About What's Gone Is Gone, songwriter Kelcy Wilburn notes:
"Some New Orleans musicians took a page from the Bushwick Book Club and invited songwriters to read Margaret Atwood's The Heart Goes Last, write a song inspired by it, and perform the songs at a show together. The dystopian, near-future tale about an imprisoned society was a peculiar read that got me thinking about how we go to great lengths to avoid acknowledging certain aspects of ourselves and to avoid really knowing ourselves. We attempt to distract ourselves from our insecurities and weaknesses with any number of 'escapes,' but there really is no escape. The grass isn’t greener on the other side—you just stopped watering your lawn."
