    Nope, it's not Polaris Mine.

    I guess this question was a little TOO tough, I thought there'd be a Dr. Demento or 90's college radio / NPR buff out there who would know it.
    The name of the band was Ed's Redeeming Qualities: ALL MUSIC GUIDE LINK

    I believe the lyrics you refer to come from Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"
    Let's try one from a 90's band a little more well known, especially for their quirky, abstract lyrics. This one in particular really cracks me up....

    "As for my single self I had as lief not be as live to be in awe of such a thing as I myself.

    As for my own concern I had as think to think as keep on thinking not so hard as for the brain to burn.

    And at the salad bar a man he stares into the croutons hypnotized by powers of the bac-o-bits.

    And I expose myself to stimuli unfit for people outside the controls of an experiment."

    Here's a hint: The band took their name from the title of a poem their frontman had written about Neil Young vomiting....

    Yep you are right. Are your lyrics from Soul Coughing?

    If not - slap me and call me silly. If So... here are some lyrics from a song by a band

    "the local rock group down the street is trying hard to learn their song, to serenade the weekend swuire who just came out to mow his lawn....."

    It is indeed Soul Coughing - lyrics taken from "Buddah Rhubarb Butter".

    By the way, Michael Doughty just released a new cd back in May titled "Haughty Melodic". Anyone who's a fan of Soul Coughing should enjoy his new solo effort.

    By the way, I have no clue who those lyrics you posted belong to

    Herman's Hermits / Peter Noone
    (caught their act at a local radio station's annual oldies-fest several years ago).

    Here's one I was just listening to yesterday:

    Everyone would gather
    On the twenty-fourth of May
    Sitting in the sand
    To watch the fireworks display
    Dancing fires on the beach
    Singing songs together...
    Though it's just a memory
    Some memories last forever

    I believe the band is Rush - Song is lakeside park

    and everybody around cause he aint got
    nobody to listen to

    Looking down on empty streets, all she can see
    are the dreams all made solid
    are the dreams all made real
    All of the buildings, all of the cars
    were once just a dream
    in somebody's head

    Peter Gabriel - Mercy Street

    Try this one:

    I never saw no miracle of science
    That didn't go from a blessing to a curse
    I never saw no military solution
    That didn't always end up as something worse
