Lyrically, the song deals with the frustration of loneliness and indifference toward the world. Phrasing is somewhat general and a particular inspiration or meaning behind "Wait" is not evident. Despite these melancholy themes, the song is rather quick-paced and headstrong in its execution.
The song's music video was directed by Noble Jones. It features the band playing in a grassy landscape at night, and was aired frequently on Headbangers Ball upon release. The video was also included at the end of the aforementioned Tampa Bay Lightning DVD.
