"Reflektor" as written by Win Butler, Regine Chassagne, William Butler, Richard R Parry, Jeremy Gara and Tim Kingsbury....
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 les royaumes, 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 I was 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
'Cause 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) Just a reflektor

It’s just a reflektor (It's just a reflektor)

It’s just a reflektor (It's just a reflektor)

It’s just a reflektor (It's just a reflektor)

reflektor (Just a reflektor)
(Just a reflektor) just a reflektor
(Just a reflektor) just a reflektor (reflektor)
(Just a reflektor)
(Just a reflektor)
(Just a reflektor, just a reflektor)
(Just a reflektor, just a reflektor)

Just a reflection, of a reflection
Of a reflection, of a reflection, of a reflection
Will I see you on the other side? (Just a reflektor)
We all got things to hide (Just a reflektor)
It’s just a reflection of a reflection
Of a reflection, of a reflection, of a reflection
Will I see you on the other side? (Just a reflektor)
We all got things to hide (Just a reflektor)

Alright, 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)

It’s just a reflektor

It’s just a reflektor (It's just a reflektor)

It’s just a reflektor (It's just a reflektor)
It’s just a reflektor (It's just a reflektor)

Thought you would bring me to the resurrector
Turns out it was just a reflektor (It’s just a reflektor)
Thought you would bring to me the resurrector
Turns out it was just a reflektor (It’s just a reflektor)
Thought you would bring to me the resurrector
Turns out you were just a reflektor
It’s just a reflektor (It's just a reflektor)
(It's just a reflektor) Just a reflektor

Just a reflektor
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? (reflektor)
We all got things to hide (reflektor)
Just a reflektor
Will I see you on the other side?

    My InterpretationThe Pitchfork review says that the meaning is how art has become more self-reflective/about the artist rather than the observer.
    I think that's one possibility, but I think more about the kind of people who have thousands of friends on Facebook but only are truly friends with a few of them. Technology connects people, but are we really connecting with the person or with the idea of what the connection means to us ("Our love is plastic, we'll break it to bits")? The song seems to argue that connections through technology are impersonal and we end up seeing more of ourselves than of the other person. You think you've found a way to connect, but in reality you're just looking into a mirror. ("We're still connected, but are we even friends?
    We fell in love when I was nineteen
    And I was staring at a screen")
    The "reflective age" is the modern techno-centric society where connections between people are more of this type than of truly trying to find someone. Trapped in our screens (a "prism of light") we're truly alone.

    Dunno if this makes any sense or if I'm just rambling but that's just what I got out of the song.
