I've done some re-editing, and I think you'll find that Eminems song "Like Toy Soldiers" fits quite well with Face and the plot at the moment.

I've edited to make it kidsafe, but the original song isn't. So if you want to hear what it's like with the music, then you'll have to find a radio edit!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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 suppose to show it, my crew ain't supposed to know it
Even if it means goin' toe to toe with the whole Empire 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 sith ever pop off I'm suppose to be beside 'em
This Brom stuff, I tried to squashed 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 dis the squadron publicly and I just lost it
It was crazy, this sith went way beyond some Brom and Noz sith
And even though the we all escaped, I feel like we lost it
I spent so much energy on it, honestly I'm exhausted
I'm so caught in it I almost feel like I'm the one who caused it
This ain't what I'm in the NR for, That's not why I got in it
That was never my object for some NR 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 with out ever mentioning [ ]
And that' was just out of respect for not runnin' my mouth
And talking about something that I knew nothing about
Plus Wedge told me stay out, this just wasn't my beef, So I did
I just sat back, watched and gritted my teeth.
While he's all over the net down talkin' a man, who literally saved my live like
Stang it I understand, this is business and this sith just isn't none of my business
But still knowin' that it could pop off at any minute cuz

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

There used to be a time when you could just stop a crime
And wouldn't have to worry about one of your people dyin'
But now it's elevated cause once you put someone's rep in it
The stuff gets escalated, it ain't just words no more, is it?
It's a different ballgame you call names and you ain't just preachin'
We actually tried to stop the whole scandal from leakin'
Wedge had reasoned with him, kicked it and had a chat with him
And asked him not to start , he wasn't gonna go after us
Until Brom started Yappin' on holonets how we betrayed him
Stang it Wedge, smash him, mash on him and let him have it.
Meanwhile my attentions pulled in another direction
Some sludgenews at the Enquirer who makes up news at his desk has an problem with us and thinks that we'll be his prize news story
Tries to think of news ways to annoy and make up some poodoo
But now he's mucked the game up cause one of the ways we came up was through that publication, the same one that made us famous
Now the owner of it got a grudge against us for nothin' ? Well stang it
That banthafodder can get it too, shoot him then
But I'm so busy being annoyed, I don't realise
That we just been slagged off to all the other NR guys.
And they think we're all scum, which is wrong, after all that we've done
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.
Maybe shout 'em out in a rap or up in a chorus to show 'em we love 'em back
And to let 'em know how important It is to have The Rogue and Wraith Squadrons up in
our corners
Their loyalty to us is worth more than 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 'fore I let it go any further
But don't get it twisted, it's not a plea that I'm copinn'
I'm just willing to be the bigger man
If y'all can quiet 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
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

Sorry, was singing it to myself when I went for a jog this afternoon! :)
