Create a playlist of tracks that do not have lyrics text

For macOS 10.10 and later only. This script will scan the Music library or a chosen Smart playlist for tracks whose Lyrics tags are blank and copy them to a new discrete playlist. Can also toggle to search only for tracks with lyrics.

Free to use in Demo Mode: While in Demo Mode, found tracks will be reported but only ten tracks will be copied to the "No Lyrics" playlist per launch. Escape and Quit will also be disabled during a scan.

To purchase a registration code and remove these restrictions, download and launch the app. Click "Register..." in its File menu and follow the prompts to purchase a code for $1.99. When your payment is processed, you will be emailed a registration code that will unlock the Demo Mode restrictions.
