    "Why is this song called Origami?"

    It's in the first couple of lines:

    You got a head full of paper, but baby nothing like origami
    Shredded thoughts and make up won't make up for the missing piece of mind

    But it drops the analogy after that.

    I agree on what Peachey said, it´s an analogy!

    Because the song it´s about someone who isn´t interesting and has an empty mind.
