What have you achieved
Now you’re old
Did you fulfill ambition
Do as you were told

Or are you still doing
The same this year
Should I give sorrow
Or turn ’round and sneer

I know that the prospects
Weren’t all that good
But they improved
And I’d have thought that you could

Have strived for that something
We all have deep inside
Not let it vanish
Along with your pride

Now with the aid of your new walking stick
You hobble along through society thick
And look mesmerized by the face of it all
You keep to the gutter in case you fall

I can’t go on
I can’t go on
I can’t go on
I can’t go on

I, I, I, I, I Judas Priest – Run Of The Mill

  1. Love it … Music really is such a fantastic magical time machine … This takes me hurtling right back through the decades to the very first time I saw Judas Priest as a 15 year old in 1974 on an extremely cold November night in front of about 30 other people in The Memorial Hall, Barry, South Wales … within three years they were playing to 25,000 people in stadiums in Japan.

  2. 6:34 That fucking feeling. As if the legend of metal has became a God.
    And that gnarly guitarist is the harp initiator. It feels as if I died. And walked ahead the stairs by Judas Priest.

  3. Absolute fucking classic that is sooooo underrated. One of the best Priest songs ever, and only real fans know it well.

  4. The riff of this song is almost the same with the "Queen of the deep" of UFO.
    But this does not reduse his value.

  5. Did Fish steal some melody at the end of this song for Script, that's what I ask myself after listening the first time to this song

  6. juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuudaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssss

  7. Believe it or not, this is the very first time I have ever heard this song. Wonderful. Amazing. Wondrous. The final 2 minutes, especially: Goosebumps. 😘❤️

  8. I don't get the lack of respect their first album gets. This song is an epic and the rest of it is pretty solid, too. Very underappreciated album.

  9. What have you achieved, now you're old. Damn I told myself life would last forever back then, now I'm old, haven't achieved jack shit.

  10. best guitarist even only my opinion love kk fucking so creative priest over all is superior over.maiden Sabbath.mega death.matalica

  11. Rocka Rolla is such an old school bone crushing album!!! The 70s vibe is so thick and heavy!! Love it!!! Keep in mind I'm 53.

  12. Where is rocka rolla album and sad wings of destiny on Spotify ?! How the hell could they took this away! Disrespect full!

  13. Εδώ η φωνή του halford δίνει ρέστα..το χαλί όμως που του στρώνεται είναι μαγευτικό

  14. My absolute three favorite metal singers growing up in the early 80s were, Dio, Dickinson and the Metal God. No first, second or third for me because I think each legend is great in their own style of singing. I know there are many great singers, but for me they are the best ever.
