Verse 1
Unlike most bands I don’t need chronic to groove
I stay calm as a coma when I rock in the booth
But I was feeling kinda hungry and I wanted chedda cheese with a little salt and pepper on top of my Mc’D's
So I said, I would eat it for the weekend and explode on Monday off the food I’m eating
'Cause nowadays its all go for the eyes
I’m a go for the fries til they go to my thighs, word
So I walked out that greasy McDonald's
And saw Colin Decker taking shots from the bottle
I was king like Dylan, innocent like Makeshift
'Til I saw this city fall on the pavement
Looked up it was raining on the seventh and the evidence for heaven was illustrated in essence
In this circus for the fortune we slip and get tired
'Til we fly like dragons up in the empire

Chorus:
'Cause we are not all cowboys when I point the mic out you, you make loud noise!
And just scream, yeah this is how we’re changing the scene

Verse 2:
I went to Dixons to watch some of the Knicks game
But my hands were dead and kind of in pain
It’s from our climate being so ruthless
Still we rise up like elevators 'cause of our music
Despite the weather you know it’s magic here
Like the black phoenix up in the atmosphere
Minus 20 to us, man, that’s like a nice breeze
That’s when the dudes break out their lawn chairs and the iced teas
The city Feist calls home yeah were feisty
Purple rain in the sky 'cause we voted Nenshi
I’m the MC King looking for the MC Queen we call her Frankie
She hangs out with Miesha and the Spankies
Bury the dinosaurs, you know it’s time to soar like hot little rocketeers up in the sky we go
We’re changing Calgary all my homies play their part
So stay focused, stay, stay Ricca Razor Sharp

Chorus:
'Cause we are not all cowboys when I point the mic out you, you make loud noise!
And just scream, yeah this is how we’re changing the scene

Verse 3:
I’m from a city called Victoria on Vancouver Island full of lots of hippies and we shop at consignment
Too busy on the beach to freak and get violent
I love this city from Esquimalt to the Highlands
So when I moved here for my education
Heads were shaking like "Yo! What meds are you taking?"
But we are more than your stereotypes
So turn up your stereo tonight

Bridge:
Everywhere I go, these people they ask me
Where is my home now and I tell them it’s Calgary
Some people don’t get it turn their noses up at me
But the scene is expanding in the city of Calgary

Chorus:
'Cause we are not all cowboys when I point the mic out you, you make loud noise!
And just scream, yeah this is how we’re changing the scene
