Merry Christmas from The Fold! Check out our successfully funded Kickstarter (IT WORKED!))
A KICKSTARTER CHRISTMAS
'Twas the night before Christmas, when up on the net
The Fold checked their pledges and started to fret
Still short of their goal with the end drawing near
See, this band had some music for the world to hear
Fans watched with wonder, for the total to climb
Refreshing Safari and.... only a dime?
They petitioned on Facebook, "we can't let this lapse!"
The one dude to comment dropped his last coin on Pabst
"Well, what about friends?" Georgie posed as a plan
As he dreamt of a day The Fold's big in Japan
So, Dan started texting, "Yo, our goal's within reach!"
Yet each response read, "No, It's Christmas, you see?!"
Now, minus Matty, the other three sighed
When Mark recalled family he still hadn't tried
One rich aunt or uncle could close this tonight
But Grandma hung up with a laugh and "yeah, right!"
From Austin to Boston and Lombard to Lisle
They'd run out of backers who'd add to this pile
As the hours grew shorter, so did their hope
So bleak that Dan DM'ed Cassadee Pope (from the voice. she won.)
They shut down their Mac and climbed into bed
While nightmares of Kickstarter tortured their head
As they tossed and they turned on that cold Christmas Eve
They all rose, in unison, with a trick up their sleeve
Springing from slumber and sprinting downstairs
In the kitchen they huddled, wearing Grinch underwear
"Grab paper!" yelled Pittman, "Mark's got the pen!"
"Start writing" George shouted, Dan rallied his men
Perfectly worded, they all signed the note
Then set out some cookies with a lump in their throat
They skipped back to bed, so happy they asked
For the big man in red to back "Moving Past"
At the first beam of sun, Georgie shot like a dart
While Matty and Dan woke from Mark's awful fart
'Round the tree they all gathered to find an iPad
Quickly loaded their page to see what they had
Shocked and amazed, speechless and blessed
Of all Christmas mornings, this was surely the best
Four dudes in their undies, all slapping hands
For Santa Claus backed and they reached 15 grand!
Of course, this is legend of a rad Christmas Eve
But the moral stands true... we must always believe
So, to all our supporters, both young and old
Thanks for believing. Merry Christmas, The Fold
