The Lyrics

You marched into that meeting
Like you were storming an enemy beach
You wore the sable coat I'd bought
Your ego was out of reach
You gave the evil eye to my lawyer
Dam it, you are such a leech
Everyone there knew
That you were the bad one
You were the sad one, and…

You're Insane…
You think that I can't live without you
You're INSANE
My life is just fine without you
I don't… need you…

I married you twenty some years ago
You were so cute and naïve
Everyone said we were the perfect pair
And in this I did believe
You went out and bought all the things you loved
And charged everything to me
I found out quick
That you killed my credit
You killed my credit

And… You're insane
The banks all have me on speed dial
You're INSANE
Debt recovery will take a long while
Long while, long while, long while…

I have this dream that your throat I am chocking
Throat I am chocking and…

Now, I'm INSANE
Kill you, before you get all my money
So INSANE
Should have done away with you honey
No more money, honey

Well I knew not to try and buy you out
My house you eventually sold
Then you bought your "friend" a sporty coupe
I thought that was very bold
You blew all the proceed from the sale
And not a dime to me
Some people say I should hire a hit man
Hire a hit man, and

You're Insane
And life will go on without you
Where's your brain
The gravy train left without you
Choo choo, no you, yahoo!!
You're insane
Everythings not always about you

Uh....this would not perchance be a comment on your ex-wife, would it?

Great concept with significant pacing issues - the "evil eye" line and most of the "song is about you" switches. e. g.,

I'll bet you think this song is about you ... vs.: You think that I can't live without you

Changing "can't" to "cannot" would get the syllable count to match, or maybe a more complete match with:

I'll bet you think I can't live without you

Similarly with "And life will go on without you", etc. Also, the reading tripped over "chocking" (choking), "proceed' vs. "proceeds", except in archaic (very old) usage.

We're a demanding crowd here, but this song is very promising. Welcome to AIR -- looking forward to future submissions!
