BackgroundEdit

Via her social media, Blackery announced “Take Me Out” to be the fourth single from the album. The song was then released on August 10, 2018. Emma said:

"Take Me Out is a song that deals with feelings of paranoia and isolation after yet another person burns you. What do people really think of me? Who's going to be the next person to leave? Why bother having trust at all? Why bother making friends? How are you going to take me out?"
Emma also talks about the song in her “I Haven’t Been Honest.” video.

On the back of the vinyl album artwork, the tracklist has little messages explaining what each song is directed towards. This song is: ‘For The Suspected.’

LyricsEdit

I keep my head down
Won't speak unless I'm spoken to now
I've learned my lesson
They twist and turn your words into a sound
You didn't pronounce

Next time you see me
I won't let my hair down
So you can climb up
And pull me out

I'm lurking in the shadows
Biding my time
What you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
To try and take me

Out
You are the liar
I am the fire
Out
How you gonna take me?
Out
You are the liar
I am the fire
Out

I put these walls up
Questioning the motives of my friends
They can't be trusted
I'm finding I'm the only one I have

Next time you see me
I won't stop to say hello
Cos I know what you want
And I know what I'm in for, yes

I'm lurking in the shadows
Biding my time
What you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
What you gonna do to take me

Out
You are the liar
I am the fire
Out
How you gonna take me?
Out
You are the liar
I am the fire
Out

I see you whispering
What are they're saying?
What are you playing at?
King of the castle
Made out of cardboard
I'll be the big bad wolf
I'm gonna take you out

Out
You are the liar
I am the fire
Out
How you gonna take me?
Out
You are the liar
I am the fire
Out
How you gonna take me?
Out
You are the liar
I am the fire
Out
How you gonna take me?
Out
You are the liar
I am the fire
Out
How you gonna take me?
