“Mercury & Lightning” is the title track off John Mark McMillan’s new album. It is an epic cry
out for God and his presence. “I need a new religion, Or I need a new life,” the honest lyrics
read. Check out the full lyrics below plus the crazy video and track below that!

I’ve been chasing God
I’ve been chasing mercury and lightning

And I’ve been pressing hard
I’ve been coming up short
Lately, I’ve been thinking about
What’s gonna happen with you and I
I need a new religion
Or I need a new life

I’ve been on the phone
I’ve been chasing mercury and lightning
Pressing for the deal to close
I’ve been coming up short
Lately, I’ve been thinking about
What’s going on between you and I
I need a true religion
Or I need a new life

I swear I’ve heard the echoes of a voice
Like a dream that you feel, but you don’t remember
I’ve known it ever since I was a boy
Like a word on the tip of my tongue
I swear I’ve heard the echoes of a voice
Like a dream that you feel, but you don’t remember
I’ve known it ever since I was a boy
Like a word on the tip of my tongue

Lately, I’ve been thinking about
What’s gonna happen with you and I
I need a new religion
Or I need a new life
