"Avatar" as written by and Les Dudek....
Don't fall away to fate
Waiting on an avatar
You're stuck from divining your future
Any way the cards fall
No, that's not the only way; the needles change.

If you fate your world unwritten pages turn
To an ending that you did not write
That's not the only way.

G-U-R-U're own
Don't sell your trust for Avalon
Still stuck from divining your future
Any way the runes fall
No, that's not the only way; the needles change.

Don't you know it's just extensions of yourself
Showing you which way you're facing now
You make the needles change

There she goes. She's flying off to know where
Leaving all she has unguarded and confused.

And as she lays your reading down...

I hear that tragic chorus now
You hear them singing?
Refraining your whole life in the round
So what
So what
You won't abide, you can't confide in your riddle no -
If you would just stay in the moment

Do you suppose when she goes off to know where
Leaving everything to happen on its own.

And as she lays your tarot down...

I hear that tragic chorus now
You hear them singing?
Refraining your whole life in the round
So what
So what
You won't abide, you can't confide in your riddle no -
If you would just stay in the moment
So where's that tragic chorus now?
I heard them singing
Just pin that tragic hero to the ground
So what
So what
If you decide you're controlling the rhythm
If you would just stay in the moment

    General CommentOne of my favorite UHP songs. It's pretty apparent that the song is about Tarot and divination. Tarot can be almost addicting in that there are very enigmatic meanings behind every card in a reading.
    It almost sounds as if she is trying to get away from relying on divination, but can't help it despite warnings (If you fate your world unwritten pages turn / To an ending that you did not write)

    General CommentMelissa Kaplan has -the most- beautiful voice. When she starts building up in this song with "And as she lays your tarot down..." I get goosebumps every time.

    General CommentGreat song. Melissa Kaplan has to be one of the best musicians I've ever come across. Agreed with Guerrilla_Radio on the meaning
