Doe it mean the same as "Take on your enemies" in this question?
Or does it mean to confront me as an enemy?

I can't figure out the meaning even from the context of the whole song...

Update: After reading the lyric again, I am not sure what "Take me on" means as well...

Full lyric. enter image description here

    Why don't you post some context, like some lyrics... Or do you want us to do the work of asking the question as well as answering it? – user6951 Feb 23 '15 at 18:24
  • I guess it was my mistake thinking that everyone knew the song... I will post the lyric. – dance2die Feb 23 '15 at 19:33

    I think interpretation of song lyrics is Off Topic. And as I native speaker I have to say I've got absolutely no idea what if anything take on me is supposed to mean there. – FumbleFingers Feb 23 '15 at 20:55

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because song lyrics do not necessarily adhere to standard word meanings, uses, or even forms, and so there is no definitive way to know whether a particular lyric has a particular intended meaning or if it is merely gibberish chosen because it sounds interesting to the lyricist. – choster Feb 23 '15 at 21:45

    Sounds good. As for the alternating of "take me on" and "take on me", I theorize that these three young Norwegians in London were amused at how one can literally "turn a phrase" inside out just for fun. – Brian Hitchcock Feb 24 '15 at 9:45
