    General CommentChinosoma, you are talking about Deus ex Machina ... which btw is Latin and usually interpreted "god from the machine" or "god on the machine". Le Deux Machina is not that - "les deux" in french means "the two" or "both", could Billy just have forgotten an "s"..?

    General CommentThis song is from Machina 2...

    Remember the part of Glass and the Ghost Children, where you hear a person talking and a piano playing? Le Deux Machina is the synth version of the piano.

    General CommentPronounced Le Deux Mach(like mach 5) ina.. not machine-a like most think it is.. same with the album.. The Le Deux Machina is an actual thing.. it was used in ancient greek plays as a sort of climax to the play when they couldn't wrap up all the questions.. and give a proper resolution.. so they used this crane (don't think modern. think rope and like a pulley system) and dropped an actor from the "heavens" who would portray Zeus or another feeble greek god to solve the conflict. Played off their prayers to the gods to always help them so they used it in the play to help.. in this matter the crowd could relate (not so much nowadays) so it worked well.. This early special fx. was the writers easy way of hiding the fact that they couldn't manage a proper ending in the rush to write the play. So the crowd didn't notice due to the oohs and ahhs.. of a contraption that was virtually new and unheard of.. In close to modern times it can be seen as inspiration to the contraptions people use in movies and the like to make actors fly, etc.. Well anyways thats what Le Deux Machina is.. so now you know what billy was thinking.. kinda..

    General CommentMy friend told me this was about gay sex in a dark room. I don't see why he said that.
