Post Wiring Tail Lights & Turn Signals

Help me out here, will ya? I'm confused.
<img src="graemlins/crash.gif" border="0" alt="[crash]" />

I've got 4 lights at the back of my truck :
A.) 2 red lights that work as my brake lights and tail ights (always on when my headlights are on) ... and ...
B.) 2 amber lights (set in my tail gate) that operate as my turn signals (on when turn signal is applied only).

I'm looking at my EZ-Wire kit diagram, regarding the Park lights and Turn signals, and they are only showing the wiring procedure for TWO rear lights.

Their diagram indicates the use of 3 wires :
1.) Brown - "Park" ... goes to each of the two tail lights and also to the license plate light.

2.) Green - "Right Rear Turn" ... goes to the right tail light.

3.) Yellow - "Left Rear Turn" ... goes to the left tail light.

Obviously, they don't bother mentioning a wire that would be coming from my Brake Switch ... am I right?

Can someone give me a clarification on how I should be wiring my 4 lights properly?

THANKS.
