That just makes me think Math and that Nie had the reasoning right, so I guess I'm still stuck.

Can you give another hint about the letter part of the clue ? I don't get it at all. Is it about verses or the musical pattern of the song, as in verse and chorus alternations?

Not verses, rhymes or any other musical patterns.

Next clue: C(hris?) seems to have quite an adventure here (maybe an Adventure of A Lifetime)

OK guys ! One of the two last guesses is indeed what we are looking for, but the reasoning is not...
Oops, I didn't know we had to put in our reasoning.
I had a lot in my mind that was leading to The Scientist, I even thought that you had said you were working in a labo, so you might be a scientist too. :)

I'm to continue with your last clue:
In the AOAL video, Chris is playing an ape, the only science related thing that comes to mind is the Evolution theory of Darwin, hence

the scientist

To make it a little bit more difficult :)
Nothing to do with apes or AOAL itself.

Here's the next clue: Look at the letter C and its "adventure". It's all logical. What is its relation to the other letters ?

That's true, but view it that way: I am a Scientist but my name is "I Ran Away". Doesn't really help you distinguish between the options, I'm afraid ;)

Nutella may well have been numbing my neurons...(lets face it I eat a lot of it LOL), but...

From A=B and B=C follows A=B and C=D
If A=D then C=E
Also, C=B


What?? :speechless::whaaat: So C is equal to D and E and B....oh ok, all clear now , *not* LOL

It's I Ran Away because C keeps running away from all the other letters

It may very well be logical, I totally believe you, but Im not following your logical path, Im apparently stranded on another one haha

Because I thought you said A=B (or D apparently), so how can now A equal C? :) Unless you mean that the letter C in your previous riddle stands for the word "Adventure"? If so, does each letter stand for a word connected to the solution of the riddle?

Also 42 minus 1.36 = 40,64....are these minutes? surely not the length of the track LOL But not even the length of an album? I dont think Coldplay made an album shorter than 42 minutes?

*finished eating Nutella* lol

OK, @AMDB9 got the spirit of the whole thing right ! And initially of course @beastwars got it right (clever idea with the rhymes; I checked it roughly and it seems to be really similar to what I wrote !! Wow, thanks for spotting this !)

Here is the full solution as I thought of it:

"Wounds that heal and cracks that fix, tell me your own Mathematik" - vaguely hinting to the fact that this is about "your own" mathematics and has its own logic, not standard mathematics

From A=B and B=C follows A=B and C=D
- C is the main character here (it may stand for Chris, lol). A is another character (it occured to me afterwards that this, quite fittingly (!) could stand for Alice/Annabelle). B, D and E are places. So first situation, A in one place and C in another. Next, A in the place that C was in, and now C "ran away from you (A)" over to D.
If A=D then C=E - Now A comes to D, and C naturally runs away again ("it's all I ever do")
Also, C=B - Confusing part: B does not stand for a place here. This line tries to tell you that the song we search (the I who ran away, i.e. C) is a B-side.
Finally, 42 - 1.36 = X+Y - Mainly there to confuse you all :p but it does have a deeper meaning as well. Between 42 and 1.36 lies the X&Y Era, and also our song (I Ran Away is the B-side immediately after 1.36 on the Scientist single)

So you see, with a little bit of imagination it all actually makes sense ! :D Sorry if this is all rather confusing - it was meant to be ! :p

Not as bad as mine I'm sure haha!
I thought of a good one yesterday, but I have since forgotten it (I need to write these down). So, give me some time to see if I can remember, and if not, I'll just come up with some semi-mediocre clue

It was confusing! Which reminds me "in confusion confidence"

Here's my new clue (I couldn't remember the clue I was thinking of yesterday, so this is a new one):

Before you can perform an important action mentioned in Swallowed in the Sea, you can do this.


Edit: I just realized this clue reminds me of an earlier one by @I ran away, but for the record the song we're looking for is not the one that I ran away was.
