Listen, if I’d had known that sinning would have brought me closer
Well then I done sold my soul in a minute like it’s a golden ticket
Sinning brings people closer to God as they come to him to repent for the things they’ve done and gain forgiveness from the lord.
Emilio refers to selling his soul, to the Devil possibly, so that God could save him from the turmoil he would create.
The golden ticket refers to the plot element used in the Charlie and The Chocolate Factory novel which granted anyone who had one in their possession to earn entry to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.
Emilio uses it to describe that giving up his soul will be the cost to enter Heaven which is described as God’s domain.
