This took a while for me to figure out, but you didn't use hara kiri
for the lyrics. I changed this so Lyrics, ChordNames and FiguredBass
all use hara kiri by default. I believe this fixes your problem. You
can check this for yourself by inserting

  \translator  {\LyricsContext \remove "Axis_group_engraver" \consists
    "Hara_kiri_engraver" }
  \translator  {\LyricsVoiceContext \remove "Axis_group_engraver" \consists
    "Hara_kiri_engraver" }

into the \paper block.
