    Default Anastasia?

    Looking at the lyrics for "The Story so Far". Who is the youngest girl of a royal family - are we talking about the Romanovs? or perhaps Monaco, or fictional story character?

    The question "Who forged it and what lock was it made to fit?" I think we need to be able to solve this riddle

    "Besides, in my devotion to the temple of my God I now give my personal treasures of gold and silver for the temple of my God, over and above everything I have provided for this holy temple:" 1 Chronicles 29:3

    "Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering." Luke 11:52
    "I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, Revelation 6:12
    "The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss." Revelation 9:1
    This was great research, Starvethemonster. I notice that all of the Bible verses refer to either silver, a key, or blood red ruby, except one. The one about being bald doesn't seem to fit. I tried to find another verse with that pattern - "man [one short word] lost" - but haven't found one yet. The verses, of course, are different in different versions of the Bible. Which version(s) did you use? Are these all from the same version?

    Here's the letter frequencies for the ciphertext on the inside cover of the album:

    a 2
    b 1
    c 0
    d 4
    e 2
    f 2
    g 0
    h 1

    r 2
    s 6
    t 0
    u 1
    v 1
    w 1
    x 1
    y 1
    z 0
    I think the 5th line, last letter is an "O." Are you counting it as a "D?"
    DSDSO or DSDSD
    It's right on a fold so may be a little hard to read. Compare it with the last line, middle letter.

    Default The Story So Far and My Silver Key

    1. Has anyone successfully put the pieces of The Story So Far in an order that makes sense? Some of it flows fairly sensibly, but several lines don't seem to have a certain place or a character or situation just appears out of nowhere.

    2. What are your thoughts on My Silver Key? I posted a few weeks ago that there is a pattern involving the first word of each line of that song, but no one has said anything about it since.

    I don't see that one unless my lyrics are wrong
    It looks like someone did reply to your post. I agree. I don't see it either. The first 4 lines, maybe, but then nothing. Where we decide to break the lines makes a big difference. And some of the words in this song are hard to understand...

    Yes, I understood it, even before you posted about it the first time. And it wouldn't break down at the end if you had the right lyrics ...

    Default My Silver Key

    What is the correct line? I mean it's pretty clear what the letter there should be, but I'm just not hearing it yet.

    Also, do you concur on the you, you being W?

    Also I made a litttttle headway on the bingo card. It might be something you already figured out. Anyone got anything on that?
