Understanding Deerhoof lyrics

Could anyone help with understanding the lyrics from this song? I put it into Google translate but I am not 100% convinced. It is “Phase-Out All Remaining Non-Miracles by 2028” by Deerhoof. Given this is Deerhoof, the lyrics probably don’t make total sense, but still, I like the song.

There are just a few lyrics repeated various times:

こんなの起きたら神業じゃない?
Google: Wouldn’t it be a miracle if something like this happened?
奇跡としか言いようないよね
Google: It can only be called a miracle
(These seem reasonable.)

奇跡じゃないものには
あげる余白はない
Google: There’s no room for things that aren’t miracles
(I am not clear how あげる is being used here. It has a lot of different meanings but I don’t see which one applies here.)

奇跡じゃない残った人は2028年までにフェイズアウト
Me: Phase out all remaining non-miracles by 2028
(Pretty confident about this one :slight_smile:)

さいYYなことには そんなにいないから
Google: I don’t really get into small things that much.
(This seems wrong. I don’t know what “YY” means. Could be ワイワイ?)

I got the lyrics from Spotify, who got them from Musixmatch.
