Following the release of his Dawn FM album, The Weeknd kept the party going by dropping the music video for "Sacrifice" on Friday. A snippet of the song was previously previewed at the end of the video for "Take My Breath." In the new visual — which comes with a fair epilepsy warning — The Weeknd is seen sacrificing himself to what appears to be a cult as he sings about why he can't be in a committed relationship in the middle of a dance party.
The track begins with the lyrics, "I was born in a city / Where the winter nights don't ever sleep / So this life's always with me / The ice inside my veins will never bleed." The Weeknd then goes on to sing, "Uh, every time you try to fix me / I know you'll never find that missing piece / When you cry and say you miss me / I lie and tell you that I'll never leave, but / I sacrificed (Sacrificed) / Your love for more of the night (Of the night) / I try to put up a fight (Up a fight) / Can't tie me down (Down)."
