Lyrics

Now you see me, now you don't
Don't ask me where I'm at
Cuz I'm a million miles away
Treated like a forbidden heel		(Verse 1)
Don't say my thoughts are not for real
Or you won't see me again

Am I here or am I there?
Or am I playing on the stairs?
Am I in my room with my toys?		(Chorus 1)
I am the disappearing boy

When I walk in crowded rooms
I feel as if it is my doom
I know that I don't belong
In that room I see her			(Verse 2)
I see her and she's with him
I turn around and then I'm gone

Don't call me up 'cuz I'm not home
My whereabouts are now unknown
I vanished from all your joy		(Chorus 2)
I am the disappearing boy

I had my doubts
Of where I belong			(Bridge)
It's something to think about

(Chorus 2)

About the artist behind Disappearing Boy:

Green Day is an American punk trio formed in 1987.[1] The band has consisted of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass guitar, vocals), and Tré Cool (drums, percussion) for the majority of its existence.

Green Day was originally part of the punk rock scene at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. Its early releases for independent record label Lookout! Records earned them a grassroots fanbase, some of whom felt alienated when the band signed to a major label.[2] Nevertheless, its major label debut Dookie (1994) became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone, and 15 million copies sold worldwide.[3] As a result, Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands The Offspring and Rancid, with reviving mainstream interest in and popularizing punk rock in the United States.[4][5] Green Day's three follow-up albums, Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, but they were still successful, reaching double platinum and gold status respectively.[6] Green Day's 2004 rock opera American Idiot reignited the band's popularity with a younger generation, selling five million copies in the U.S.[7]

The band has sold over 65 million records worldwide,[8] including 22 million in the United States alone.[9] They also have three Grammy Awards, Best Alternative Album for Dookie, Best Rock Album for American Idiot, and Record of the Year for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams".
