"Let It Roll" as written by Jack Bassam Barakat, Robert Ryan Dawson, Alexander William Gaskarth and Zachary Steven Merrick....
The time on the clock reads half past four
I'm wide awake and thinking
With my pillow on the floor

Then maybe I'm just wasting my time
Dreaming in a harsh reality
I don't wanna wake up just to find out
It's the same

Let it roll, our time is fleeting so we take control
From California to my home sweet home
Our days repeating like it's all we know
It's all we know

Out here the hills roll on for miles
The sun is like my own sense of direction
I'm always drawn to each horizon

When it's rising, when it sets
But all I can think about is sex
And playing one more game of six cup
In the backyard at the wedge
I know I'll never die alone because of all of you

Let it roll, our time is fleeting so we take control
From California to my home sweet home
Our day's repeating like it's all we know
It's all we know

Take, take a breath
We've got all the time in the world
To get a grip on the fact that we don't last
But right now I wanna watch the tide roll in
With my best friends

Let it roll, our time is fleeting so we take control
From California

Let it roll, our time is fleeting so we take control
From California to my home sweet home
Let it roll, it's all we know
It's all we know

    General Commenti think basically the song is about letting your worries go and just living life with your friends. you can't dwell on smaller worries when there's your whole life out there!

    General CommentI think in this song he talks about where they are in life at this point... how wonderful it is to be alive and be blessed with the friends and fans they have and that he hopes he isn't dreaming because it feels like heaven.

    I hear the hills roll on for miles
    the sun is like my own sense of direction ;
    i'm always drawn to each horizon
    when it rises and when it sets
    but all i can think about is sex.

    Our time is fleeting so we take control from California to my home sweet home, our days
    repeating like it's all we know ;; it's all we know.
