Exhibited at the Royal Society of Sculptors as part of the First Plinth Award in 2020, the artwork uses some of the keywords displayed by The Cost of Your Words and phrases created by Trackers and feeds them into an AI model. This generates song lyrics for a silent karaoke.
These lyrics are written in specific music styles (there is a rap song, a heavy metal one, country, rock etc).
They are highlighted as they scroll on the displays as if they are meant to be sang by those looking at the work.

Below is a selection of the lyrics generated for the show:

ROYAL!

So Royal carefully wiped away the tears
And listened to her advice
Well I heard the voice of Jesus Christ
In the city bright and early when

Pre-Chorus
Royal used to call me back then
When Royal got home from work

Chorus
Royal said Royal cried every night and choked up every time Royal slept
But his hands would soon come undone
The night Royal stood beside her
As Royal released her long brown hair

Verse 2
Caught by the color of blue
Playing defense, giving in
Royal keeps the devil by the nose
I know that Royal will let you go

Pre-Chorus
Royal was just an old friend
We were just talking about the same kid

Chorus
Royal said Royal cried every night and choked up every time Royal slept
But his hands would soon come undone
The night Royal stood beside her
As Royal released her long brown hair

Bridge
Yeah, knocking was the word
Before I lost my mind to what Royal said years ago

Chorus
Royal said Royal cried every night and choked up every time Royal slept
But his hands would soon come undone
The night Royal stood beside her
As Royal released her long brown hair


LONDON

On a cold morning in london
On a cold morning in london
I might tell you funny stories just because
I went down to london town one day

Pre-Chorus
It was a good day in london town
Sunday best friend to me

Chorus
I was out in london, I was out in london
I was out in london, I was out in london
I was out in london, I was out in london
And now I thought about whether you could be the only living boy in london town

Verse 2
New york to london, Paris to rio
Woman, you deserve a warm welcome
Open up your heart, let me come inside
I feel the heat from the floor again

Pre-Chorus
Met a little girl in london town
And she gave me her hand to hold

Chorus
I was out in london, I was out in london
I was out in london, I was out in london
I was out in london, I was out in london
And now I thought about whether you could be the only living boy in london town

Bridge
Tonight this packed trip is all worth while
Live without london is a night without music

Chorus
I was out in london, I was out in london
I was out in london, I was out in london
I was out in london, I was out in london
And now I thought about whether you could be the only living boy in london town


PRE HIGH

But you broke my heart another time
With smiles and shake your fists high
We hold our hands up high
We hold our hands up high

Pre-Chorus
By flying high, and hold on tight
This time I will be!

Chorus
Too hype too soon, too high too soon
Too high too soon
Too high too soon, too high too soon
And fight, and fight for me

Verse 2
I keep running, running, running
To help you get to sleep
Away from your shadow
You lift my spirit high

Pre-Chorus
And he sees everything
His eyes shine with majesty and love

Chorus
Too hype too soon, too high too soon
Too high too soon
Too high too soon, too high too soon
And fight, and fight for me

Bridge
You were there when I crashed into the sun
You were there when I hit the killer high

Chorus
Too hype too soon, too high too soon
Too high too soon
Too high too soon, too high too soon
And fight, and fight for me


BE MUSEUM

The museum stars
Like the way the dawn coming
To take a man home
Oh the museum stars

Pre-Chorus
Would you be my museum?
Would you be my soul?

Chorus
Yo, you can museum
To my code of the warrior
Spin me around, fall on my spine
Be my museum, so come and go with me

Verse 2
She is wise
Even when I kid myself
And when I museum
A building, a mood

Pre-Chorus
Then my heart was beat upon
And my museum was upon

Chorus
Yo, you can museum
To my code of the warrior
Spin me around, fall on my spine
Be my museum, so come and go with me

Bridge
Was I wrong is it love or lust?
I never told you to dive into my water

Chorus
Yo, you can museum
To my code of the warrior
Spin me around, fall on my spine
Be my museum, so come and go with me
