I didn't see anything in 'Aligning lyrics to a melody'. The discussion
is interesting, but the OP wanted multi-line lyrics left-aligned to
themselves, but still centered under the note (and only for the first
word). What I'm looking for is both notes and words to be left-aligned

You should only need to change LyricText.self-alignment-X. Doing it within a \layout block makes it easy to affect all lyrics contexts:

\version "2.18.2"

\layout {
  \context { \Lyrics
    \override LyricText.self-alignment-X = #LEFT

{ b'4 b' b' b' }
\addlyrics { one two three four }
\addlyrics { five six seven eight }
