Red Sky Lyrics - Thrice

Review The Song (29)



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?)

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

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

where is your sting | Reviewer: Jeff | 10/20/12

I think that this is about fleeting life, and the last part really gets me--the sea will give up her dead and we'll raise an empire from the bottom of the sea--I think that's about how death has lost it's sting. The lyrics are so vastly interpretable though.

Sign of things to come? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/19/11

I think this may be about a discerning the times - "Red sky at night, Sailors' delight.
Red sky in morning, Sailors take warning." The lyrics specifically mention "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." By using that old sailors saying he is talking about a dangerous time to come. Even Jesus talks about this (in the book of Matthew 16:3).
We know Thrice's lead singer/song writer get's alot of inspiration from the Bible. Anyway, awesome song and an awesome band.

Awesome Song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/12/10

This song is amazing.. I love just relaxing and listening to it, and it definitely picks out the time of people when they are at their lowest, but in the end, there will always be hope for a new tomorrow! I definitely love what this song represent in general and I think more people should understand that there is more than just heart ache and sorrow.

"Overall, I think 'Red Sky' is dealing with the issues that [people] suffer, but in the end things are redeemed and there's a resolution," Kensrue said. "It's got this image of a storm that comes and in the end this unexplained supernatural change [happens] and everything kind of comes right through these dark times. It's about hope in general."

song for my friends | Reviewer: Charles Monroe | 11/13/09

I love this song so much. everytime my band covers it accoustic i have to wear my sunglasses so no one sees the tears in my eyes when i sing it... i sing it for my friends who died who actually died at sea on a trip that i couldnt go on cause i was broke at the time.... Soon the sea will give up her dead....

Red sky | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/21/09

this song has so many differnt meanings and to anyone coming out of a long painful relationship like me it seems its refering to hanging on when all signs whisper things are going down hill, and eventually your ship will sink leaving you at the bottom of the sea (depressed) but the sun rises and a new day and beginning is born and the best can be made of any situation even when your down and out at the bottom

=] | Reviewer: Lyndsey | 6/22/09

I love this song so much. I even got part of it tattooed onto the back on my neck because it spoke so much to me.
I always imagined that this song was about a pirate on the ocean. And he loves the ocean but he knows how dangerous it can be and knows how many people have been lost to the waves.
But of course everyone views things differently.
I'm a marine biologist so i love the water. Thats why this song spoke to me so powerfully.
It's really beautiful.

Beauty | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/19/08

This song is beautiful, one of the most beautiful i have heard. When i think of how sad his voice is, it brings tears to my eyes. Thrice gets you thinking of not only how sudden your life may end but also of the enduring beauty of everything that is around us.

Imagination & Truth... | Reviewer: Victor | 8/20/08

Its amazing to know what everyone believes the song is about. To me, the video explains how life is, where we live and die and how we revolve around the world. Also, how we look at life blindly. How we don't pay attention to it and stop and listen to the voices of the people who are suffering. I do agree that some of these songs are part of the bible and how yeah the sea will give up her dead, but me personally I don't follow a certain religion, I just believe that we need to live life, or what is the remaining. They say the revelation is coming or that the world will come to an end, but we really don't know. To me, the message of this song is that we should stop and listen to the different voices and sounds. To sit and wonder why do we live so happily when the world is based on tragedy and suffering. Yet, we remain to live it and to deal with things that we don't deserve. But "Red Sky" was my fav song on Vheissu besides "Music Box" and "Of Dust and Nation."

Thank you Thrice for not only making awesome music, but allowing me to understand myself and life more...

Sincerely,
Victor

As you press play, and the song flows into your ear and around your mind. It opens a door to a world the artist is trying to explain. I love how Thrice writes their lyrics, it opens up ur imagination and let you see what you want to see. ^^ Their music makes my brain melt...

Thrice | Reviewer: Gavin | 12/16/07

What I love about this song is that maybe there is a hidden message, but at the same time it just paints a vivid picture in your mind of tragic beauty, adventure and courage. It is epic. But imagery aside, hands down, one of my new favorite form this yet again stunning band and their bodacious new sound. Two thumbs up.

Understanding. | Reviewer: Dani | 11/23/07

What I've always loved about Thrice is how they really speak their minds though their music. This song, "Red Sky," really doesn't get old. It's timeless, and it better remain that way. I don't think I've ever heard a song with such a deep meaning that has really been one to stick in my mind all the time. Once I listen to it, I feel the need to press repeat. Thrice, I love you guys. :]
