Lyrics are sometimes included on disk jackets, album covers, etc.
Just because something is not accessible does not mean people have the right
to pirate them, reproduce them, etc. Instead, the rarity of a material would
make it even more legitimate to enforce the copyright.
The lyrics are copyrighted. And you can copyright something and intend not
to sell or distribute it, and you have the right to keep others from
profiting off of it. Otherwise, authors and artists would have no ability to
protect unreleased material, which is insane.

But on a lighter note.
Whether or not the owner/author/creator/inventor of CC advocates piracy or
doesn't, is not material at all to what the *contributors* to CC are
As far as "music lyrics", since when can you actually buy the lyrics to any
piece of music, anywhere, ever, at any time, whatsover?
You BUY sheet music, or a song book, or a performance.
I've never, in my entire life, seen "lyrics" for sale by themself.
So please provide a place where they are. Otherwise you cannot protect the
profit from something from which there is no profit and was never intended
