The God From The Machine Songfacts explains this song was inspired by a plot device used in Greek plays, called deus ex machina, in which a seemingly unsolvable problem is suddenly solved by a contrived and unexpected intervention. In the case of this track, it's Santigold stepping into her own life to solve her own problems.
