Britney Spears - "Kill The Lights" Lyrics

Britney Spears -

One of the tracks off of Britney Spears‘s upcoming album, Circus, has been leaked. The name of the song is “Kill The Lights”, which you can listen to on YouTube.

According to The Sun, the song focuses on the star’s relationship with the paparazzi, the lights referring to flash bulbs. It’s a brilliant disco banger with an elastic bass line and plenty of spooky keyboard work. Here’s how Brit addresses her camera-toting tormentors:

“Kill The Lights” Lyrics

Danja intro – “Ladies and Gentlemen, we interrupt our program of dance music to bring you a special bulletin from the intercontinental radio news. Our very own pop princess, now queen of pop, has a special announcement she would like to make.”

Britney intro – “You’re in. I think I’m ready for my close up. Yeah.”

[Verse 1]
You don’t like me, I don’t like you, it don’t matter (Who?)
Only difference, you still listen, I don’t have to (Who?)
In one ear and out the other, I don’t need you (Who?)
Your words don’t stick, I ain’t perfect, but you ain’t either (Who?)

If your feeling froggy, leap (Oh)
I don’t even lose no sleep (Oh)
There’s more to me than what you see (Oh)
You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry

[Chorus]
Mr. Photographer, I think I’m ready for my close-up (tonight)
Make sure you catch me from my good side (pick one)
These other just wanna be me
Is that money in your pocket or you happy to see me?

Kill the Lights! Take ‘em out, turn ‘em off, break ‘em down.
Kill the Lights! Don’t be scared, make a move, see me now?
Kill the Lights! I’ve seen you, watching me, watching you
Kill the Lights! You can’t handle the truth, what happened to you?

I kill the lights, PURE
the lights, SATIS
the lights, FACTION

I kill the lights, LIGHTS
the lights, CAMERA
the lights, ACTION

[Verse 2]
All the flashing, trying to cash in, hurts my eyes
All the poses, out of focus, I despise
Eff me over, your exposure, not the best
You want me bad, I want you out, release this stress

(Chorus)

[Bridge]
You’re the star now, welcome to the big league
They all want a pic, they all wanna see, see, see
What you’re made of, what you’re gonna do
Is life gonna get the best of you?

(Chorus)

    I can’t wait to her — but i doubt these are real…losers on the net just come up with lyrics and post them randomly. r u sure their officila/??///

  • nickyboy

    yes I have the song on my mp3 player and the song is all over the web, its pretty hot!!! but there is only one lyric that I dispute… “If you’re feeling froggy leap” idk i think in the context of the song it might be ” If You’re Felling Groggily” you know I don’t even lose no sleep.. it makes sense beacuse the word groggy means tired, and grogily is just the adverb form, but we won’t know until the official lyrics are posted on her website or somethin’. THE SONG IS THE SHIT!!!

    “Queen of pop”?! What Madge will say about that?

  • Christy

    #18 : … that Hard Candy sold less than Blackout ? :-p

  • somwhafvedf

    the song sucks shes just riming words that barely make sense

  • Unknown

    New estimates have “Circus” selling between 650K-750K durring the opening week, which would put it in the range of her 3rd and 4th albums which sold 740K and 609K in the their opening weeks. This would mark a big return due to the diminishment of album sales since these albums where released. For example, Justin’s “Future Sex/Love Sounds” sold 684K in the opening week, and you know how big that album was! Also Beyonce’s last album sold 550K opening week. If this album is a #1 hit and a worldwide success, it will ensure that she remains a relevant artist throughout the decades like Madonna, she has already lasted 10 years, most artist last 2-4 years.

  • Jason

    Queen of Pop? Hardly. That title will ALWAYS be owned by Madonna. I love Britney but Madonna is a force of amazing talent, songwritting, performing and a visonary artist. Britney Spears is just a pop Princess that is lucky to work with the right people and make great catchy songs.

    Madonna will always reign as the Queen of Pop and Britney, Rihanna, Janet, Gwen, Kylie, Nelly, Fergie, Christina, Beyonce and Mariah are just her royal diva subjects

  • jilly bena

    Is this song about ADNAN?

  • dialectic

    well life certainly got the best of her now didnt it? daddy needs to get a choke chain,the latest pics of brit have her looking pretty ragged…maybe a return to the days of screwing paps and driving aimlessly for photo ops at rite aid….the song sucks but i cant fault britney for that ..afterall she didnt write it or sing it for that matter…

  • britney_babe

    oh shut up!SONG IS AWESOME!and if u xtina’s fans don’t have anything nice to say,then shut the **** up!I don’t have anything against xtina,but I have against SOME of her fans who are just jelouse of britney’s fantastic comeback!THIS SONG ROX!SO DOES BRITNEY!I’M BUYING CIRCUS! LOVE U BRIT!

    BIG KISS FROM CROATIA!

    p.s.-can’t wait for you’re world tour =)

  • Tha

    queen of pop? na- ah, no she didnt!
    this is gonna cause lots of drama.

    bleh.. the song is nothing special.. not half as good as womanizer

  • Jessica

    What dreck. Awful.

