The world is blind

As you cross beyond
The great divide - your life
As you cross beyond
The path of the right
As you cross beyond
You will see yourself
As you cross beyond
Becoming nothing


I'm just passing along
Waiting for something
to call my name Again
I'm just crossing the line
Fading from mind
Crossing to anyone
Track Name: The Last Regret You'll Ever Have
I want this life to mean something
I want there to be a point
I looked for answers in all the wrong places
And there was nothing to find

I step to the ledge
As my screams echo of the face of the cliffs
I step to the ledge
And I stare out into the abyss

The wind rushing by is deafening
I can feel the pull of the earth below
As rocks turn red and the lights go out
I want to scream
What Have I Done?

What Have I Done?
Track Name: And The Song Is The Same
I keep singing the same old song
And I've been sing it for far too long
I hope these words wouldn't find me again
Spilling like poison from the tip of my pen

I thought that I was happy
I thought that I had escaped
I thought that I could be happy
But it seems this dark clouds will never clear

I keep singing the same old song
And I've been sing it for far too long
I hope these words wouldn't find me again
Spilling like poison from the tip of my pen
Track Name: Whispers In The Dark
I hear the whispers in the dark
As the walls close in
I feel my breath
Drawing Short
I can feel a heat in me
A fire inside
Burning away
My Fear

I know what I am
A Speck
Insignificant
I know what I am
And I'm the only one who can change it

This is the only life you get
So live it
This is the only life you get
There's no tomorrow
There's no tomorrow

I know what I am
A Speck
Insignificant
I know what I am
And I'm the only one who can change it
Track Name: Sins of the Father, Blood of the Son
Do you know the pain that you caused
When you tore our family apart
You left a whole in our hearts
And that emptiness terrifies me

I am awash in your blood
The sins of the father become the sins of
The Son
And I fear I cannot escape that fate
I am awash in the tears
In the valley of pain that you left in your wake
And I fear it will be my pain to repeat

Are you even sorry
For the things that you've done
You tore our world apart
And you left us there to rot

I am awash in your blood
The sins of the father become the sins of
The Son
And I fear I cannot escape that fate
I am awash in the tears
In the valley of pain that you left in your wake
And I fear it will be my pain to repeat
Track Name: Gilded Road
Show me no mercy
Show me no fear
Show me the pain that I have caused you
Show me no idols
Show me no gods
Show me the monster that I've become

I tore this world asunder
I destroyed all that I had gained
This road is gilded with my selfishness
So make my sorrow your refrain

Show me no kindness
Show me no care
Show me that which I deserve
Show me suffering
Show me your hate
Show me the path I was supposed to take

I tore this world asunder
I destroyed all that I had gained
This road is gilded with my selfishness
So make my sorrow your refrain
Track Name: Seasons
You said you'd follow me to the end
When leaves change and the snow falls
You said we could have anything
And I wanted it all

I thought the spring was so beautiful
The leaves were wet and we were new
How quickly things change in the summers light
I knew it was to good to be true

You said you'd follow me to the end
The leaves are gone and so are you
The wind bites at my face, I am so cold
and all I wanted was...

You said you'd follow me to the end
When leaves change and the snow falls
You said we could have anything
And I wanted it all
