No waves, just flat lines after audacity crashed

Hi. I was working on a project then audacity crashed. When I reopened the project, the audio was gone. Instead of the usual waves, it's just flat lines. Is there any way to fix this? Thanks.

Probably not.
Which version of Audacity are you using?
Do you recall what you were doing immediately before the crash (what triggered the crash)?
