I was on google, looking for lyrics to an Armenian folk song to answer a transcription request, and I came across this site:

My Armenian is unfortunately too limited to tell what these are. Are they song lyrics or some kind of poetry?

I've un-solved the thread.

I don't speak Armenian - maybe you should mention that language in the thread title?

I read what I could-they're either extremely violent war songs or poems.

Most of the folk songs from Armenia are ether about the genocide or about war of some kind, so that's not surprising

I was thinking of adding them and requesting translations, I've been reading up on Armenian history ever since I found that one song.
