We've seen Josh many times before as one of the Brakebill students that 
occasionally helps out, but then disappears again into the background.

I agree.  Everything in Josh's lyrics fit the demon character's

Maybe it was just not enough of a misdirect/puzzle if the room/pocket 
world became mostly about Todd instead of the all-but-forgotten Josh?
