"Red Sky" as written by Edward Carrington Breckenridge, James Riley Breckenridge, Dustin Michael Kensrue and Teppei Teranishi....
I know what lies beneath, I've seen the flash of teeth
Conspiring with the reef to sink our ship
The wind's a cheating wife, her tongue a thirsty knife
And she could take your life with one good kiss

Can you see the sky turn red?
As morning's light breaks over me
Know tonight we'll make our bed
At the bottom of the sea

I know the ocean speaks, I've heard her call to me
And smiling in my dreams she whispers this:
"The stars retreat behind their veil
The clouds are clinging to your sail
The storm is coming, can you see?"

Look and see the sky turn red
Like blood it covers over me
And soon the sea shall give up her dead
We'll raise an empire from the bottom of the sea

    General CommentThere are seven passages in the New Testament which speak of "weeping and gnashing of teeth." Six are found in the gospel of Matthew, one in Luke.

    Within the Gospel of Matthew it says, 'When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and lowring.'

    "The storm is comming, can't you see?" obviously refers to foul weather that is sure to come. End time prophesy states that Christ's Second Coming will be accompanied by a red sky, for it will be a day of wrath and judgement.

    "There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous."—Acts 24:15.

    "The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs [God's memory] will hear his voice and come out."—John 5:28, 29.

    "The sea gave up those dead in it, and death and Hades [the grave] gave up those dead in them."—Revelation 20:13.

    After the Great Tribulation, the multitudes of True Believers will reign with Christ on Earth for 1,000 yrs. i.e. "we'll raise an empire for the bottom of the sea."
