Logic - Waiting Room Lyrics




[Atom:] So, we waiting for what?
[God:] Excuse me?
[Atom:] So you sittin here telling me, this place is a waiting room, right? What are we waiting for?
[God:] Rebirth
[Atom:] Rebirth?... like reincarnation?
[God:] If that's what you wanna call it
[Atom:] What the fuck you mean "if that's what I wanna call it?" either this is what it is, or this is What it ain't
[God:] Sure
[Atom:] Chu mean? Ughhh, this muhfucka [sighs in frustration]
Aight, lemme get this straight, every time I die, I come here, we talk, and you send me back to earth to be reborn?
[God:] You know the last time we had this conversation it was in mandarin and you were 13
[Atom:] Mandarin?
[God:] And a girl!
[Atom:] What? Nah, bruh, you fuckin with me. You're... Like, Jesus Christ
[God:] he was here too!
[Atom:] What? Wait, wait, so the Christians got it right?
[God:] Well I'm about to reincarnate you Atom. I'd say everyone kinda got it right
[Atom:] This is a whole lot to take in!
[God:] I know trust me, I've been there
[Atom:] Sooooooo, how many times have I been reincarnated?
[God:] Many, many many many, MANY times
[Atom:] If it's so many times, why don't I remember?
[God:] If we stayed here long enough, the lives you have lived, and the knowledge from each of them would return
[Atom:] What?
[God:] I'm actually about to send you back to 1736 as Bryan Fairfax, the 8th lord Fairfax of Cameron
[Atom:] Word, ayy, that sounds important
[God:] Oh yes you own 40, 000 acres
[Atom:] God damn!... oh, I'm sorry
[God:] Ha, it's quite alright
[Atom:] Well at least I'm not poor no more
[God:] Well sure! with all that land and the hundreds of slaves you'll own
[Atom:] Slaves!?!? Aw hell nah, nononono, look look look: how you gonna take a black man, send him back in time, and now I gotta own slaves?
[God:] Well if it's any consolation, your son Tom, the 9th Lord Fairfax of Cameron sets them free!
[Atom:] No! That does not make me feel better at all
[Atom:] Wait hold up, I just realized... you said you're gonna send me back in time?
[God:] Well, I'm not really sending you back in time. that doesn't exist where I come from, only in your universe
[Atom:] Well, where are you from?
[God:] Honestly Atom, even if I explained where I came from, or told you about the others like me, you just wouldn't understand
[Atom:] But if there's others like you, how can you be God?
[God:] Atom, I said you wouldn't understand!
[Atom:] So what's the point of doing all this?
[God:] Really?
[Atom:] What?
[God:] A little cliche don't you think? Essentially asking Me the meaning of life
[Atom:] Well I figured I would ask before you send me back and I can't remember none of this.
[God:] Atom come here. the meaning of life... the reason I created this place... is so that you can grow, and mature
[Atom:] Like the human race? Like this is how the human race is supposed to grow and mature? mature into what? We can't even get along
[God:] No Atom, you! It's for you, YOU to mature
[Atom:] I don't understand
[God:] I created this place for you, Atom. This entire place was made for you. Every time I send you back, every life you live, you grow, and mature and understand the grand meaning behind all of this just a little more each time
[Atom:] Just me? Wait, what about everybody else?
[God:] Atom, there is no one else
[Atom:] I don't understand
[God:] Atom, you are every human being who has ever existed since the dawn of your kind on earth
[Atom:] Wait I'm everyone!?!?!
[God:] Aaahhhhh yes, now you are beginning to see it
[Atom:] So I'm like, everyone that ever existed on earth, ever?
[God:] EARTH? Ha, that's cute. Earth was just YOUR birthplace. Let us not forget all the stars humanity will colonize over the millennia
[Atom:] Wait, that is so much. Too much to take in! I'm every human being that ever lived?
[God:] Or ever will live, yes!
[Atom:] I'm Jesus?
[God:] And all of his disciples
[Atom:] I'm Hitler!?!?
[God:] And the millions he murdered
[Atom:] That's deep
[God:] You see Atom, every act of hatred and violence you committed against another, you were committing against yourself and every act of love and hand of kindness, you also extended unto yourself
[Atom:] God, why do all this?
[God:] Someday, long from now, you will become like me. You will mature to become what I am.
[Atom:] I'm a God?
[God:] [chuckles] No, not yet. you see, I was once where you stand right now... it is not until you have lived every human life inside of your universe that I may take you from this place. Once you have walked in the shoes of every race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, loving and hateful person, it is only then that you will understand how precious life truly is

