"Vacant" is the only confirmed song known to have been written for and to be involved with the Tapeworm project. An early version of the song was played live at various shows by A Perfect Circle during their 2001 tour. Another version, finished and re-recorded without input from other Tapeworm members, was renamed as "Passive" on the band's 2004 album eMOTIVe with slightly altered lyrics and musical structure.

Lyrics

   Dead as dead can be
   From what the doctor tells me
   But I just can't believe him
   Prefer the optimistic one
   I'm sure of your ability
   To become my perfect enemy

   Wake up to face me
   Rise up and show me
   Someday I'll say you're vacant
   And maybe you're better off this way

   Leaning over you here
   Cold and catatonic
   I catch a brief reflection
   Of what you could and might have been
   It's your right and your ability
   My perfect enemy

   Wake up, why can't you face me
   Rise up and show me
   Someday I'll say you're vacant
   And maybe you're better off this way

   Maybe you're better off this way
   Maybe you're better off

   Wake up, why can't you face me
   Rise up and show me
   Someday I'll say you're vacant
   And maybe you're better off this way

   Go ahead and play dead
   I know that you can hear this
   Go ahead and play dead
   I know that you can hear me
   Why can't you turn and face me
   You fucking disappoint me
