"take it on the arches" ie "get the hell outta here"

"just take it on the arches asshole, you're not welcome here."
Take it on the arches means scram or get the hell out of here or leave
Hi,

I haven't heard this expression, but it appears to mean 'leave'. I assume the reference is to the arches of your feet, ie use your feet (to leave).
