Who can say they've never made mistakes.
Only fools will suffer what they make
Owning up rids poison when you can
Admitting you were wrong makes you a man

It's very where
But do you care?

Sad wings of destiny
Where have they gone?
I know eternally
I'll carry on

Did you think that I would disappear?
Were you so dried up from all your fear?
Thought you've make me feel impossible
You were wrong now who looks like the fool?

It's up to you
What did I do?

Sad wings of destiny
I used to burn
I know that faithfully
I'll see you turn

It's very where
But do you care?

Sad wings of destiny
Where have they gone?
I know eternally
I'll carry on

Sad wings of destiny
I used to burn
I know that faithfully
I'll see you turn

    General CommentI'm pretty sure in this song Rob is singing about his departure from Judas Priest and the bad feelings between him and the rest of the band in the years following. Sounds to me like Rob is also expressing regret at not doing more to patch up the relationship with the other Judas Priest members, and it makes his sad that although he has admitted mistakes and wrongdoings and tried to put it right, its a shame his former band members couldnt do the same. Rob is also saying that he wont feel bad anymore for leaving the band, having a successful solo career, and Judas Priest remaining bitter is only ever going to hurt them. 'Were you so dried up from all your fear?
    Thought you've make me feel impossible
    You were wrong now who looks like the fool'. To me, its quite a straightforward song, and i love the chorus reference to Judas Priests 75' Sad Wings Of Destiny. Another explosive moment by the Metal God himself.
