That's only way I know of to place some text precisely over a note. If
you need to have text before the score or after it, the score being
like a figure in a book, you might want to take a look at
lilypond-book, though this *isn't* what you're asking for at the
moment:

What you're using right now is called TextScript. The most practical
way to control the vertical position is being setting the padding, for
instance:

\property Voice.TextScript \override #'padding = #3
