It is usually recommended not to use the command "lilypond" directly, but
rather, "ly2dvi".  The latter worked for me, while the command you gave
produced something like what you described.  ly2dvi produces a DVI output,
which can be viewed with xdvi, or converted to PostScript with dvips.  See
the archives and instructions for ways to produce other types of output.
