This song is by Triumvirat and appears on the album Russian Roulette (1980).

A long gone friend of mine
Used to never play games at all
Just standing aside
Like a priest in a dancing hall
An older man I know
Has been gambling all his life
Winning nothing he could have owned
He lost his mind
You bet your life and play again
You're trying anything
Right before you go insane
Pretend your loss is small
Pretend you didn't lose at al]
Define your lies
Convince them all
There's always gonna be a rise
After you fall
As long as you survive
That endless fall before you rise
Teachers teach in school
There is nothing that can't be learned
And at home they praise the grades
You never earned
No one shows you how
To understand the major rule
You can drown in a public pool
You do, you do
You bet your life and put it in again
You're trying anything
Right before you go insane
Pretend your loss is small
Pretend you didn't lose at all
Explain your lies
Convince them all
There's always gonna be a rise
After you fall
As long as they survive
That endless fall before you rise
A long gone friend of mine
Pulled a joker and lost his cool
But he lost his cool in style
The cool fool
