    5 and 4 reference the 5 and 4 number patterns in the code. the cypher was taking these number patterns and translating them to the alphabet. Where we got Living Things.

    ^True that.

    I'd say Living Things being the name of the album would be too simple and kinda pointless at this moment. Most likely the key or the phrase that will insinuate the actual title of the album or unlocking of the snippets.
    But if it's the case, I actually really really like it and would be more than happy to purchase Linkin Park - Living Things [2012].

    Guys. Let's freaking focus -_-.

    The only clear shit they gave us was: "stl22 is close." And what do you guys do with it? You just look at it, think about it and go further like they've never tweeted it...
    If stl22 was close with his post we should think further about it.

    53282 3265
    41602 1589
    00000 0000
    61752 1732
    53168 3156
    44682 4658
    39376 9365
    00000 0000
    00000 0000

    5 3282 3265
    4 1602 1589
    0 0000 0000
    6 1752 1732
    5 3168 3156
    4 4682 4658
    3 9376 9365
    0 0000 0000
    0 0000 0000

    5 3282 - 3265= 17
    4 1602 - 1589= 13
    0 0000 - 0000= 0
    6 1752 - 1732= 20
    5 3168 - 3156= 12
    4 4682 - 4658= 24
    3 9376 - 9365= 11
    0 0000 - 0000= 0
    0 0000 - 0000= 0

    17th letter: Q
    13th letter: M
    0th letter: _
    20th letter: T
    12th letter: L
    24th letter: X
    11th letter: K
    0th letter: 0
    0th letter: 0

    Coming out with: QM_TLXK__


    And then going back to their other tweet:
    "There's more than meets the eye. 5. 4. Cipher. It's there."

    I've tried multiple methods, and the ones who didn't work out at all will not be posted but here some methods with something out of it:

    First method (Subtract 5 from the numbers)

    5 3282 - 3265= 17 - 5 = 12
    4 1602 - 1589= 13 - 5 = 8
    0 0000 - 0000= 0 (26) - 5 = 21
    6 1752 - 1732= 20 - 5 = 15
    5 3168 - 3156= 12 -5 = 8
    4 4682 - 4658= 24 - 5 = 19
    3 9376 - 9365= 11 - 5 = 6
    0 0000 - 0000= 0 (26) - 5 = 21
    0 0000 - 0000= 0 (26) - 5 = 21

    12 - 8 - 21 - 15 - 8 - 19 - 6 - 21 - 21

    L - H - U - O - H - S - F - U - U

    Of which I can make Flush, Souls, Fouls (Mistakes) and Hushful (Something like "full of silence")


    Second Method (Cipher)
    When getting QM_TLXK__ trough an autokey cipher without any key letter (enciphering it because they told us to cipher and not to decipher) you'll get this:

    QC_LOOP__

    See: LOOP

    Then, with the 5th letter (E) inside the "_"'s (because of 5. 4. Cipher) and as key letter the 4th letter (D) (Because of 5. 4. Cipher) You'll get this (Enciphering again):

    TIHEAMLPE

    Scramble: HELPMATE (or TEMPLE)

    With the 4th letter (D) inside the "_"'s and the 5th letter (E) you'll get this (Enciphering)

    UKLMQSXNA

    Scramble: UNMASK


    ______________

    Alright those were two methods from me, they don't really solved anything yet but maybe someone can work further on them. I'm sick so I think I should went into my bed again. I'll keep updated with you guys on my telephone.

    Ciao.

    Look, if Living Things really turns out to be the Album title, Linkin Park might as well throw away all the past work over they have done in the recording studio over the past year in the gutter, after all this, do you really think LP will call the new Album something that terrible? No they won't, because I have faith in them, think clearly guys and stop clinging onto the title because it's the only lead we've got.. So Far. But its a lead with next to no sources to back it up...

    Bottom Line, i hope, with my faith in LP that Living Things is NOT the Album title, and it most likely isn't, but I could be wrong.

    Who the hell cares of Living Things is the album title. Does a name really make an album?

    No.

    I think they wouldn't make an album with the word "things" in it. It sounds a little bit sloppy tbh.

    I still recommend y'all to take a look at this: http://www.purplehell.com/riddletools/autokey.htm
    And try to look if you can get something out of it.

    We've got too numbers 5 and 4 (which also could be E and D) and with one of those as key letter and fixing up some stuff we could get something out of it.
    Don't forget to ENCIPHER it because Linkin Park told us to (EN)CIPHER and not to DECIPHER.

    i think that the ones with 00000 0000 code should have the letter k as in their teaser they wrote Lp 2k12 whichh could be for Lp 2012 to give us a hint.

    so are we dismissing livingthings.linkinpark.com? I understand on the page you can't really do anything but is it coincidence that its a domain in the first place and the code we've come up with happens to be "living things"

    Maybe some one created it to troll us into thinking that Living things is in fact the answer to the puzzle.. btw we don't know what the solution of this puzzle actually provides us right?

    This actually seems quite plausible. People figured out the Living things part. Burn it down is the title and probably part of the main chorus. Skin to bone makes sense when referring to burning things. Then we have one more thing left to add to that. Could be a chorus, could be promotional. Could be nothing at all.

    I'm thinking that Burn it down will more than likely focus on the subject of seperating yourself from either a person or an idea. Burning in the skies did it in a remorseful sense. Burn it down could do it in a more agressive, Lying from you style lyric.

    I agree. But one thing I had though of earlier is, what if, and that a BIG IF, it is PART of an album title? Maybe there's gonna be another puzzle where we get another word or two. If that is the case, I think there are plenty of titles that they could come up with that would meet Linkin Park standards. I don't really think it has anything to do with the title though. But IF it did, I'm pretty confident it would only be a part of the title.
