"What If?" as written by Salvatore P. Erna, James Shannon Larkin, Tony Rombola and Rob Merrill....
Been disconnected for so long
And left my mark here along the way
So many years have come and gone
So many fears have remained the same

I see a faith
I swim and play
Yet drowning all possibilities
Beyond what I believe and know
I cut the cord free of home again

It turns to silence
A silence sometimes I can hear
Internal violence
A struggle deep within what if

What if I leave, could I still breathe
What if I breathe, could I still be
And if I leave, would I be me

I lost my hope along the way
I lost my hope along the way

It turns to silence
A silence sometimes I can hear
Internal violence
A struggle deep within what if

What if I leave, could I still breathe
What if I breathe, could I still be
And if I leave, would I be me

What if
What if
What if

It turns to silence
A silence sometimes I can hear
Internal violence
A demon deep within what if

What if I leave, could I still breathe
What if I breathe, could I still be
And if I leave, would I be me

What if
What if
What if

    Song MeaningSully has said this song is about wanting to call Godsmack quiets and move on with his life but contemplating what would become of him if he does leave.

    General CommentOne correction -- I believe it is:
    "A sea of faith, I swim and play"

    Unfortunately the deluxe edition of the CD didn't come with a lyrics sheet, so I can't confirm this for sure. However, "I see a faith" as it is written now, makes no sense.
