For K is an unreleased track recorded between 2005 and 2006. It was Track One for the album Sirens, which Lana recorded under the name May Jailer, an early alter ego of hers. The...
It was a drive-by sunday night,
most of us were in bed alright
I turned down the light,
then I heard the sirens interrupt the silence

Is this what you wished,
to commit a crime?
Is this what you wished,
to commit a crime?
Is this what you wished,
to commit a crime, commit a crime, commit a crime?

You was a nice guy, really bright,
making money's hard to do right
Guilty was his plight,
now he's in a jail cell for some 30 years now

Is this what you wished,
to be serving time?
Is this what you wished,
to be serving time, serving time, serving time?

K's a friend of mine
I think about him as he does time
Miss his white wine,
funny I don't feel free even though it's not me

Is this what you wished,
to leave me behind?
Is this what you wished,
to leave me behind, me behind, me behind?

Last year they decided
that his time is up and then he got retried
Double homicide,
sent him on a death row not to hang around, no

Is this what you wished,
did you wanna die?
Is this what you wished,
did you wanna die?
Is this what you wished,
did you wanna die, wanna die, wanna die?
Did you wanna die, wanna die, wanna die?

    Lyric CorrectionFirst of all it's "Funny, I don't feel free even though it's not me."

    Second of all, this is NOT "For K: Part 1." This is "Sirens." "For K: Part 1" is actually the song mistitled as "Pretty Baby," and there is no REAL "Pretty Baby."

    ...Nevertheless, all this confusion is what makes Lana so alluring!

    My InterpretationSeems like a straight forward story. A person the singer knows has committed some crime. She was close to this person and is questioning their motives and expressing how she feels in light of the situation.
