Reflektor Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Reflektor

Trapped in a prism, in a prism of light
Alone in the darkness, darkness of white
We fell in love, alone on a stage
In the reflective age

Entre la nuit, la nuit et l'aurore
Entre le royaume, des vivants et des morts
If this is heaven
I don't know what it's for
If I can't find you there
I don't care

I thought I found a way to enter
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)
I thought I found the connector
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)

Now, the signals we send, are deflected again
We're still connected, but are we even friends?
We fell in love when I was nineteen
And now we're staring at a screen

Entre la nuit, la nuit et l'aurore
Entre les voyants, les vivants et les morts
If this is heaven
I need something more
Just a place to be alone
Because you're my home

I thought I found a way to enter
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)
I thought I found the connector
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)

It's just a reflection of a reflection
Of a reflection of a reflection
Will I see you on the other side?
We all got things to hide
It's just a reflection of a reflection
Of a reflection of a reflection
Will I see you on the other side?
We all got things to hide

All right, let's go back
Our song escapes on little silver discs
Our love is plastic, we'll break it to bits
I want to break free, but will they break me?
Down, down, down
Don't mess around

I thought I found a way to enter
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)
I thought I found the connector
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)

Thought you were praying to the resurrector
Turns out it was just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)
Thought you were praying to the resurrector
Turns out it was just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)
Thought you were praying to the resurrector
Turns out it was just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)

It's a Reflektor
It's just a Reflektor
Just a Reflektor
Will I see you on the other side?
It's just a Reflektor
Will I see you on the other side?
We all got things to hide
It's just a Reflektor
Will I see you on the other side?

We Exist

Walking around head full of sound
Acting like we don't exist
Walk in a room stare out through you
Talking like we don't exist

But we exist

Daddy it's true, I'm different from you
But tell me why they treat me like this?
You turn away, what could I say
Not the first betrayed by a kiss

Maybe it's true
They're staring at you
When you walk in a room

Turn on us fine
Stare if you like
Or just let us through
Just let us through

Down on your knees
Begging us please
Praying that we don't exist

Daddy it's fine, I'm used to them now
But tell me why they treat me like this?
Is it because we do it like this?

Maybe it's true
They're staring at you
When you walk in a room

Turn on us fine
Stare if you like
Or just let us through
Just let us through

Let them stare
Let them stare
That's all right with you

But lose myself
If it turn away from you

Daddy told him to wait
Mother, I'm so scared
But will you watch us drown?
You know that they will

You know that we're young
You know that we're confused
But will you watch us drown?
What are you so afraid to lose?

Down on their knees
Begging us please
Praying that we don't exist

We exist

Flashbulb Eyes

[Verse]
What if the camera
Really do
Take your soul
Oh no
What if the camera
Really do
Take your soul
Oh no

[Chorus]
Hit me with your flashbulb eyes!
Hit me with your flashbulb eyes!
You know I've got nothing to hide
You know I got nothing
No I got... nothing

[Verse]

[Chorus x2]

Here Comes The Night Time

When the sun goes down,
When the sun goes down you head inside
Because the lights don't work,
Nothing works but you don't mind

Here comes the night time

The missionaries tell us we will be left behind
Been left behind a thousand times, a thousand times
If you want to be righteous, if you want to be righteous
Get in line
Here comes the night time

Here comes the night time
Look out, here comes the night time
Now here comes the night
Here comes the night
Look out here comes the night time

They say heaven's a place, yeah heaven's a place
And they know where it is,
But you know where it is?
It's behind the gate, they won't let you in
When they hear the beat coming from the street the lock the door,
If there's no music up in heaven then what's it for?
When I hear the beat, my spirit's on like a live wire
A thousand horses running wild in a city on fire
It starts in your feet, then it goes to your head
And if you can feel it, then the rules are dead
And if you're the judge, then what is our crime?
Here comes the night time.

Now the preachers they talk
[?]
If you're looking for hell, just try looking inside

When you look in the sky, just try looking inside
God knows what you might find
Here comes the night time

Normal Person

Is anything as strange as a normal person?
Is anyone as cruel as a normal person?
Waiting after school, you want to know if you're normal too
Well, are you?

I'm so confused, am I a normal person?
You know, I can't tell if I'm a normal person, it's true
I think I'm cool enough, but am I cruel enough...
Am I cruel enough... for you?

Break it down until everything is normal now
I know

Take their tea at two, all the normal people, they do
They burned the jungle down, while you were sleeping it grew
You dream in English now, in proper English
Look how you're just the same as me
It's through!

If that's what's normal now, I don't want to know!
Mama, don't make me go!

When they get excited they try to hide it (...No!)
Look at those normals go!

If that's what's normal now, I don't want to know
If that's what's normal now...

Maybe if you have together, you can make the changes in our hearts
And if you hang together, you can change us, just where should you start?

