Urban thrones amongst the seasons,
We've trained for life's amounts

So that when legacies are told
Each person will have freedom

Hey guys, two new songs to make up for the six-ish months I've been gone. I left because of mostly personal and creative reasons, and also because I just got too stressed out with school and everything. I don't know, things just weren't working. Anyways, hopefully I'll be posting around more regularly from now on. It's good to be back!
Welcome back, Shivs! I'm glad to see that bee again.

I had a hard time understanding "Friend." I feel it flows well and has pleasant rhyming interspersed among the lines and not used too heavily, but conceptually I get lost. What are the imagined threats that should be "reopened," for example?

I get a general feeling from "Freedom" (that it urges people to challenge that which opposes freedom), but I can't follow the particulars, such as in the lines in bold above. What are urban thrones among the seasons? What are life's amounts for which we've trained? I can tell it sounds like you have particular reasons for your word choices, but I don't know what they are, and I wish I did!
