"Kill The Lights" as written by Marcella Christina Araica, Nate Hills, James Washington and Luke Boyd....
"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 will like to make"

You're on,
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 ain't even losin' 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 (ha) just wanna be me
Is that money in your pocket?
Or you happy to see me?

[Chorus]
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 feel 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
I kill
The lights pure
The lights satis
The lights faction
I kill
The lights lights
The lights camera
The lights action

All the flashin', tryin' 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.

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?

[Chorus]

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]

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentI think it's about the paparazzi like gettin all up in her bizz, and she's just shaking her head saying all the flashing annoys the crap out of her and that they're just dumbheads.

    General CommentWhen she says "kill the lights", it has a double meaning. She's referring to both, a photo shoot ("Mr Photographer, I think I'm ready for my close up.") and sex ("pure satisfaction."). May also be referring to a porno ("Lights, camera, action.") The rest sounds like she's careless and does her own thing regardless of what people say/think/do.

    General CommentI LOVE IT BUT I CHANGED THE LYRICS TO BE ABOUT MY BOYFRIENDS EX CAUSE SHES DRAGGIN US TO COURT CAUSE SHE IS TRYING TO GET MY MONEY TO FEED HER KIDS AS PART OF HIS PAYMENT FOR HIS KID

    SO I SING "I THINK U FUCKED UP "WEEP"
    ITS OK I AINT EVEN LOSIN SLEEP"

    AND I CHANGED IT TO "IF THERES MONEY IN MY POCKET U WOULD BE HAPPY TO STEAL IT"
    AND I SAY "U WANT ME DEAD I WANT U GONE SO I RELEASE THIS STRESS"

    AND "IM THE STAR HERE WELCOME TO THE BIG LEAUGE"

    CAUSE SHE TRYS TO GET US IN TROUBLE BY SUEING US AND WE DONT LIVE NEAR HER AND HAVNT SEEN HER IN 5 YEARS AND SHE TRYS TO PLAY GAMES SO ITS MY SONG ABOUT MAKING HER LOOK LIKE A FOOL CAUSE SHE'S TRYING TO MAKE ME LOOK LIKE ONE BUT ITS REALLY JUST MESSEN HER HEAD UP ....HA HA
