"Feather In Your Cap" as written by and Beck Hansen....
Bust a move with what you can
Dead phone machine piled on the table
Disappointment is a feather in your cap
You want the truth
Not when it's unplanned

There's no map
That could tell you where you are
You're in between things
That only go halfway
You want the best
You want contests
Where everybody loses on purpose by mistake

    General CommentA great piece of melancholy, unfortunately neglected in Beck's extensive oevre. The Suburbia version is divine, and far more developed; its lyrics are as follows:

    Make a move with what you can
    Dead waters rise higher than your mind
    Disappointment is a feather in your cap
    You want the truth so you can crush it in your hand

    There's no map that can tell you where you are
    You're in between things that only go half way
    Your tangled brain, your tired old refrain
    You'll be singing it in your tired old asylum

    You want the best, you want contests
    My eyes are filled with prizes you've been showing
    Your disappointment is a card up your sleeve
    Place your bets at the door before you leave
