Track Name: Oro de Corazon
Oro, with her head poised in such a way, that the shadows erased every sweetness.
Her eyes danced across the intent faces, Tucked far from harm's way In the belly of the Acadia Forest,
We amassed around a fire on this eve of reckoning.
This forest, is the home to the Staghorn Alliance.
We, are Staghorn: The only remaining human settlement after The Expiration Date.
The Expiration Date, the catalyst which beckoned the animal uprise.
We had no defense against the waking giant.
The sentient ones, swift, brutal, unflinching.
There is no doubt we deserve the fate which was enacted...

There is A sincerity in her eyes to which no one could ignore.
"You must embark on a journey, one which may end your days.
Recover the Time Turner to go back to a time before the War,
Before the Earth's bowels burst, to claim her prodigal children.
You must Warn mankind of their great folly before it is too late."
Rio raised his heavy head, "The warpath of the Sentient Ones will stop at nothing to see the end of your species."
His massive war torn antlers loomed, "If you do not succeed, all will perish. With our defenses weak, all will be executed.
We are traitors to the Fauna, treasonists and cast away."
Skylark snarled. "We lost many for your safety. Do not fail, for this all will have been in vain"
We left the next morning we left for the fallen city of New York. Hidden, buried, lost, in the rubble of the once great city is a device which will take us back to warn humanity: The End is Nigh.

May the path rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and the rains fall to quench your thirst.
And until we meet again,
May She hold you in the palm of Her hand.
Track Name: Siri Skylark
The world as you know it will end. You are an endangered species. Not the kind that we put in cages at zoos, but the last of our kind. The planet and world community will thrive in the future, but Mankind as a species will have eliminated his place, thus facing extinction. We hope you do not take our foretelling lightly, but with caution for the events to come.
This, is a mortal warning.

We are here before you after an expedition that nearly cost us our lives. Using a device called the Time Turner, we have come to deliver a message that may be difficult to understand. Your very nature and inability to comprehend is the root of the conflict in which we speak;
The world as you know it will end. We do not speak just from experience, but with evidence from both past and current events.
Track Name: Sheeba
In 2112, When the earths super volcanos erupted in an event known as "The Expiration Date", most of human kind within 300 miles of these volcanos perished. This sent the entire world into chaos and most of humanity turned on each other. Without the social structure that man built, people were completely un-prepared for survival. Weak and out numbered, humans had no chance for what came next. Animals were organized, and militarized. In Man's arrogance, they did not realize that the animal kingdom had evolutionarily caught up to them. They were sentient and lethal, taking vengence for thousands of years of exploitation.

Forgive us if this scares you, we come with only the best intentions. But intentions are just that... Do not overlook that this is a mortal warning. You must make your alliance with the world community or face certain death as a species. This prophesy is sealed in blood and will only be un-done with the changing of our ways.
