The song features lyrics written by frontman Chris Cornell and music co-written by Cornell and guitarist Kim Thayil. "My Wave" as a musical piece is very typical of Soundgarden's style. Predominantly in 5/4, a particularly irregular time signature for rock music, the song changes, intersperses and juxtaposes time signatures freely. The effect created is both authoritively erratic and characteristic of the band, even classically so. The song also regularly interchanges the keys of E minor and B Mixolydian.
