This song popped up in something I was reading. The artist is known as Weyes Blood, and I don’t know anything about her other work.
It’s Not Just Me, It’s Everybody expresses the widespread sense of isolation and worthlessness in an age when we feel continually on display.

Living in the wake of overwhelming changes
We’ve all become strangers
Even to ourselves
We just can’t help
We can’t see from far away
To know that every wave might not be the same
But its all apart of one big thing

Oh it’s not just me, it’s not just me
It’s not just me, it’s everybody

Mercy is the only
Cure for being so lonely
Has a time ever been more revealing
That the people are hurting
Oh it’s not just me
I guess it’s everybody
Yes we all bleed the same way

Oh it’s not just me, it’s not just me
It’s not just me, It’s everybody
