about

GRICE is a London born singer-songwriter - Art Rocker. Propeller is his debut solo - a restless and challenging cocktail of electro-acoustic glitch, art rock and avant-pop synthesis.

'With Propeller Grice has created a genuinely extraordinary slice of experimental rock.' ClassicRockProg magazine, May 2012

'acoustic rock diamonds' The Musician magazine, Summer 2012

'the intensity of Mark Hollis or Tim Bowness with a Beatle-esque sweetness...this is highly recommended...' Chris Jones - BBC Producer/writer

Track Name: Patiently
patiently

Measured out my life, measured out my soul
I was in the cage, I would not let go
In that darkened room I don’t know what’s good for me
And in that darkened room, I will wait so patiently
And in that lonely room, I will wait so hopelessly
If loving was our crime then I will wait so patiently.

Measured out my crimes, measured out my soul
I was in the cage, I would not let go.
In that lonely room, I dont know whats good for me

And in my darkened space I don’t know what’s good for me
Well I will wait so hopelessly
If loving was our crime then I will wait so faithfully
If loving was our crime then I will wait so patiently, patiently.

Measured out my crimes, measured out my soul
I was in the cage I would not let go.
I will wait so patiently
I will wait.
Track Name: Let It Go
let it go

Can you tell me who to be
Who to love and who to see
And the love that’s in my head
Pretty soon it could be dead.
And the love that once we shared
Pretty soon it could be dead.

And they tell you to believe
How to live and to succeed
And the dream that’s in your head
Pretty soon it could be dead.
And the love that once was there
Pretty soon it will be dead.

Sit down and let it flow
Sit down and let it flow, again.
Sit down and let it flow
Sit down and let if flow
Sit down and let it flow.

And the love that once we shared
Pretty soon it will be dead.
Sit down and let it flow again.
Sit down and let it flow my friend
Sit down and let it flow
Sit down and let it go.
And the dream that’s in my head
Pretty soon it could be dead.
and the dream that’s in my head
Very soon it will be dead.
Track Name: Slowdive
slowdive

I’m in this slowdive
Hand me my slowdive
I could be having the time of my life
I could be loving instead of disguising
I’m in this slowdive
I could be having the time of my live
I could be loving instead of despising
Never going back, no
Never going back again, no, no
Never going back.
Track Name: Highly Strung
highly strung

you never need to doubt it
make you sure about it
if you love him, let him breath, a while
at the hands of a friend
a beautiful end
like you’re having fun
you’re Highly Strung
Is there a voice, make you sure about it
make you scream and shout it
(if you hate him, let him bleed, a while
you’re Highly Strung, you’re Highly Strung...
Track Name: Propeller
propeller

maybe its fair, savage and strong
search for the reason, I am alone
maybe its far, to get back to home
your hearts a propeller
you’re landing alone
there was a song, that I wanted, to sing
it could have healed us and said, everything
but your heart, is beautiful

out of the blue
out of it all
what was the moment
you started to fall
maybe its’s far
to get back to home
your heart’s a Propeller
are you landing alone
there was a picture, that I wanted you to paint
it could have shown us the good, for goodness sake
but your heart is beautiful

surrender

there were some words that I thought I could say
when the tears and the silence go away
now I dream of the Love
and the glory, from up above
and my heart’s a Propeller
out of the blue
that was the moment
I saved it for you
maybe its far
I hope you get home
your heart’s a Propeller
you’re landing alone

there is a prayer that I want you to sing
hit a chord to disolve everything
and I’m gathered here today
as my Father has flown away

all the paint and the pipes
and the don’t let the bugs bite
when the tears and the silence go away
the desperate years and the wonderful tears
and your heart’s a Propeller

surrender

there is a prayer that I want you to sing
the wine and the rocks and the ticking of clocks
and I’m gathered here today
as my father has flown away
and my heart’s a Propeller
Track Name: Lost and Found (006.5)
lost and found (006.5)

dont speak it makes the air nervous
dont walk on the battle ground
I spilled the venom from the bottle
now all is lost in the Lost and Found
dont speak, dont speak

dont speak it makes the air nervous
dont walk on the battle field
I drank the venom from the bottle
all is lost
dont speak, dont speak

do you really Love him
will you really care for him forever
can we really say what we ought not to say
are we changing forever
it’s in my own Father
I send my own brother away
we really return again and again
are we changing forever

we cheat and we lied and we failed
we love and we feel and we wail
we nurse and we feel and we heal

do you really Love him
will you really care for him forever
can we really say what we ought not to say

are we changing the weather
it’s in my own mother
it’s in my Lover, it’s in my son
send me away, I’m running today
can you hold it together, forever

we Love and we feel and we wail
we nurse and we bleed and we fail
we Love and we bleed and we feel

dont speak, dont do it, don’t say it
don’t speak, dont say it, dont speak
shut up, shut up, (you don’t mean it)
Track Name: Broken Arrow
Broken Arrow

any Love is good enough for me
everyone must journey to be free
Broken Arrow feel my broken veins
feed my broken veins
it’s good enough for me

every Love is torn and blown apart
end this now and lead us to the start
Broken Arrow feel my broken heart
feel my broken heart
heal my broken heart

every Love is lost at sea
circling birds are calling us to be
end this now and lead us to the start
take us to the start
heal our broken hearts
Track Name: Summer Screams
summer screams

I will remember this...
(anywhere, that I’m away from your arms)
I will wait for you
any light, that I can shine on this storm
In golden streams the summer rains
In golden screams the summer ends.
Track Name: The Cage
the cage

said another prayer for me today
running out of words that we can say
I dont want to Love until I fade away

and when it all falls down, I was meant for me
to climb our mountain tops is something to believe
said another prayer today for you
something in the world you’ve got to do
I dont want to Love until I change the view

and when it all boils down, I was meant for you
to climb our mountain tops is something we must do

and when it all boils down, I was meant for you
to climb our mountain tops is something we’ve got to do
said another prayer, something in The Cage
setting me free, don’t me leave, don’t let it bleed

said another prayer today for me
something in the Cage has set me free
I dont want to Love until we bleed you see
I dont want to Love until I stop believing
