Cabbed all day, took the bus back home
The direct contrast between the party and the after party is a prolific theme of The Weeknd’s music.
During the day, and arriving to the party, she feels like some kind of exclusive star, in a taxi cab. The party however cheapens her — literally and figuratively.
She looses her money too the drug infused night life (through both purchasing drugs and being so witless she looses her money), and she looses her dignity ‘'meeting’‘ his boys [in the second part of the song,The Host]. When she is leaving, she is classless and cheap, her friends have left her and her finances only enable her to take a bus home.
