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 alive
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 time is slow
I say take me out

I say you don't know
You say you don't go
I say take me out

If I move this could this could die
If eyes move this could 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
With you

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

If I move this could die
If eyes move this could die
Come on
Take me out

I know I won't be leaving here
With you

I know I won't be leaving here
With you

I know I won't be leaving here
With you

I know I won't be leaving here
With you

    I believe I read that this song is about the actual assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, as he laid next to his dying wife. Basically, he doesn't want his wife to leave him and he wants to die himself so that they can be together after death.
    It certainly makes this song a much more depressing one, despite its upbeat tempo.

    To further continue my idea, I believe the song is talking about a relationship that is taken for granted. The speaker is aware that he's being mistreated but he can't do anything about it because he likes the relationship and can't force himself to dislike it even though he is aware that he's being taken advantage of.

    The first lines, "if you're lonely, you know I'll be here waiting for you," really stands out. I think it means that the speaker believes the person he is addressing is taking advantage of him and treats the speaker as a last resort when he or she is bored.

    I usually try to find a good meaning that makes sense but this song is just bluddy epic, it has a great beat, bout nothing in particular, just fabbo.
