"Fix Me" as written by and Dave Richard/hasek Bassett....
It's taken a lifetime to lose my way
A lifetime of yesterdays
All the wasted time on my hands
Turns to sand
And fades in the wind
Crossing lines
Small crimes
Taking back what is mine

I'm fine in the fire
I feed on the friction
I'm right where I should be
Don't try and fix me
I'm fine in the fire
I feed on the friction
I'm right where I should be
Don't try and fix me

So lost for so long
To find to my way
I failed to follow
I'm out of place
Crossing lines
Small crimes
Taking back what is mine

I'm fine in the fire
I feed on the friction
I'm right where I should be
Don't try and fix me

I'm fine in the fire
I feed on the friction
I'm right where I should be
Don't try and fix me

I'm fine in the fire
I feed on the friction
I'm right where I should be
Don't try and fix me

I'm fine in the fire
I feed on the friction
I'm right where I should be
Don't try and fix me

I'm fine in the fire
I feed on the friction
I'm right where I should be
Don't try and fix me

I'm fine in the fire
I feed on the friction
I'm right where I should be
Don't try and fix me

    My InterpretationThis song reminds me of myself actually, which is why I came with this understanding of it. I've wasted so much time being somebody who I'm not, but you know what? Screw it now, I'm not going to be this fake persona. I'm going to be me, whether I like it or not. I'm fine with you throwing rude comments at me, in fact I enjoy it. I'm right where I should be in life and whatever you can call it. This is who I am, and "don't try and fix me."

    I should sing this song out loud one day in school. :)

    My InterpretationThis sounds like a very spiritual song to me...

    What I am hearing is from the point of view of someone who has wasted their life/time on things that don't matter during their time here on earth...

    "A lifetime of yesterdays
    All the wasted time on my hands
    Turns to sand and fades in the wind"

    All their life they had been lost

    "It's taken a lifetime to lose my way"
    "So lost for so long"

    This has led him to a place where he is alone and away from the ones he should be with

    "To find my way,
    I failed to follow
    I’m out of place"

    Specifically, they are in/heading to hell and feed on the sin and temptations that have presented themselves to him.

    "I’m fine in the fire
    I feed on the friction
    I’m right where I should be
    Don’t try and fix me"

    That last line sounds to me like it is coming from a point of view of someone who is just being ignorant and claiming they don't need anyone to fix them, but in reality they are just trying to convince themselves.

    I think this is a pretty clear message coming from 10 years on how they feel about religion/god/spirituality, whatever you want to call it or your stance is.

    If you are like this person in the song and follow your own way, "feed on the friction (sin)" that keeps you from a relationship with god, and do things selfishly for yourself "Taking back what is mine", you will find yourself in hell once your life ends.

    General CommentI think this song is pretty straight forward. He's lost, and has spent most of his life that way, he's getting older and he's okay the way he is. He may not be in a "healthy" way of life or a on a good path, but he doesn't want anyone to try and change him "for the good".

    General CommentI think this song is describing me in a sence because up until recently (~2014) I have been completely verbal and able to speak without needing an iPad to speak for me. Thanks to traumatic events throughout my childhood, teenage years, and early 20s, plus me finally accepting my autism diagnosis from when I was about 13 rather than running from it and ignoring it I have found it more beneficial and less stressful to be nonverbal and to those that want the "old me" back that would talk, rap, and sing; "I'm right where I should be, don't try and fix me."

    Due to some of the trauma I went through a lot of people wanted me to suffer and be driven insane by the silence of not being able to see those responsible parties held accountable for their actions; but I have found joy, comfort, and peace in the silence of being nonverbal so they have no right to try an "fix" me by trying to get the old me back and force me to become verbal again.

    I know just a random though about how this song has meant something to me.
