    What does it mean?

    I heard this on a song, and. I'd like to know the meaning.

    "I'm thumbing my way back to heaven."

    It means you're hitchhiking. You're sticking out your thumb, hoping someone will stop and pick you up.

    it alludes to the phrase to thumb a lift
    meaning you hitch a ride ,standing near the edge of a road , holding out your hand with the thumb raised as a signal for a vehicle to stop and take you somewhere,