I've never really ever met a normal person (...like you)

How do you do?

You Already Know

[Intro sample]
Arcade Fire!

[Verse 1]
Sometimes it moves so fast
Sometimes it moves so fast
If you stop to ask
It's already passed
So how can you move so slow?
How can you move so slow?
You miss it if you don't
You miss it if you

[Chorus]
Don't already know
Already know
Already know
Already know
Already know

[Verse 2]
When your love is right
When your love is right
You can't sleep at night
You've been sleeping just fine
But when your love is bad
When your love is bad
I don't know why you're so sad
But it's time to go

[Chorus]
You already know
Already know
You already know
You already know
You already know
You already know
Already know

[Verse 3]
Sometimes it moves so fast
Sometimes it moves so fast
If you stop to ask
It's already passed
So how can you move so slow?
How can you move so slow?
You missed it, you know
You missed it

[Chorus]
You already know
Already know
You already know
You already know

[Bridge]
Please stop wondering why you feel so bad
When you already know
(Already know)
Please stop wondering why you feel so sad
When you already know
(Already know)
Please stop wondering why you feel so bad
When you already know
(Already know)
Please stop wondering why you feel so sad
When you already know
(Already know)

[Outro]
You already know
Oh, it's time to go

She said
"Well how do I know
When I know
When I know?"
(You already know)

Well then he said
"Well how do I know
When I know
When I know?"
(You already know)

She said
"Well how do I know
When I know
When I know?"...

[Outro sample]
Haha, haha
Arcade Fire, ladies and gentlemen!

Joan Of Arc

You're the one that they used to hate
But they like you now
And everything that goes away
Will be returned somehow
They're the ones that spit on you
Cause they got no heart
I'm the one that will follow you
You're my Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc

You had a vision they couldn't see so
They put you down
But everything that you said would happen
It came around
And they're the ones that put you down
Cause they got no heart
But I'm the one that will follow you
You're my Joan of Arc

[Chorus 1]
Joan of Arc (Jeanne d'Arc)
Tell the boys their time is through
Joan of Arc (Jeanne d'Arc, ah ooh)
Tell the boys I'll follow you
I'll follow you

Now they tell you that you're their muse
Yeah, they're so inspired
But where were they when they called your name
And they lit the fire?
When the voices came, you cut your hair
But you're still confused
But I'm the one with a heavy heart
Cause I'll follow you

[Chorus 2]
My Joan of Arc (Jeanne d'Arc, ah ooh)
Tell the boys their time is through
Joan of Arc (Jeanne d'Arc, ah ooh)
Tell the boys I'll follow you
Joan of Arc (Jeanne d'Arc, ah ooh)
When the boys are over you
Joan of Arc (Jeanne d'Arc, ah ooh)
Tell the boys I'll follow you
I'll follow you

I really wanna know you

[Regine Chassagne]
Tu dis que tu est mon juge
Mais je ne te crois pas
Alors tu dis que je suis une sainte
Mais ce n'est pas moi
J'entends des voix
Mais ce n'est pas moi
Je ne suis pas Jeanne d'Arc
And if you shoot you better hit your mark

[Chorus 2]

Joan, it's true
I only wanna know you
Joan, it's true, it's true
I only wanna know you
But Joan
I only wanna know you

First they love you
Then they kill you
Then they love you again
And then they love you
Then they kill you
Then they love you again
Love love love you
Kill kill kill you
And then they love you again
They love love love you
Kill kill kill you
And then they love you again

Here Comes The Night Time II

Here comes the night time

I hurt myself again
So low we go, my friends
Feels like it never ends
Here comes the night again

Here comes the night time

You hurt yourself again
How low we go, my friends
Feels like it never ends
Here comes the night again

Here comes the night time coming on slow
Here comes the night time, I know that you know
Here comes the night time

Well, I hurt myself again
How low we go, my friends
Feels like it never ends
Here comes the night again

Here comes the night time

Awful Sound (Oh Eurydice)

You and I were born in a little town
Before the awful sound started coming down
Oh no, oh

You came home from school and knew you had to run
Please stop running now, just let me be the one for you
I know you can see things that we can't see
But when I say I love you, your silence covers me
Oh, Eurydice, it's an awful sound

I was so disappointed you didn't want me
Oh, how could it be, Eurydice?
I was standing beside you by a frozen sea
Will you ever get free?

