"I Want to Disappear" is the eighth track on the 1998 release Mechanical Animals. The song is introduced during the outro of "Posthuman" by an digitized voice who announces to a roaring crowd that Omega and the Mechanical Animals (the fictional band in the album's narrative) are about to perform, at which point "I Want to Disappear" begins. This implies that "I Want to Disappear" is a song that was "recorded live" like "Irresponsible Hate Anthem" and "Born Again", though unlike the other two songs, there is no mention of it being recorded on February 14th in the liner notes.

Lyrics[edit]

    Look at me now
    Got no religion
    Look at me now
    I'm so vacant
    Look at me now
    I was a virgin
    Look at me now
    Grew up to be a whore
    And I want it
    I believe it
    I'm a million different things
    And not one you know
    
    Hey and our mommies are lost now
    Hey, daddy's someone else
    Hey, we love the abuse
    Because it makes us feel like we are needed now
    But I know
    I wanna disappear
    
    I wanna die young
    And sell my soul
    Use up all your drugs
    And make me come
    Yesterday man,
    I was a nihilist and
    Now today I'm
    Just too fucking bored
    By the time I'm old enough
    I won't know anything at all
    
    Hey and our mommies are lost now
    Hey, daddy's someone else
    Hey, we love the abuse
    Because it makes us feel like we are needed now
    But I know
    I wanna disappear
