"The Fixer" as written by Eddie Jerome Vedder, Michael David Mccready, Matthew D Cameron and Stone C Gossard....
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Uh-huh-huh, uh-huh-huh, uh-huh-huh

When something's dark, let me shed a little light on it
When something's cold, I wanna put a little fire on it
If something's old, I wanna put a bit of shine on it
When something's gone, I wanna fight to get it back again

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, fight to get it back again
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

When something's broke, I wanna put a little fixin' on it
If something's bored, I wanna put a little excited on it
If something's low, I wanna put a little high on it
If something's lost, I wanna fight to get it back again

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, fight to get it back again
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

When signals cross, I wanna put a little straight on it
If there's no love, I wanna try to love again

I'll say your prayers, I'll take your side
Oh, I'll find us a way to make light
I'll dig your grave, we'll dance and sing
What's saved us could be one last lifetime
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, fight to get it back again
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Fight to get it back again, oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Fight to get it back again, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentThe whole vibe of optimism kind of makes sense until you reach the lines:

    "I'll burn as a way to make light
    I'll dig your grave..."

    Why would you burn to make light? It seems like this part of the song shows the extreme parts of being "the fixer" - when you try to fix everything to the point where you start going insane or maybe because it shows signs of some kind of neurotic attachment? I wonder if this has to do with the Obama administration at all too...not sure
