Do you remember the Once-ler?
Who saw the world as his to take~
And said "I really only fracture
The rules that we made to break!"
Never really seemed to notice
Things we found appalling.
Smilin' as the final
Truffula was falling, falling falling
Lead the world and heal tomorrow
Knowing we can always
Run to high ground.
Same day, different story!
When we play, but now we borrow.
Falling, falling falling,
and there's no one left around!

Do you remember the Once-ler?
Finally drove the world away.
Turnin' all the things we live for
Turned the sky from blue to gray.
Never really seemed to notice
Things we found appalling.
Smilin' as the final
Truffula was falling, falling falling
Lead the world and heal tomorrow
Knowing we can always
Run to high ground.
Same day, different story!
When we play, but now we borrow.
Falling, falling falling,
and there's no one left around!

Falling down
We're falling,
and we live in what we believe
We fall in life...
Thank god he held on to a seed...

Do you remember the Once-ler?
Who saw the world that he designed
Lookin' from an empty factory,
The nothing that he left behind.
Finally, he seemed to notice
Things we found appalling.
Cryin' as the final
Truffula was falling falling falling.
Lead the world and heal tomorrow
Knowing we can always
Run to high ground.
Same day, different story!
When we play, but now we borrow.
Falling, falling falling,
and there's no one left around!

Falling falling falling
'Till there's no one left around...

I loved the Once-ler in the film, strangely I only watched it recently and i can't stop watching it. I had to watch it a couple of times to get the emotion of him changing and it really hit me, i really liked the character and then heard this song and I love it. I didn't know the lyrics very well since they don't seem to be on the internet and i would always feel sad when i heard it but i didn't even know if it when meant to be sad or just seemed that way. thanks so much for posting this :D i still feel slightly sad when i listen to this song maybe its because i love the once-er aha :)

Why don't you put this up as poetry in your gallery? I think it might be nice to let others see it, since nowadays journals like this eventually get eaten by the internet.

It's not that bad, so I want to see it somewhere where it can be preserved~
