"What Goes Up" as written by Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson....
What goes up, must come down
What must rise, must fall
And what goes on in your life
Is writing on the wall
If all things must fall
Why build a miracle at all
If all things must pass
Even a miracle won't last
What goes up, must come down
What must stand alone?
And what goes on, in your mind
Is turning into stone
If all things must fall
Why build a miracle at all
If all things must pass
Even a pyramid won't last
How can you be so sure?
How do you know what the earth will endure?
How can you be so sure?
That the wonders you've made in you life
Will be seen
By the millions who'll follow to visit the site
Of your dream?
What goes up, must come down
What goes round, must come round
What's been lost, must be found

    General CommentThis, combined with the "Voyager" intro, makes for a very eerie yet cool song. For some reason, the whole
    "Pyramid" seems very eerie to me.
