Velvet Crowbar leaked in late September 2012. It is not yet known for what it was intended, but given the timing it could be a song cut from the Paradise Edition....
I was addicted to you, but I didn't know it
You were afflicted by booze, you didn't show it, oh
Life is a velvet crowbar hittin' you over the head
You're bleeding but you want more
"This is so like you" I said
"Put yourself on back to bed."

You're like crack to me I don't wanna leave
I'm watching you sleep, 'fraid you'll stop breathing
My baby's on his 8th life darling, staying with him till the morning.
You're like crack to me
So fun I cant see, with your golden grill, your purple dream
My baby's on his 8th life darling, gonna watch him till the morning.

I was addicted to you, didn't want to blow it
You were a dick with your crew, always on the road
You want to touch life so hard why can't you give it a rest
You're not that bright for a star
Burned yourself out nothing left
Burned yourself out nothing left

You're like crack to me I don't wanna leave
I'm watching you sleep, 'fraid you'll stop breathing
My baby's on his 8th life darling, staring with him till the morning.
You're like crack to me
So fun I cant see, with your golden grill, your purple grill
My baby's on his 8th life darling, gonna watch him till the morning.

Styrofoam on the microphone, cant give it up, can't go it along
Flame colored paradise for you darlin', but death doesn't come with a warning

Life is velvet crowbar, hitting you over the head
You're bleeding syrup amour. bleeding to death

You're like crack to me I don't wanna leave
I'm watching you sleep, 'fraid you'll stop breathing
My baby's on his 8th life darling, staying with him till the morning.
You're like crack to me
So fun I cant see, with your golden grill, your purple dream
My baby's on his 8th life darling, gonna watch him till the morning.

(My baby's on his last life darlin',gonna stay around till morning)
(My baby's on his 8th life darling,but death doesn't come with a warning.)

    Song MeaningLana is singing about how even though something can hurt immensely, you can still want more of it; that you can know the effects someone can have on you, but sticking with them because, naturally, you still want to hold on to something that is pleasant even if you know they're not good, you should let go of them. Lana sings about this in many of her songs; the idea of something keeping you attached to another, even if it is unhealthy or obsessive(Diet Mt. Dew, Dark Paradise) Hence the bleeding and getting hit, but still wanting more. She also sings about how the man is like crack to her but she really doesn't want to leave; even though she probably should.
