In Keeper E.’s This is Like Everything, listeners are taken on a journey through the mind of someone dealing with anxiety. The narrative of the song unfolds through a series of shared thoughts and memories, all of which are connected in some way to the singer’s mental health. The lyrics are a bit complex, but they’re also strikingly accurate in its portrayal of how anxiety can make all sorts of connections in our brains that don’t serve any purpose. Despite her constant searching for answers, closure, and understanding, Keeper never finds it. This is because anxiety is irrational and often counterproductive, and it doesn’t always make sense. In the end, the song is a powerful reminder of the importance of self-acceptance.
