Kokayi Anyone see The Lorax…

and think they have a better idea what “The Onceler’s Theme” is about? Adopting “The Lorax” as a metaphor for music being fake/plastic and hearing The Onceler’s story about how all the trees (real music/artists) were killed out because fake shit became more profitable, but there were still seeds (real music/musicians) that could be planted to spread real shit?

Am I on the right track or was The Onceler’s Theme not even a Lorax reference?

That’s how i understood it. The Lorax was my favorite book actually and i read it to my son allll the time so when I heard that song I had a similar thought that you did

I knew nothing about that so glad you brought it up. Would seem pretty fitting with the theme of the album
