To get rid of the beams, all you have to do is say:

        \property Staff.autoBeaming = ##f 

which I do for almost all vocal music.

What you really meant say was that you were adding a slur.  You should
be able to make the slur invisible by saying something like:

        \property Voice.Slur \override #'transparent = ##t

but I just tested that and it doesn't work.  I'm sure there's
something similar that does, though.  

I didn't know how to do this when I started doing things like you're
doing, so I just put in enough blank syllables to get the non-blank
ones to line up, which is tedious and error-prone.  A blank syllable
is indicated by a single _.
