The serum pretty much turned him insane, giving him that "dual personality." But either way, we do know what he wants, and that is made clear... to turn everyone into Lizards. The Green Goblin just wanted Spider-Man on his side, and to kill "countless innocents again and again" until they were both dead.
No, that's what he wants to do. It's not clear why he wants this beyond the most rote, one dimensional, comic book movie screenwriting playbook cliches. It's Magneto's plan from the first X-Men but without the pathos.
