Here's the (slight) "storyline" that this video follows, along with which lyrics I'm referring to.
In this video, we have 4 characters (Simba, Scar, Mufasa, and Nala), and what kind of love they had for Simba (not counting Simba himself, of course), how their different types of love affected eachother, and what kind of love they wanted in general.
Mufasa of course had a fatherly love for his son and heir.
Scar never had much of a love for Simba, he was more jealous and it was a jealousy that grew each day until Mufasa was killed.
Nala, being Simba's childhood friend, missed him greatly when she thought he was dead, and her friendly love grew into a romantic love for Simba.
"King Saul fell on his sword when it all went wrong"
Mufasa killed himself thinking Simba was already dead. (Let's pretend Simba still got out of the stampede safely.)
(King Saul was the first king of Israel, biblically speaking. In the battle against the Philistines, three of his sons were killed, and because of this he committed suicide by falling onto his sword. Just thought I'd give you some info on who he is. :) )
"Joesph's brother sold him down the river for a song"
Nuka hoped Kovu would drown in the river, so he could finally get attention from Zira, but his plan failed and Kovu was still alive.
(Most should know who Joseph is. You know, he had 11 other brothers, a coat of many colors, all that? :) )
"And some you do for love, love, love"
Simba attacked the hyenas thinking it would gain him some respect from his father, as he thought that was the same thing as love, but his father told him "Being brave doesn't mean you go looking for trobule.", and reassured Simba he would always love him.
"Raskonikov felt sick, but he couldn't say why, when he saw his face reflected in his victim's twinkling eye."
Scar was ultimately satisfied with how successful the murder of Mufasa had been, until he saw how heartbroken Simba was over the whole situation.
(Raskonikov is the main character in the classic book "Crime and Punishment".)
"Some things you'll do for money, and some you'll do for fun."
Money, in this part, represents power. Scar banished Simba for power.
"But the things you do for love are 'gonna come back to you one by one."
Though murdering Mufasa certainly doesn't seem like any sort of loving gesture, it's still something Scar DID for love.
He wanted love from his pride the had long forgotten him, but the power that came with being king ultimately overruled Scar, and the karma (Simba) for killing Mufasa finally comes to him.
"...put a bullet in his brain."
Just look at bullet metaphorically.
If you need anymore explanations, just tell me.
