LilyPond requires that a duration be entered for skips in Lyrics yet ignores the
duration and instead simply skips one note in the music.

My personal workaround is the use of an identifier:

 zz = {\skip 1} % snores one note

and repeat it in the lyrics :

\new Lyrics \lyricsto "music" {
                        \zz\zz\zz Four

Even easier:
just use one underscore per skip, like you use a double underscore for an extender
\new Lyrics \lyricsto "music" { _ _ _ Four }

works perfectly for me and be aware that it works as well in case of melisma :

\score {
           \new Staff {
                      \new Voice = "music" \relative c' {
                              c4 c ~ c c( d1)
                \new Lyrics \lyricsto "music" {
                        One Two Four
                \new Lyrics \lyricsto "music" {
                       One _ Four __
