"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.

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
