"Miss Fortune" as written by and Werner/irmler Diermaier....
Said the angel to the Queen
I lift my skirt when Voltaire turns
As he speaks, his mouth full of garlic
White, yes, white
Misfortune of us two
He told you to be free
And you obeyed
We have to decide what is important

A war we never see
Or a street so black that babies die?
A system and a theory
Or our wish to be free?
To organise and analyse
And at the end realise
That nobody knows
If it really happened

    My Interpretation"Said the angel to the Queen
    I lift my skirt when Voltaire turns
    As he speaks, his mouth full of garlic
    White, yes, white
    Misfortune of us two
    He told you to be free
    And you obeyed
    We have to decide what is important"

    Voltaire advocated for freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and a secular government so I think what they are saying here is that once they do not have a preset value system to follow such as religion, that they have to create meaning for themselves which is way harder than you would think.

    "A war we never see
    Or a street so black that babies die?"

    a war we never see I assume is heaven and hell and a street so black babies die I think is referring to the bleakness of the world without religion.

    "A system and a theory
    Or our wish to be free?"

    is freedom worth giving up having a system for?

    "To organise and analyse
    And at the end realise
    That nobody knows
    If it really happened"

    even if we analyze everything a lot, we will never come to any definite conclusions about life
