“Strange Timez” by Gorillaz (ft. Robert Smith)

The title of this song (“Strange Timez”) seemingly alludes to the idea that this current era, i.e. 2020, is a “strange time to be alive”. That is to say that many extraordinary events transpired during 2020, i.e. the year in which this song was released. And that is more or less the concept upon which the highly-metaphorical verses are based. Also there appears to be a slight anarchist tone embedded in the first verse, as in the singer not having much faith in our leaders to guide us through these times.