  9. The Senate

    Check out "Hallelujah" by Logic for the first part of this story

  10. Mr Avocado7

    3:53 my guess is that by saying that he means we’re all equal and every time we hurt someone we hurt ourselves because we’re all humans. We’re all equal, we’re brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, mothers, fathers to each other and every time we hurt or do an act of kindness to someone we do it to ourselves

  11. AlonZo

    This is actually true, I finally understand it. Anyone truly wants to know the meaning of life? Listen to Alan watts "awaken" it'll set you free. Knowing the meaning of life is actually a sad and surrender experience.

  12. knightpeanut

    THE EGG

  30. Yung Kirk

    Based on "The Egg" by Andy Weir (The same guy who wrote The Martian)

    Raw naq

    And the guy got this from the HINDU philosophy of Advaita

    Yung Kirk

    @Raw naq Yeah but the story is based on The Egg...

  31. Kostya Zhang

    Who’s here after watching Kurzgesagt’s the egg video🙋

  34. Dhairya Gandhi

    Who came here after Kurzgesagt's "The Egg"?

    Brolog Sanctum

    Its Andy Weir who wrote it. Get your research straight.

    Chaos D

    @Brolog Sanctum Nobody said that Andy DIDN'T write it. What do you mean "get your research straight"?

  35. Moogle

    *the egg*

  36. RGTube

    kurzgesagt in a nutshell just did an animation of this

    Süleyman the Magnificent

    Kurzgesagt in a nutshell just did an animation of "The Egg" by Andy Weir*

    RGTube

    @Süleyman the Magnificent correct, very correct. And logic did the same thing. There are many recreations of this story and many different ways to write the story of the egg. It honestly should be turned into a 3 hour movie or a long netflix series of a person living a couple hundred lives

  37. Zahken

    I just wanted the animated version of the egg and I came back here

  38. Strewth

    Anyone here after watching Kurzgesagt?

  51. Mikeyy11

    I swear a Genius wrote this

  52. Keaton Hughes

    This blew my fucking mind lol

  53. booleans410

    Logic did not write this script, it's almost word for word copied off the short story 'the egg' by andy weir. http://www.galactanet.com/oneoff/theegg_mod.html

  54. JasonTron

    man I can interpret this in an individual sense but it's not that good as i was waiting for sounds more as a conspiracy theory instead of having a "deep" meaning but i acknowledge it as a decent attempt but i waited more out of it even i have "deeper" thoughts or conspiracy theories.

  55. Aaron Ross

    Aaron Ross hahaha yess

    UK Music

    How tho?

  56. Naruto Uzamaki

    Aye yo pause incest much

  57. Squid Jism

    Does anybody remember a collection of mythical short stories? Where one of them was about the old Gods in a waiting room waiting to be reincarnated?
    It starts off with an ocean God swimming with the dolphins, and the next thing he realizes he's in a waiting room with a clock on the wall, surrounded by other gods. There's a shape-shifting receptionist at the front desk who explains to the god set the clock on the wall represents time left until the end of existence at 12 o clock. Zeus was explaining his plan to be reincarnated as a pornstar in California, and the receptionist told him to be careful, as he will be mortal now, and could die of STDs, he explains that aphrodite was reincarnated as a madam in a brothel in Nevada. The receptionist goes on to talk about the gods at their popularity oh, and when they don't have enough believers they die and are sent to the waiting room, where they apply to be reincarnated back on Earth before the end of existence, the old dolphin God is thinking to himself about the room he's in, while watching the clock on the wall get closer and closer to 12. The very last sentence is him being anxious because he doesn't have any time left to be reincarnated, and the very last sentence is "tick tock, tick tock,tic-"

  58. Mark Smith

  61. McToweliee

    This can be taken in two different contexts.
    Simply switch the name from Adam to Atom. Suddenly it becomes something else.

