The { ... \\ ... \\ ... } construct creates voices
implicitly with names "1", "2" etc.  (Follow the link at the
bottom of the page through 5.4.1!)  I don't know how
\addlyrics would behave in such a situation, but \lyricsto
surely can help.  Make the pickup a separate voice by
creating it explicitly via \context Voice = "pickup" or
similar, then attach lyrics to it via \lyricsto.
