Penelope Scott: Self Care Meaning
Self Care Lyrics

I found this song heavily representing mental health, how mania and depression cross over.

This is counteracted with the video game style of the sound affects, and also shows how others pressure leads to more self doubt and self worth issues before being hidden once again with "Self Care" strategies.

I think it is talking about how she hears about people doing all things for self care, but she doesnt like those things or doesnt have the energy for them.

This song is written from the perspective of someone who is trying do their best but it never seems to work,eg.“it’s never ever gonna be enough for the people in the back row” which can feel very degrading.
Hope this helps!
