One solution is to specify the duration of each syllable
manually, i.e. not to use \addlyrics:

mylyricsline = \lyrics {This4 is2 a4 line8 of lyr-2 ics4 }

If you have long sections of lyrics that follow the music, it
may be convenient to split it up and use \addlyrics for that
part and manual durations for the part without melody. As long
as you specify the same LyricsVoice context for both, they will
be typeset on the same line.

I would like to set lyrics on skips, text without melody.
Is that possible without very clever lilypond-tweaking?
