Patiently 06:32
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.

Let It Go 04:57
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.

Slowdive 03:19

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...

Propeller 09:58
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

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.

The Cage 03:47
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

about

This album is dedicated to my late father C.J.Peters (DFM)
the title of the album (Propeller) was inspired by the floor of the chapel at RAF Biggin Hill that is constructed of hundreds of propellers from WW1 planes.
My father's RAF memorial ceremonial service took place here.

'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
