Britney Spears - "Kill The Lights" Lyrics
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.”
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
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
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
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?
