Danja Intro [Radio News Break]:
"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
Only difference, you still listen, I don't have to
In one ear and, out the other, I don't need you
Your words don't stick, I ain't perfect, but you ain't either

If your feeling froggy, leap
I ain't even losin' no sleep
There's more to me than what you see
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 are 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 light, the lights, the lights. (Pure Satisfaction)
I kill! The light, the lights, the lights. (Lights, Camera, Action)
I kill! The light, the lights, the lights. (Pure Satisfaction)
I kill! The light, the lights, the lights. (Lights, Camera, Action)

All the flashin', tryin' to cash-in, hurts my eyes
All the poses, out of focus, I despise
Effed me over, your exposure, not the best
You want me bad, watch me while I 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 are 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 light, the lights, the lights. (Pure Satisfaction)
I kill! The light, the lights, the lights. (Lights, Camera, Action)
I kill! The light, the lights, the lights. (Pure Satisfaction)
I kill! The light, the lights, the lights. (Lights, Camera, Action)

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?

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 light, the lights, the lights. (Pure Satisfaction)
I kill! The light, the lights, the lights. (Lights, Camera, Action)
I kill! The light, the lights, the lights. (Pure Satisfaction)
I kill! The light, the lights, the lights. (Lights, Camera, Action)

Yeaaaaaaah...
Yeaaaaaaah...
Yeaaaaaaah...
Yeaaah.

    Clearly this song is about the paparazzi and the hell they made (and still make) her life... "all the flashing trying to cash in hurts my eyes" sums it up pretty well, if you've seen how they crowd her and shove their cameras in her face, you'll see why she got to the stage she did (and why she wears sunglasses indoors etc). The line "they all want to see what you're made of" also illustrates the vicious nature of the tabloid industry and how they push people over the edge and then wonder why it happened.
    One of the best songs I've heard from Britney.

    This song is awsome. We're doing it in dance class. I wish people would give the poor girl a break once in a while she creates some enjoyable music.

    This song is purely about sex, because in the dark no one can see what you're doing, I love Britney, but this isn't my favorite by her in the album.
