    sunset/set of the sun

    Hello, again. Would this be correct?

    We arrived with the set of the blood red sun.

    I mean would "set" be equal to "sunset" in such cases?

    Probably - what is the context within the lyric?

    We arrived (to a hotel, an airport etc.) with the set of the blood red sun (when there was a blood red sunset).

    To me, no. But "setting" would work.
