lyrics

THE EMPTY SCAN:
Her puffy eyes have been crying again
From the truth on an empty scan
That she's felt since the bleeding began
In her mind, she knows she's a failure

The memories persevere through falling tears
And there's nothing that can make it stop hurting
How can you grieve? How can you breathe,
When you never even get to say goodbye?

And the doctor said, "This is perfectly normal"
And she said, "I don't give a fuck how normal it is"
And she feels so hollow and so much pain
And now she is 1 in 4

She'll carry a burden if not a baby
At least not for now
But will she carry the burden alone?
She told no one she was expecting
How can she tell someone that she has miscarried?
