"Disappear" as written by Zac Maloy, Justin Rimer, James Michael, Paul Mccoy and Skidd Mills....
I dragged my feet across the seat
Jumped out the passenger side
The only thing worth looking for
Is what you find inside
But that had not yet appeared
Lost, invisible here
Tel Aviv and Agadir
Tone deaf or almost
Before I learned to see
The vanishing point appeared

I looked for you everywhere
I looked for you everywhere

There is a calm I haven't come to yet
I spent half my life figuring what comes next
I telescoped in, I finally win
I finally win the prize
That now my eyes see comets
Perfect timing squeeze
I'm head-first fighting everything
The crushing force of memory
Embracing all I've been
The vanishing point appeared

I looked for you everywhere
I looked for you everywhere
Tell me why you're here
I came to disappear

Look at this face
Can you believe it?
Am I living in the beautiful vacuum?
Because I can't see it
The vanishing point appeared

I looked for you everywhere
I looked for you everywhere
Tell me why you're here
I came to disappear
Tell me why you're here
I came to disappear
I came to disappear

    General CommentThis is a song not about finding someone but trying to lose everyone. Think about it. It is Michael Stipe
    talking about trying to escape media and celebrity even if it means going abroad, "Lost, invisible here, Tel Aviv and Agadir". The line "Tell me why you're here - I came to disappear" is saying that someone is following him or taking pictures wherever he goes

    General Commentthis is one of the songs i feel i can relate to the most. a sense of utter hopelessness, almost completely defeated, but finding someone unexpectedly at your side when you had given up hope: "... i looked for you and everywhere / tell me why you're here / i came to disappear ..."

    General Commentit sounds to me someone wants to disappear into space where no one will find them.But then michael stipe finds them or he wants to disappear too. BRILLIANT song.
