Times demand it, as the first words suggest, when you must "convice you're not a ghost or a stranger" well I can see many sceneries of that kind, take for example an older couple who has become alienated over the years, where you have to conquer once more the other party's admiration, soul, love..
Drug abuse (possibly heroin) as the core of someone's existance and the only pleasure life has to offer him, stands in a symbolic and literal way as well. In a literal, well, let's face it, people like that exist all around us, and in a symbolic, in way that someone's addiction (could be a lover? some other mental intoxication of any kind) is what keep him going
