"Everyone's Gone To The Moon" (1965) by Jonathan King. Love Song or Prophecy?

Some of the lyrics seem a lot more timely for 2021 than they did in 1965. If Nostradamus wrote this song, they would be talking about it for hundreds of years.

"Eyes full of sorrow, never wet

Hands full of money, all in debt

Sun disappears in the middle of June

Everyone's gone to the moon."


but the line that gets me is,

"cars full of motors, painted green"

"green" is far more meaningful today than it in 1965. The lines about "money" and "debt" seem appropriate for this day and age, what with millionaires blasting off for space, the moon, Mars? Is it all new or was it written about eons ago when we left the last burned out rock to come to this new rock, that's about to burn out like the last one did? Am I reading too much into this song?

2. Loved

Z & E and I loved their song but it's all about the future. The King song doesn't seem to be about the future at all. Not from a 1965 viewpoint.