  • gina
  • betduke

    Kill the Song and the Messenger. A song with no substance to rot the brain. She is no longer relevant.

  • Ginger

    STUPID SONG!! STUPID LYRICS!!!

    In the song she doesn’t care about the paparazis but yet she’s freaken SINGS about them? WASF!!!! She’s totally stupid and a hypocrite with all these dumb lyrics…

    I hate all her songs that she sings about the press and herself!! We don’t freaken live your life so sing songs that we can relate to…

    When I first read the lyrics, I was like wow! I like these lyrics and then when it got to “Mr, Photographer”, I was like, “The phaw-ken HELL??!?!”

    I can’t relate to this kind of garbage that she sings about…. I’m not buying her album. I bought her first one and the 2nd one. After that, all the songs she wrote about are not significant to the majority of the listeners so I stopped buying it…

    Write some shiiet that the general people can relate to..

    If the lyrics were different as if she was singing to a guy, it would be bad a$s!! But this song suk-rotten-a$s!!

  • john

  • eric

    She can’t sing. Her music has always sucked. Has no talent whatsoever. And acts and looks like white trash in real life. I do not get why people act like she is so great and worship her. And now they love her even more just because she turned into a drug addicted trainwreck and you feel sorry for her. I think we should be rewarding people with actual talent not the ones that made it off image and that you feel sorry for because you want to root for the underdog.

  • sad

    She is a LOST SOUL with big bank account because she has a fan base that continues to buy her craptastic music.

  • X

    She will NEVER be an “artrist” like Madonna, Annie Lennox, Bjork, Xtina, Janet or Lady Gaga. She is a pop star for sure, but will never have integrity as an artist.

  • Megan fox rocks

    awesome song

  • music critic

    ahh.. all of you that say she will never be a madonna, or some crap just shutup..

    madonna’s fame was from the late 80′s to 90′s ok
    britney spears owns late 90′s til present day.
    she has had many hits.
    she has had her ups and downs
    but songs like womanizer and kill the lights show that
    she can make a solid comeback, she has talent, shes a excellent performer,

    dont get her personal life mixed with her professional music career, you have to judge them differently because if you judge them together then you probably dont like many singers / celebrities.

    good job britney spears

    hip hop / rap is a dissapointment because of people like tpain and lil wayne

    im glad a artist like you can keep pop music alive with good beats catchy lyrics and dance – club friendly songs.

  • http://sasha1444@mail.ru sasha

    Best song ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • MIRIAM

    i love robert pattinson <3

  • gentleman

    hahaha
    so many people don’t accept that she is back!
    She is hot, the cover is hot and the song is much better thn womanizer!

    *laugh at britney-haters and jealous christina-fans*

  • remember the truth

    To all the people in denial saying she is “no longer relevant” (LOL), commenting on a leaked song (which has thousands upon thousands of views on each and every one of it’s youtube videos) only proves the irony in your statement and how FALSE it truely is.
    I’m sure a proper excuse would be “Ohhhhhh, but people are curious, so of course they’re gonna view a leaked song from Britney”. That’s the point, and that’s what makes her RELEVANT. Not to mention the simple fact that Womanizer is a huge hit around the globe. Just in North America alone, it went to no.1# for 2 weeks on the U.S. Billboard and no.1# for 4 weeks in Canada’s Billboard. It seems people have always have A LOT to say (good or bad) for a person who is no longer “relevant”, now do they?

    Love her or hate her, Britney is one of the most interesting and non-boring celebrities there has been in a decade ever since she arrived on the scene….and that’s when she’s doing all the right and all the wrong. To still reach the level of success she has after going through everything she went through, there’s no denying the power, interest and complexity of this woman.

    BTW, I think the song rocks – Danja is great with her and always provides this dark tone to his music when it comes to Britney. His team ups with her are like the team ups between Timbaland/Timberlake, only better. And this isn’t the mastered version of the song. The finished, mastered track sounds much better ;)

  • andré

    i don’t get why people keep on calling other ones “white trash”.
    get a life.

  • http://justjared.buzznet.com/2008/11/08/britney-spears-kill-the-lights-lyrics/comment-page-2/#comments Henry

    haha, a lot of people here are saying they hate the song and her music nd everything related to her, yeah right, that’s why you’re commenting on an artist you don’t even like. And besides, she couldn’t have said it better in this song, it goes to the haters more than the paps. ” you don’t like me, I don’t like you it don’t matter, ONLY DIFFERENCE YOU STILL LISTEN I DON’T HAVE TO” so if you don’t like it, don’t listen, if you do, suck it up and stop b*tching about it.

  • Brie2009

    I like this song but it isnt as good as womanizer.

  • Reza cody

    This song is amazing!
    i had to listen to it twice to really like it.
    its like a 100x better version of piece of me…but shes like taking charge!
    it has a great beat and her voice is hardly played with so it sounds REALLY GOOD!

  • wilp

    awesome song, i love it. A lot better than Womanizer. that was just too pop-y (plus her vocals? FAR too low) and it was a step back from Blackout, but this is a return to form. This is gonna be a major club song for winter.

    wait, is it her next single?