    So, we waiting for what?

    Excuse me?

    So you sittin' here telling me, this place is a waiting room, right? What are we waiting for?

    Rebirth

    Rebirth? Like reincarnation?

    If that's what you wanna call it

    What the fuck you mean “if that's what I wanna call it?” either this is what it is
    Or this is what it ain’t

    Sure

    Chu mean? Ughhh, this muhfucka

    Aight, lemme get this straight, every time I die
    I come here, we talk, and you send me back to earth to be reborn?

    You know the last time we had this conversation it was in mandarin and you were 13

    Mandarin?

    And a girl!

    What? Nah, bruh, you fuckin wit me
    You’re, like, Jesus Christ

    He was here too!

    What? Wait, wait, so the Christians got it right?

    Well I’m about to reincarnate you Atom. I’d say everyone kinda got it right

    This is a whole lot to take in!

    I know trust me, I’ve been there

    So, how many times have I been reincarnated?

    Many, many many many, many times

    If it’s so many times, why don’t I remember?

    If we stayed here long enough, the lives you have lived
    And the knowledge from each of them would return

    What?

    I’m actually about to send you back to 1736 as Bryan Fairfax, the 8th lord Fairfax of Cameron

    Word, ayy, that sounds important

    Oh yes you own 40, 000 acres

    God damn! Oh, I’m sorry

    Ha, it's quite alright

    Well at least I’m not poor no more

    Well sure! with all that land and the hundreds of slaves you’ll own

    Slaves? Aw hell nah, nononono, look look look
    How you gonna take a black man, send him back in time
    And now I gotta own slaves?

    Well if it's any consolation, your son Tom, the 9th Lord Fairfax of Cameron sets them free!

    No! That does not make me feel better at all

    Wait hold up, I just realized you said you’re gonna send me back in time?

    Well, I’m not really sending you back in time
    That doesn’t exist where I come from, only in your universe

    Well, where are you from?

    Honestly Atom, even if I explained where I came from
    Or told you about the others like me, you just wouldn’t understand

    But if there's others like you, how can you be god?

    Atom, I said you wouldn’t understand!

    So what's the point of doing all this?

    Really?

    What?

    A little cliche don’t you think?
    Essentially asking Me the meaning of life

    Well I figured I would ask before you send me back and I can’t remember none of this

    Atom come here. The meaning of life

    I’m a god?

    No, not yet. You see, I was once where you stand right now
    It is not until you have lived every human life inside of your universe
    That I may take you from this place
    Once you have walked in the shoes of every race, religion, gender, sexual orientation
    Loving and hateful person
    It is only then that you will understand how precious life truly is

  90. Hidden

    The fact that he ripped this off from a short story called "The Egg" and called it his own really pisses me off. It's almost word for word. How the hell has no one else noticed this?

    Evs

    Hidden he did rip it off lol but its not as bad as you think. He legit talked to the author and asked for his permission, and he was so supportive of it. It is almost exactly the same but were used to this from Logic lol. Hes so highly influenced.

  91. Amanda Rizzo

    ❤❤❤So grateful for these energy downloads 👽👽👽

  92. Anderson Contreras

    It's amazing how no one wrote out this skit is amazing! No one sees what logic is doing telling stories within the story like how Eminem would joking around calling his manager or pretend to be ken kaniff has a backdrop on what happens up to said song on the album or a note on what's to come 🔥💯

  93. AyyJayy

    weed was involved during the making of this thing !! wait wut actually is this ? its part of the album but its not a song so wut is this !!!
