Hi there,

I honestly can’t understand what you’re trying to achieve…   =\

Having done a lot of work with Schenker graphs — which have a lot of the same 
issues and "look & feel" as chants — perhaps if you can explain it a little 
better, I can help figure out a better way to accomplish what you’re attempting.

There’s the obvious manual way:

words = \lyricmode {
  Some \set stanza = "*"
  \tweak self-alignment-X #-0.25 \markup \concat { words \hspace #2 } \set 
stanza = "*"
  toooo \set stanza = "*"
  go longword \set stanza = "*" un -- der notes

But I still feel like if I knew better what you were trying to do, I could 
figure out a programmatic way to handle it.
