I think the song can only truly be interpreted perfectly by the writers, but this song is an incredible song. Notice everything in "three's" -- three men= shadrach meshach and abendigo, then the chords on the guitar are in threes, and some words, like "burn us up" or "we give up" are also in threes. Notice after the bridge, the last line says, but even if you don't, they are still speaking to god, and they repeat the chorus, ending with "wont you throw us in the fire" instead of "save us" they are completely relying on god's will. I love the story of shadrach, meshach and abendigo(which by the way were not their jewish names, those were their babylonian names) look it up; it will help you understand the meaning better than any explaination.

It's the story of shadrack, meshack, and abednego. They were thrown into the furnace for not bowing to king nebuchadnezzar's gold statue. When the guards threw them in, they weren't harmed at all by the flame only through god's protection. The last verse is saying exactly that. And the last chorus is talking about how even if god doesn't save them from the fire, they will never bow down to any other god.
