Twice Removed

While stumbling through the multiverse
geography remains the same
Each story line's a little off
with no return from whence we came
There's 2 of us to contend with
if your aim is to slow me down
We're planning an expedition
which involves walking into town

What started off in solitude
quickly snowballed into more
Each dimension is a puzzle
a little harder than before
We're both refugees of some sort
merely looking JUST to homestead
Often we engage in BATTLE
and end up on the run instead

Infinite possibilities
and scenarios playing out
But they're all facing EXTINCTION
I've never been an Eagle Scout
Neither was my nephew the boy
from a sister I never knew
I was an only child back home
because that sister never grew

We're twice removed by circumstance
if you can appreciate that
In HIS world I NEVER MADE IT
So we've had our weird little chat
I was taken in a plane crash
several years before he appeared
And his mother was a still birth
I know you have to think I'm weird

A cowboy and a storm trooper
who are looking to settle down
There's shit we have to put up with
on that fateful walk into town
Nazi World or Armageddon
Perhaps you'd like the asteroid
Okay this world seems TOO peaceful
or maybe I'm just paranoid
