"Architecture of lies" as written by and Leonor/pelayo Fernandez Ceballos Watling....
I used to think one day I'd learn the truth about life
Nailed everything I saw to the wall of certainties
Then life came along and casually pulled down
My house

Used to think I would understand things
Now I learned there´s nothing to be understood
Then I believed everything I touched
Was a lie impossible to live up to
Pull down brick by brick
The fence around my life
Burnt the flowers ´cos I thought
I thought they were alibis

Used to think I would understand things
Now I learned there´s nothing to be understood

Now I observe constructions around me
The architecture of sophisticated lives
Warehouses to pile up mistakes
Woodsheds to hide the dreams we give up on

Used to think I would understand things
Now I learned there´s nothing to be understood
I used to think one day I'd get to be something
Now there's nothing that I wanna be
There's nothing I can be 'cos I'm nothing
there's nothing I can be, not worth trying

    General CommentCool "nihilist" song, love the metaphors she used (the founce around my life, woodsheds to hide the dreams we give up on). The fact is, one takes a long time in this life to understand there's nothing to be understood... and to live with that.
