Default "Death Song" Written by a Missing( Reported Dead ) Teenager

I randomly found this on Youtube. The backstory to it is kind of weird, if it is true. It is a pretty simple song but I still find it incredibly haunting. If the story is true, a disturbed and reclusive Irish teenager wrote it a couple of years ago, apparently he went missing last year and has been reported dead. I just wanted to share because I find it strangely beautiful. I question the truth in the story because Ireland is so small I'm sure I would have heard of something like this, but big enough for it to be like a local urban legend or something.

This one has an interesting history. The artist is relatively unknown writer Jamie Samson, a reclusive teenager who dissapeared this year and has been pronounced dead by authorites following the discovery of a body in his local town in Ireland. Urban legends link his disappearance to everything from government conspiracies to, you guessed it, UFOs. Other, rather questionable, sources swear Samson has messages hidden in his music urging listeners to join him "in the forest of dreams." Of course, this kind of folklore has forever coloured the tales of rock music. What we do have is the haunting music that he left behind and writings which reveal a disturbed young mind on the brink of destruction.

I'm not sure if this is real or not, but it reminds me of how I feel when I listen to Nick Drake and think about how painful his live was and his death shortly after.

You kidding me ET? Nick Drake was a snobby rich kid who picked up mental illness by putting too much stuff up his nose.

As for the original post, Po the backstory is ridiculous. What could an unknown teenager have/know that would prompt any sort of conspiracy over his disappearance.

Maybe I'm in a bad mood today.

Calm down dude, its just a song. Never said I believed the story, but it could be true, not the conspiracy ****.

And Nick Drake being posh has nothing to do with his music, which was absolutely beautiful. Probably my favourite British folk musician.
