Hm, thanks for the idea, but the problem is that this would require the "empty" 
lyrics to actually start at the beginning of the piece.

You could try something like (pseudo-code):

\new Voice = "alto" \relative {
        [music before the lyrics split]
                [music during the split lyrics]
                \new Lyrics = "split" \lyricmode {
                        [verse 2, lower part]
        [music after the lyrics split]
\addlyrics {
        [verse 1]
\new Lyrics \lyricsto "alto" {
        [verse 2, upper part]

I don’t know whether \addlyrics or \lyricsto "split" would work here but if you have only a short split section you can do the durations by hand.
