Sinful?

Okay so I analyze everything and I was just listening to Sinful when I hit a lyric. 

Quote

The Christians came out
They watched me tie my noose
I spoke a silent prayer
They began cryin'
They knew that I'd applied to Hell
And they knew I got in

 

Does anyone have an idea what this lyric could mean? I still haven't figured it all out. I don't know if this was written for EH or not so I could use some guidance here. It sounds so kawaii and pop but the lyrics are pretty sad.

For those who would like to have a listen for themselves here's a link.
