"Take Me Out" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
So if you're lonely
You know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a cross hair
I'm just a shot away from you
And if you leave here
You leave me broken, shattered, I lie
I'm just a cross hair
I'm just a shot, then we can die

I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say don't you know
You say you don't know
I say, take me out!

I say you don't show
Don't move, tide is low
I say, take me out!

I say you don't know
You say you don't know
I say, take me out!

If I move this could die
Eyes move this can die
I want you to take me out

I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say don't you know
You say you don't know
I say, take me out!

If I wane this could die
I wait this could die
I want you to take me out

If I move this could die
Eyes move this can die
Come on, take me out

I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here with you

    General CommentSaw them live recently- before they played it, they explained it.

    'Franz Ferdinand' are named after the guy who was shot, a minor incident in Eastern Europe that lead to the outbreak of World War 1. Ferdinand and his wife were shot at the same time; the song talks about the moment between his wife being shot and him dying- he feels he might as well be dead, "Come on, take me out!", his wife's murders have left him 'broken, shattered I lie'.

    A very melancholy for such a upbeat song with such a funky riff.
