Travis uses Astroworld as a way to look into the past through nostalgic lenses and reflection on any stolen innocence. His most fond childhood memories of spending his days playing in the Astroworld were taken away when they destroyed it to build new condos.
His second album cover uses Astroworld to show how the hedonistic tendencies in Travis come out after his childhood innocence is taken away. Travis is bringing Astroworld back to houston in an entirely new light.
