"Fixed" as written by and Christopher Seligman Amy Millan....
What you want
You are
You always were
What you want
You are
You always were
When the plans fall
Changing hands
What are the chances
Of winning?

You, you hold my heart
You, you won't let up
After when I'm called
Touch turns into fisticuffs
It's all in your head
Wonder if I'm fixed to cut

For its statistics
In the collected whole
We are the hunger
That keeps you climing walls
It's the one thing you can count on
We all end floating away
We all end floating away

You, you hold my heart
You, you won't let up
After when I'm called
Touch turns into fisticuffs
It's all in your head
Wonder if I'm fixed to cut

Is it your fault?
Is it your fault?
Is it your fault?
Is it your fault?
Is it your fault?
Is it your fault?
Is it your fault?
Is it your fault?

You
You're sinking, so they say
You
You're finished, so they say
You
You're buried, so they say
You
I care when caring fades

    My InterpretationKind of reminds me of the sound of M83. Here's an idea of what I think it means. I think it might be a long shot.

    By taking a look at the lyrics I figured this song might be about a person loving someone who hurts them. I can't tell from which perspective it's being told, but this is what I see.

    "You, you hold my heart
    You, you won't let up
    After when I'm called
    Touch turns into fisticuffs
    It's all in your head
    Wonder if I'm fixed to cut"

    So I see this section about the love and it's an interesting play on words because there's both beautiful words that can define love (heart, touch, in your head, fixed), but at the same time there are words that describe hurt and not so beautiful things (won't let up, fisticuffs, cut).

    "We are the hunger
    That keeps you climing walls"
    I think that the hunger here refers to staying even though leaving is a better option, even if you have to suffer (climb walls) to do it.

    "For its statistics
    In the collected whole"
    Before when it says this it means in the bigger scheme of things...
    "It's the one thing you can count on
    We all end floating away
    We all end floating away"
    So it doesn't matter in the end, because everyone has the same fate, so why not stick it out together.

    "Is it your fault?"
    She's asking if it's his fault that she is this way, or if it's love or herself or who?

    Then in the end the last verse... I think it's a monologue. So she's talking to herself saying that it's all over and it doesn't matter anymore. And when she says "I care when caring fades" I think she's reached the point of numbness, where she doesn't feel the pain she only feels the love.

    General CommentTo me this songs is about loving one self before you can love another.

    (what you want, you are, you always were)

    She seems to be clinging to a past love that was passionate but toxic.

    (you hold my heart/touch turns into fisticuffs)

    We have all met that person that makes you feel so alive but is so dangerous to your life. We tend to see that love as our true love and remain forever searching for it.

    I love the image of the words. You can feel the emotions repeating themselves over and over in her head.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the last line is 'A killer killing fate' not 'I care when caring fades'

    General CommentThis one I think goes along with ghostly theme of the album

    I see it that she's a murder victim and it was her fate to be targeted by this killer
    (Wonder if I'm fixed to cut)
    Killers victims are now ghosts that now haunts him keeping him crazy
    (We are the hunger that keeps you climbing walls)
    Amy asks "is it your fault" many think abuse,evil or abandonment can warp one to kill
    Fantastic song!
