Song: Like Toy Soldiers

E                    A                     E
Step by step, heart to heart, left right left
       F#m        A          B
We all fall down Like toy soldiers
Step by step, heart to heart, left right left

We all fall down like toy soldiers

Bit by bit torn apart We never win

But the battle wages on for toy soldiers]
C#m                                       A
Iím suppose to be the soldier who never blows his composure
           C#m                                                     B
Even though I hold the weight of the whole world on my shoulders
            C#m                                                         A
I ainít never suppose to show it, my crew ainít suppose to know it
Even if it means going toe to toe with the Benzino, it donít matter
    A                                              B                   
I never drag Ďem in battles that I can handle less I absolutely have to

Iím suppose to set an example, I need to be the leader
My crew looks for me to guide íem
If some shit ever just pop off Iím suppose to be beside Ďem
That Ja shit, I tried to squashed it, it was too late to stop it
Thereís a certain line, you just donít cross it, and he crossed it
I heard him say Hailieís name on a song and I just lost it
It was crazy, this shit went way beyond some Jay Z and Nas shit
And even though the battle was won, I feel like we lost it
I spent so much energy on it, honestly Iím exhausted
Iím so caught it I almost feel like Iím the one who caused it
This ainít what Iím in hip-hop for, itís not why I got in it
Now itís never my object to for someone to get killed
Why would I wanna destroy something I helped build
It wasnít my intentions, my intentions were good
I went through my whole career with out ever mentioning ____
And thatís just outta respect for not running my mouth
And talking about something that I knew nothing about
Plus Dre told me stay out, just wasnít my beef, So I did
I just fell back, watched and gritted my teeth while heís all over TV
Now Iím talking a man who literally saved my live, like fuck it
I understand, this is business and this shit just isnít none of my business
But still knowing this shit could pop off at any minute


It used to be time when you could just say a rhyme
And wouldnít have to worry about one of your people dying
But now itís elevated cause once you put someoneís kids in it
Shit gets escalated, it ainít just words no more, is it
Itís a different ball game, call names and you ainít just rapping
We actually tried to stop the 50 and Ja beef from happening
Me and Dre had sat with him, kicked it and had a chat with him
And asked him not to start it, he wasnít gonna go after him
Until Ja start gabbing in magazines how he stabbed him
Fuck it 50, smash him, mash him, and let him have it
Meanwhile my intentions pulleyíd in other directions
Some receptionist said the source who answers phones at his desk has an erection for me 
thinks that Iíll be his resurrection
Tries to blow the dust of his mic and make a new record
But now heís fucked the game up cause one of the ways I came was through that 
the same one that made me famous
Now the owner of it got a grudge against me for nothing but fuck it
That motha fucker can get it too, fuck Ďem then
But Iím so busy being pissed off, I donít stop to think
That we just inherited 50ís beef with murder inc
And heís inherited mine, which is fine, ainít like either of us mind
Still have soldiers that is on the front line that's willing to die for us
As soon as we give the orders, never to extort us
Strictly to show they support us
Maybe shout Ďem out in a rap or up in chorus to show we love Ďem back
And to let Ďem know how important is to have Runyon Avenue soldiers up in
our corners
Their loyalty to us is worth more then any award is
But I ainít trying to have none of me people hurt or murdered
It ainít worth it, I canít think of a perfecter way to word it
Then to just say that I love yíall too much to see the verdict
Iíll walk away from it all before Iíll let it go any further
Now donít get it twisted, itís not a plea that Iím coping
Iím just willing to be the bigger man
If yíall can quiet popping off at the jaws with the knocking
Cause frankly Iím sick of talking
Iím not gonna let someone elseís coffin rest on my conscious
