Trying to read the world today and see where you're at
I'll never do that

In “Aries”, the Gorillaz’ leader, David Albarn, is depicting himself as someone who is “isolated” away from the addressee. And despite the fact this track was dropped amidst the 2020 pandemic, where a billions of people were forced to quarantine themselves, within the context of the lyrics this sensation seems to be more symbolic than literal. Indeed to some degree, such as in the second verse, it can be argued that whom he is singer to is an estranged romantic interest.
But overall the sentiment that is being relayed is the singer’s desire to connect with the addressee. And part of the reason they are not currently together does not seem so much due to distance as it is he perhaps being in some type of emotionally-vulnerable state where he may not have been ready for such a relationship. But now his disposition is changing, and he is becoming more open to socializing with the addressee and this time keeping the individual ‘by his side’.
So again, this song can reasonably be interpreted as one in which the narrator has perhaps given up on romance. However, now, due to his feelings for the addressee, is re-entertaining the idea “falling in” love “again”. But in its entirety, “Aries” is viewed as a track in which the singer is expressing a desire to mitigate his loneliness via becoming closer to an identified addressee(s).
