I climb to the top for you just to crawl back down
Do what it takes to set you loose
Off the top of my head, the first sentence says/means;
I expend great effort [climb to the top] in trying to encourage you to become a more self-sufficient/stronger person and you take the chicken way out and learn nothing [crawl back down].
The second seem to be a command. The singer could be telling the person to do the things necessary to "set you loose"; this idiom could be referring to a number of meanings; free you from a bad relationship; to make your life a more independent one; etc.
Your take on this could be as accurate as mine. There's just no way of knowing for sure.
