      Eminem - Like Toy Soldiers (feat Martika) Música y Letra

      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 supposed 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 supposed to show it, my crew ain't supposed to know it
      Even if it means goin' toe to toe with a Benzino, it
      Don't matter, I never drag them in battles that I can handle
      Less I absolutely have to I'm supposed to set an example
      I need to be the leader, my crew looks for me ta guide 'em if some shit ever does pop off I'm supposed to be beside em'
      That Ja shit, I tried to squash it, it was too late to stop it, there's a certain line you just don't cross and he crossed it
      I heard him say Hailie's name on a song and I just lost it
      It was crazy the 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
      And I'm so caught in it I almost feel I'm the one who caused it
      This ain't what I'm in hip hop for, that's not why I got in it
      That was never my object for someone to get killed, why would I wanna destroy something I helped build
      That wasn't my intentions, my intentions were good, I went through my whole career without ever mentioning
      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 wasn't my beef
      So I did, I just fell back watched and gritted my teeth
      While he's 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 isn't none of my business, but still knowin' the shit could pop off at any minute, 'cuz
      
      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
      
      There used to be a time when you could just say a rhyme and
      Wouldn't have to worry about one of your people dyin'
      But now it's elevated cause once you put someone's kids in it
      The shit gets escalated. It ain't just words no more is it?
      It's a different ballgame you call names and you ain't 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, he wasn't gonna go after him until Ja started yappin' in magazines how he stabbed him
      Fuck it 50 smash him, mash on him and let him have it
      Meanwhile my attentions pulled in another direction
      Some receptionist at 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 off his mic and make a new record
      But now he's 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 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
      But we still have soldiers that's on the front line
      Who's willing to die for us as soon as we give the orders
      Never to extort us strictly to show they support us
      And maybe shout 'em out in a rap or up in a chorus
      To show 'em we love 'em back and let 'em know how important
      It is to have Runyon Avenue, soldiers up in our corners
      Their loyalty to us is worth more than any award is
      But I ain't trying to have none of my 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 'fore I let it go any further
      But don't get it twisted it's not a plee that I'm coppin'
      I'm just willing to be the bigger man if y'all can quit poppin' off at the jaws well then I can, cause frankly I'm sick of talkin'
      I'm not gonna let someone else's coffin rest on my conscious
      Cause...
      
      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
