This is months after Echoes Of Silence and this is his over view of how it all started House Of Balloons.
The Weeknd is looking at the fame and the women and he comes back to Valerie. He says that she isn't truly welcome in his home but when he says that he means in his mind. He continues to say that she isn't welcomed but thoughts of her still stay on his mind. Next he sees that its not her fault she's not even there the thoughts of her are all his own doing. And that he should have never welcomed her into his world. The next verse is about all the DDs one in particular that he gave his number that keeps giving it away to other people. These girls are clearly flooding his mind though and there controlling him like Dirty Diana. (This verse also is talking about how the fans told everyone to listen to his music and now he has more fans then he is personally wanted at first, he is saying why did you guys share all my music I'm becoming to big and I can't get out of the spot light. He also goes onto say that he would never made this music if he knew he couldn't go back to the way it was). Now he goes onto say that he wishes he never picked up these love less groupies. The song is also a double entendre for Coke he is pretty much saying that he should have just left the Coke in the club but it keeps following him into his everyday life because he is so addicted to it.
(Video analyzation: He is doing a interview and its show the media and how he doesn't enjoy the media and how it bores him.. All the imagery out side of the media is what going threw his head. The girl on the bed is suppose to be Valerie (she is dressed like she was back in the House Of Balloons days) that can only see him from the outside (the tv) but she is in his mind always haunting him even durning the interview. Know the visuals for the next two verse are simply all the women that he's have fu*ked and he doesn't really care about them he still only cares about Valerie. He knows all these women are fake and just want him for his status which is why he sits back and just enjoys them for there looks in return but he is still haunted by Valerie. The final scene shows him leaving the studio and walking back to where Valerie is because he wants her back. On a music level this shows that he is leaving behind all the bull sh*t again and he just wants to put out music for the fans. And like always Valerie represents the OG fans. So when he is being haunted by her he is actually being haunted by the OG fans that want quality music and he knows he would be no where without them.. So he is coming back to us with and he just wanted to make this video to close the chapter and all the media and money that came with it. With a single music video and he is saying that he is going back to the art, the music )
Lmao I didn't get any of this from the trilogy album? All I got was dope vocals but usually his music lyrically don't be that deep. Like on his Crew Love song with Drake he says "First flight from polland" and that all I remember from all his voice and adlibs. I like that song, dont get me wrong, but he oversings.
I also doubt his project means all of that aside from being high and fu*king bi*ches that do drugs and then being sad you did drugs, cause your deeply alone or some sh*t.
