And the narrator, i.e. the person who is on this path, perceives that there are many perils, some of them life-threatening, along the way. However, as illustrated by the titular metaphor, he is not going to let up.


So again, this song can be interpreted as an inspirational tune. That being said, the goal the singer is trying to reach is never specified. Therefore the listener, to some degree, can envision it as whatever he or she wants. The song does not have a general applicability towards just any aspiration. However, it makes it clear that what the singer desires, he longs for so earnestly that he has adopted a succeed-or-die attitude.
