Check around brake pedal for something rubbing. If OK, I'd look into the master cylinder.

More than likely, your brake switch is fused, or stuck down.... here. when you push on the brake, the pedal taps a button to indicate that the brakes have been pressed. this button is a gate to the power provided to the tail lights, therefore, when it is pressed, they light up. this button could be stuck. disconnect the harness and see if the lights go off. if they do, replace the switch.
