First connect them so they work.
Then cut either the + wire or the - wire and connect both ends to a switch.

open -> neon off
closed -> ne-ON

a switch has two prongs on the back, put the wire from the power source to one of them, and another wire from the other prong to the neon.

no... 2 prongs

a switch is just something that completes, or breaks the curcuit... there is no ground.

ATTENTION. Make sure that your neons are in a "Parallel" circuit. If they Arent, then they will loose voltage. Here' s an example.

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.