Just take all your pain, just put it on me
So that you can breathe
When you fly away will you hit the ground?
It's an awful sound

I know there's a way, we can make them pay
Think it over and say, "I'm never going back again"
I know there's a way, we can leave today
Think it over and say, "I'm never going back again"

You were born in the little town
Before the awful sound started coming down
There's so much inside you that you won't let me see
You fly away from me, but it's an awful sound when you hit the ground
It's an awful sound when you hit the ground

I know there's a way, we can make them pay
Think it over and say, "I'm never going back again"
I know there's a way, we can leave today
Think it over

We know there's a price to pay for love in a reflective age
I met you up upon a stage, our love in a reflective age
Oh no, now you're gone

It's Never Over (Oh Orpheus)

Hey, Orpheus!
I'm behind you
Don't turn around
I can find you

Just wait until it's over
Wait until it's through
And if I call for you
Oh, Orpheus!
Just sing for me all night
We'll wait until it's over
Wait until it's through

You say it's not me, it's you

Hey, Orpheus!
De l'autre côté de l'eau
Comme un écho
Just wait until it's over
Wait until it's through

And if I shout for you
Never doubt
Don't turn around too soon
Just wait until it's over
Wait until it's through

It seems so important now
But you will get over
It seems so important now
But you will get over
And when you get over
When you get older
Then you will remember
Why it was so important then

Seems like a big deal now
But you will get over
Seems like a big deal now
But you will get over
When you get over
And when you get older
Then you will discover
That it's never over

Hey, Eurydice!
Can you see me?
I will sing your name
Till you're sick of me
Just wait until it's over
Just wait until it's through

But if you call for me
This frozen sea
It melts beneath me
Just wait until it's over
Wait until it's through

Seems like a big deal now
But you will get over
Seems like a big deal now
But you will get over
And when you get over
And when you get older
Then you will remember

He told you he'd wake you up
When it was over
He told you he'd wake you up
When it was over
Now that it's over
Now that you're older
Then you will discover
That it's never over

It's never over (it's never over) [8x]

Sometime (Sometime)
Sometime (Sometime)
Boy, they're gonna eat you alive (eat you alive)
But it's never gonna happen now
We'll figure it out somehow

Sometime (Sometime)
Sometime (Sometime)
Boy, they're gonna eat you alive (eat you alive)
But it's never gonna happen now
We'll figure it out somehow

Cause it's never over
It's never over (it's never over) [6x]

We stood beside
A frozen sea
I saw you out
In front of me
Reflected light
A hollow moon
Oh Orphes, Eurydice
Its over too soon

Porno

Take the makeup off your eyes
I've got to see you, hear your sacred sighs
Before the break up, comes the silence
I'm talking to you. You say you're over it,
But I know

I thought I knew you. You thought you knew me
But now that you do, it's not so easy now
That I know

You can cry; I won't go. You can scream; I won't go
Every man that you know would have run at the word go
Little boys with their porno, oh, I know they hurt you so
They don't know what we know. Never know what we know

And all your makeup, just take it all off
I've got to find you before the line is lost
I know I hurt you, I won't deny it
When I reach for you, you say, "I'm over it."
But I know

You can cry; I won't go. You can scream; I won't go
Every man that you know would have run at the word go
Little boys with their porno, oh, I know they hurt you so
They don't know what I know. It's so little that we know
But the cup it overflows. Little boys with their porno
This is their world, where can we go?

Makes me feel like something's wrong with me
Makes me feel like something's wrong with me
Can you see me?

You can cry; I won't go. You can scream; I won't go
Little boys with their porno. Little boys with their porno
Makes me feel like something's wrong. It's the only world we know
Yeah, something's wrong. Little boys with their porno

And boys they learn some selfish shit until the girl won't put up with it
On and on and on we go. I just have to know. I'm not over it
I'm not over it

So love is real like a disease.
Come on tell me please,
I'm not over it
I'm not over it

Afterlife

Afterlife. Oh my God, what an awful word
After all the breath and the dirt and the fires are burnt.
And after all this time, and after all the ambulances go
And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on in the dead lights
Of the afterglowI've gotta know... Can we work it out?
If we scream and shout 'till we work it out
Can we just work it out?
Scream and shout 'till we work it out
'till we work it out, 'till we work it out
'till we work it out, 'till we work it out

Afterlife. I think I saw what happens next
Oh, it was just a glimpse of you, like looking through a window
Or a shallow sea
Could you see me?
And after all this time
It's like nothing else we used to know
And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on in the dead lights
Of the afterglow

I've gotta know...

Can we work it out?
If we scream and shout 'till we work it out
Can we just work it out?
Scream and shout 'till we work it out?

But you say "Oh, when love is gone
Where does it go?"
And you say
"Oh, when love is gone
Where does it go?"
And where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?
Where do we go?

And after this
Can it last another night?
After all the bad advice
That had nothing at all to do with life

I've gotta know

Can we work it out?
If we scream and shout 'till we work it out
Can we just work it out?
Scream and shout 'till we work it out?

But you say
"Oh, when love is gone
Where does it go?"
And you say
"Oh, when love is gone
Where does it go?"
We know it's gone
But where did it go?
And where do we go?

Is this the afterlife?
It's just an afterlife with you.
It's just an afterlife.
It's just an afterlife.
It's just an afterlife with you.
It's just an afterlife.
It's just an afterlife.
