Step by step, heart to heart, left right left
We all fall down...

Chorus
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
Im supposed to be the soldier who never blows his composure
Even though I hold the weight of the whole world on my shoulders
I aint never supposed to show it, my crew aint supposed to know it
Even if it means goin toe to toe with a Benzino it dont matter
Id never drag them in battles that I can handle unless I absolutely have to
Im supposed to set an example
I need to be the leader, my crew looks for me to guide em
If some shit ever does pop off, Im supposed to be beside em
That Ja shit I tried to squash it, it was too late to stop it
Theres a certain line you just dont cross and he crossed it
I heard him say Hailies 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 too much energy on it, honestly Im exhausted
And Im so caught in it I almost feel Im the one who caused it
This aint what Im in hip-hop for, its not why I got in it
That was never my object for someone to get killed
Why would I wanna destroy something I help build
It wasnt my intentions, my intentions were good
I went through my whole career without ever mentionin
And that was just out of respect for not runnin my mouth
And talkin about something that I knew nothing about
Plus Dre told me stay out, this just wasnt my beef
So I did, I just fell back, watched and gritted my teeth
While hes all over t.v. down talkin a man who literally saved my life
Like fuck it i understand this is business
And this shit just isnt none of my business
But still knowin this shit could pop off at any minute cause

Chorus

Verse 2
There used to be a time when you could just say a rhyme
And wouldnt have to worry about one of your people dyin
But now its elevated cause once you put someones kids in it
The shit gets escalated, it aint just words no more is it?
Its a different ball game, callin names and you aint just rappin
We actually tried to stop the 50 and Ja beef from happenin
Me and Dre had sat with him, kicked it and had a chat with him
And asked him not to start it he wasnt gonna go after him
Until Ja started yappin in magazines how we stabbed him
Fuck it 50 smash em, mash em and let him have it
Meanwhile my attention is pullin in other directions
Some receptionist at The Source who answers phones at his desk
Has an erection for me and thinks that Ill be his resurrection
Tries to blow the dust off his mic and make a new record
But now hes fucked the game up cause one of the ways I came up
Was through that publication the same one that made me famous
Now the owner of it has got a grudge against me for nothin
Well fuck it, that motherfucker can get it too, fuck him then
But Im so busy being pissed off I dont stop to think
That we just inherited 50s beef with Murder Inc.
And hes inherited mine which is fine aint like either of us mind
We still have soldiers thats on the front line
Thats willing to die for us as soon as we give the orders
Never to extort us, strictly to show they support us
Well maybe shout em out in a rap or up in a chorus
To show them we love em back and let em know how important it is
To have Runyan Avenue, soldiers up in our corners
Their loyalty to us is worth more than any award is
But I aint tryna have none of my people hurt and murdered
It aint worth it, I cant think of a perfecter way to word it
Then to just say that I love yall too much to see the verdict
Ill walk away from it all before I let it go any further
But dont get it twisted, its not a plea that Im coppin
Im just willin to be the bigger man
If yall can quit poppin off at the jaws, well then I can
Cause frankly Im sick of talkin
Im not gonna let someone elses coffin rest on my conscience cause
