I'm paying for all my father's sins
So I will thank him for you
I'mma thank him for you

The Weeknd believes he leads this crazy, drug-and-sex-filled lifestyle because lack of fatherly support at home leading him to look for love and validation in other places, like via taking ecstasy and playing girls.
