"Let's Roll Just Like We Used To" as written by and Sergio Pizzorno....
Out of my garden, passed the battle cruiser
We jumped over cemetery gates
There on the wasteland, we saw the horizon
I noticed your pupils dilate

They're at it again, let's roll just like we used to
In fields when we were young our hearts got lost in the circles
We had it all, a rise and fall

Came from the booze and the fags generation
And prayed for the mayhem to start
You said you were foolish but I saw the genius
In pulling the stitches apart

They're at it again, let's roll just like we used to
In fields when we were young our hearts got lost in the circles
We had it all, a rise and fall
So raise your glass to the ones who have passed
And the ones that got away, oh
They're at it again, let's roll just like we used to
In fields when we were young our hearts got lost in the circles
We had it all, a rise and fall
I saw her face, way out in space

    General CommentI think of this one as an ode to an estranged childhood friend. That's just me though.

    General CommentFirst off 'They're at it again' could mean anything, not sure.

    Love this intro though, booze and fags generation, maybe hankering for a more innocent time before it all got quite idealistic and irresponsible.

    It's about clarity, purity when you were young perhaps, dunno.

    General CommentI feel that it's about being younger... with some references to drug use maybe - "pupils dilate", "way out in space" and also with the action of "roll" ... as in to roll a joint maybe....
    A comment on British culture, we really are a fags and booze generation here, but I don't think Kasabian are commenting about it in a negative way... more in a reminiscent way.
    It seems Tom or Serge feel like they could do with a night similar to their earlier days maybe... "lets roll just like we used to "
    I realllly like this album.

    General CommentThis song is all about Ecstasy - "rolling" is common slang for taking ecstasy/MDMA. Once you realise this, it all makes sense: "I noticed your pupils dilate", "a rise and fall" etc
