I Am the Highway Lyrics
Long and weary my road has been
I was lost in the cities
Alone in the hills
No sorrow or pity
For leaving i feel
I am not your rolling wheels
I am a highway

I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT THIS SONG WAS ABOUT THE "SPIRIT MAN" WITHIN US ALL.Sometimes he is neglected because our other physical urges.At the root of one's self is the spirit man, the soul , the "highway". And if you travel through this life on a spiritual journey you have travel the road of enlightenment and power. The spirit is not just an accessory but the very core of us. I think they did a very good job of relaying this message. Loving one's own spirit and the spirit of those around us is the most important life lesson.

The first Line is actually:
Pearls and Swine Bereft of me
He's saying that he doesn't have riches and nice things if that helps anyone out.

This song is about a guy telling a girl that he is more than she thinks he is. He says "I am not you're carpet ride, I am the sky" or " I am not you're rolling wheels, I am the highway." He is in love with her and is trying to prove to her that he can be and do more if she gives him the chance.

I think this song is about leaving. Just having enough with where you are and who your with. Tired of being screwed by "friends". Just getting in the car and leaving and not coming back.
