Lyrics on Player Screen via Skins?

I don't know how the skin in that Facebook post was doing it (or if it was faked?) but I assumed that perhaps a single line of Lyric text was exposed as an optional element which Skin developers could display if they wanted to.

Personally though, if lyrics were to be (optionally) displayed on the Player Screen, I'd suggest overlaying them as nice big readable scrolling text over the cover art. Use a very heavy font and lighter text with a dark border/shadow for all-round readability.
