I think it's only a combination of life + lie.

It's like life-lie just written together, as Norwegian tends to write together compound words. You can also create words like this in many languages (Lebenslüge in German, élethazugság in Hungarian, etc.).

If only there was a little red pill... or is THIS the red pill and we're already aware of the Matrix and now need a little blue pill. No, not THAT little blue pill. That can't help us now.
