Disappear - R.E.M.

I dragged my feet
Across a seat
And 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
Taroudant or Olomouc
Before I learned to see
The vanishing point appear.

I looked for you and everywhere
I looked for you and everywhere.

There is a calm I haven't come to yet
I spend half my life figuring what comes next
I telescoped in
I'll finally win
I'll finally win the prize
That now eyes see
A comic's perfect timing squeezed.
I'm head-first fighting everything
The crushing force of memory
Erasing all I've been
The vanishing point appears.

I looked for you and everywhere.
I looked for you and 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 appears.

I looked for you and everywhere.
I looked for you and 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.
