Metallica: Fixxxer Meaning
Get "Fixxxer" on MP3:Get MP3 from Amazon
One for each of us and our sins
So you lay us in a line
Push your pins, they make us humble
Only you can tell in time
If we'll fall or merely stumble
But tell me
Can you heal what father's done?

It's about being a junkie. It's simple. Trust me, I know.

Someone was controlling James.

Personally, it feels as if someone is controlling Hetfields life. It could be drugs, or it could be from the point of an abused child. That would explain why he is asking if someone can heal "what father's done". His mother died, which is why he is asking if they can "fix this hole in a mother's son". This and No Leaf Clover are my favorite songs to sing because you can feel the power and emotion in James' voice.
I think fixxxer is about james childhood and how his dad left him when he was young, and about his mom dying of cancer and how he is lost without them in his life.
in the song he says can you fix what fathers done or fix this whole in a mothers son he's asking for help a release from his pain and loneliness.

Upon first glance Fixxxer appears to roam in a Metaphoric state about drug abuse, as known, the lyrics of Load/Reload is soaked by Hetfields personality and if you know his choosing of lifestyle you should know he is highly addicted to the power of drugs. The pins may symbolize a needle or a tool of torture inflicted by "The Fixxer".. A Fixxxer may be a person who pushes the individual to the point so that he/she wants to escape from "what fathers done". There is more to it but I accually have a life and a breakfast chopped on a mirror, I'm ready to ride the tiger and I know the stripes are clean... Of to the stairway to heaven to meet my Fixxxer...

This song is about the abuse of a religous father or figure.

I think it´s about people having power over weaker ones, like their children, for example.
