[chorus-]
Step by step, heart to heart, left right left
We all fall down
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]

I?m suppose to be the soldier who never blows his composure
Even though I hold the weight of the whole world on my shoulders
I ain?t never suppose to show it, my crew ain?t suppose to know it
Even if it means going toe to toe with the Benzino, it don?t matter
I never drag ?em in battles that I can handle less I absolutely have to
I?m suppose to set an example, I need to be the leader
My crew looks for me to guide ?em
If some shit ever just pop off I?m suppose to be beside ?em
That Ja shit, I tried to squashed it, it was too late to stop it
There?s a certain line, you just don?t cross it, and he crossed it
I heard him say Hailie?s 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 I?m exhausted
I?m so caught it I almost feel like I?m the one who caused it
This ain?t what I?m in hip-hop for, it?s not why I got in it
Now it?s never my object to for someone to get killed
Why would I wanna destroy something I helped build
It wasn?t my intentions, my intentions were good
I went through my whole career with out ever mentioning ____
And that?s just outta respect for not running my mouth
And talking about something that I knew nothing about
Plus Dre told me stay out, just wasn?t my beef, So I did
I just fell back, watched and gritted my teeth while he?s all over TV
Now I?m talking a man who literally saved my live, like fuck it
I understand, this is business and this shit just isn?t none of my business
But still knowing this shit could pop off at any minute

[chorus]

It used to be time when you could just say a rhyme
And wouldn?t have to worry about one of your people dying
But now it?s elevated cause once you put someone?s kids in it
Shit gets escalated, it ain?t just words no more, is it
It?s a different ball game, call names and you ain?t 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 wasn?t 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 pulley?d in other directions
Some receptionist said the source who answers phones at his desk has an erection for me and thinks that I?ll be his resurrection
Tries to blow the dust of his mic and make a new record
But now he?s fucked the game up cause one of the ways I came was through that publication, 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 ?em then
But I?m so busy being pissed off, I don?t stop to think
That we just inherited 50?s beef with murder inc
And he?s inherited mine, which is fine, ain?t 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 ?em out in a rap or up in chorus to show we love ?em back
And to let ?em 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 ain?t trying to have none of me people hurt or murdered
It ain?t worth it, I can?t think of a perfecter way to word it
Then to just say that I love y?all too much to see the verdict
I?ll walk away from it all before I?ll let it go any further
Now don?t get it twisted, it?s not a plea that I?m coping
I?m just willing to be the bigger man
If y?all can quiet popping off at the jaws with the knocking
Cause frankly I?m sick of talking
I?m not gonna let someone

Eminem-Mockingbird


[intro] Yeah, I know sometimes, things may not always make sense to you right now, but hey, what daddy always tell you? Straighten up little soldier, stiffin up that upper lip, what you cryin' about? you got me.

[1st verse] Hailie I know you miss your mom, and i know you miss your dad, when im gone but im trying to give you the life i never had, i can see you're sad even when you smile when you laugh, i can see it in your eyes deep inside you wanna cry, cause your scared. I aint there daddy's with you in your prayers, no more crying wipe those tears daddy's here no more nightmares, we gonna pull together through it we gonna do it, Lainie Uncle's crazy aint he yeah, but he loves you girl and you better know it, we're all we got in this world, when it spins, when it swirls, when it whirls, whem it twirls, two little beautiful girls, Lookin puzzled in a daze, I know its confusing you, Daddy's always on the move, mama's always on the news. I try to kepp you sheltered from it but some how it seems, the harder i try to do that the more it backfires on me. All the things growin up as daddy, that he had to see, daddy dont want you to see but you see just as much as he did, we did not plan it to be this way, your mother and me, but things have gotin so bad between us i dont ever see us being together ever again. like we used to be when we was teenagers, but then of course everything always happens for a reason. i guess it was never meant to be, but its something we have no control over and thats what destiny is. But no more worries rest your head and go to sleep, maybe one day we'll wake up and this will all just be a dream.

[chorus] Now hush little baby dont you cry, everything is gonna be alright, stiffen that upper lip up little lady i told ya, daddy's here to hold you through the night, i know mommy's not here right now and we dont know why, we feel how we feel inside, it may be a little crazy, pretty baby but i promise mama's gon' be alright

[2nd verse] its funny i remember back one year when daddy had no money, mommy wrapped the christmas presents up and stuck 'em under the tree, and said some of 'em were from me, cause daddy couldnt buy 'em, ill never forget that christmas i sat up the whole night crying, cause daddy felt like a bum, see daddy had a job but his job was to keep the food on the table for you and mom, and at the time every house that we lived in either kept getting broken into and robbed or shot up on the block. and mom was saving oney for you in a jar, trying to start a piggy bank for you so you could go to college. Almost had a thousand dollars til someone broke in and stole it, and i know it hurt so bad it broke your mama's heart. And it seemed like everything was just starting to fall apart. Mom and Dad was arguing alot so mama moved back on to Chalmers in a flat one bedroom apartment, and dad moved back to the other side of 8 mile on the Novara. And thats when daddy went to California with his cd, and met Dr Dre and flew you and mama out to see me, but daddy had to work, you and mam had to leave me. Then you started seeing daddy on the TV and mama didnt like it and you and Lainie were to young to understand it. That papa was a rolling stone, mama developed a habit, and it all happened so fast for either one of us to grab it. Im just sorry you were there and had to witness it first hand, cause all i ever wanted to do was just make you proud. Now im sitting in this empty house remeniscing looking at your baby pictures it just trips me out, to see how much you've both grown its almost like your sisters now. Wow i guess pretty much are and daddy's still here, Lainie im talkin' to you too daddy's still here, I like the sounds of that, yeah, its got a ring to it dont it. Shhhh mama's only gone for the moment.

[Chorus]

[Outro]And if you ask me too, daddy's gonna buy you a mockingbird, ima give you the world, ima buy a diamond ring for you, ill do anything for you to see you sm

Song: Like Toy Soliders
[ Chorus ]
Step by step, heart to heart, left right left
We all fall down
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
[ Verse 1 ]
I’m suppose to be the soldier who never blows his composure
Even though I hold the weight of the whole world on my shoulders
I ain’t never suppose to show it, my crew ain’t suppose to know it
Even if it means going toe to toe with the Benzino, it don’t matter
I never drag ‘em in battles that I can handle less I absolutely have to
I’m suppose to set an example, I need to be the leader
My crew looks for me to guide ’em
If some shit ever just pop off I’m suppose to be beside ‘em
That Ja shit, I tried to squashed it, it was too late to stop it
There’s a certain line, you just don’t cross it, and he crossed it
I heard him say Hailie’s 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
