Expendables, The - Burning Up Lyrics

I want to run away
From this awful place in my mind
Don't want to do no more time
I do what I love to pick me up
But lately now I do not think it's gonna be enough
So I sit and I pray and I hope that someday
These problems will move far away

I'm burning up... in the fire of my soul
I'm burning up... there is no way I can stay in control
I'm burning up... in the fire of my soul
I'm burning up... there is no way

My life is like a sunny day
Always bright out never ever in the shade
Now that has all changed
There is nothing you can do to make me drown
Stop me right now
I'm not going to be the one to be held down
Even though that I'm low
I want you to know
It's time for me to ditch this heavy load

I'm burning up... in the fire of my soul
I'm burning up... there is no way I can stay in control
I'm burning up... in the fire of my soul
I'm burning up... there is no way

Don't want these feelings in my head
Don't want to cry my self to bed... no more
Don't want these feelings in my head
Don't want to cry my self to bed... no more

I'm burning up... in the fire of my soul
I'm burning up... there is no way I can stay in control
I'm burning up... in the fire of my soul
I'm burning up... there is no way

    I love this band, and though they aren't my favorite I have to say that the drummer is more similar to my style and influences than any other. Not to mention the raw sound of the recording of this album, just sounds so great.

  22. Cody Roberts

    first time hearing this song, did not expect the ending, fucking rad

  23. Nick Waffle

    That sounds like Kyle McDonald from Slightly Stoopid midway through the song!

    Saxon Johnson

    Nick Waffle I'm pretty sure it's him. He has a distinct voice.

    Juicy Joel

    its Miles not Kyle

  24. Babek Crew

  35. SensiRippah420

    Miles and that sax solo from 3:01-3:24 make this song so bad ass. the heavy guitar solo at the end shaves a star off though a solid 4/5* rating in my opinion though.


    Good to know.


    You kidding me? that riff is what initially made the song stand out in my mind. It may be out of place but it's definitely heavy as shit and not unappreciated


    guitar best parts

    Megan Vance

    their loud/quiet/loud style is what makes these guys kick so much ass

    Colin Garza

    Love love love when a song makes me go from laying down chillin to wanting to get up rock out and kick shit! Love that shit!!!!!!

  36. Skeeter Teeth

    hate this guitar solo compared to lyrics. shoulda kept singing all through song without guitar.

    James Arnold

    If you don't already know, there is another and older version of this song that doesn't have the breakdown at the end (if that's what you were referring too)

  37. Duncan Price

    a good song imo is one inch, now this song imo 999 country miles!!! Much love from Canada , Fuking EH!

  38. Maddy Betts

    i just want these lyrics with Miles included...

  39. mjweed420


  40. Jesus Haro

    Leo Roth

  44. Tyler F

    Is that dude from Slightly Stoopid at 2:10? If so why isnt he credited anywhere?


    Tyler Feliciano yeah it is.. slightly stoopid took the expendables under their wing. They released this album while signed with stoopid records


    Fuck yeah that's Miles.. He's credit in the album liner notes.

    Grant Erskine

    zojakworldwide, INgrooves, The Orchard Music (on behalf of Stoopid Records);

    Sean Wyte

    Yep it's Miles....they signed to stoopid records

    drew c

  67. RoweHowe

    Yup so's tea, and coffee, and milk (casein-protein in milk-partial opioid agonist); they all agonize with certain receptors in your brain. If only weed was properly placed in its rightful category. Yes its an intoxicant but so's pu-erh (fermented 'black' tea), so many semantics!

  68. DrPlatamapus

    As a sufferer of depression I relate to this song so much. Weed is the greatest thing to ever happen. I was losing control to heroin pretty fast though

    Shaun Tiggelman

    weed is life man doctors put me on methamphetamines for adhd i quit my meds cold Turkey like 8 years back and started smoking more frequently that shit just works wonders

  69. Nick Kent

    with that said.. Ive done many more drugs then just weed.. I was strong enough to know the difference between what is right and wrong.. I believe marijuana is a helpful drug to many many people and should be legalized without our eff'd up gov trying to make doe off of it.. Thieves and criminals all of them.. anyways music is crazy powerful! I like a lot of dif music.. Listening to george jones, waylon, shooter, hank 3.. Those boys make me wanna get rowdy and drink..But thats me im country/hippie

  70. Nick Kent

    I agree with XXarcane.. I did "drugs" for a long time, if you consider marijuana a "drug".. Haha anyway.. This shit is crazy good tunes. I listen to it sober all the time!! Its all about where you are in your mind and where you wanna be.. I like feelin Irie, nothin better.. You dont have to do drugs to listen to Marley do you.. Music is very powerful, but hopefully you have enough strength to listen to certain stuff and stay sober ;-)

  71. patrick duvall

    The dude abides

  72. patrick duvall

    Ganja isn't a drug so you're good man

  73. Marina Morales

  84. Sergio Alexander Trujillo Garcia

  85. XXarcane

    shout out to the expendables. sick ass show in SD house of blues!!!!! 4/12/13 <3

  92. andrew

    never stop rolling spliffs people, that means we lost our dignity as as a species

  93. The Cubster

    This is a pretty late response, but it's always important to be able to enjoy sober times. Yeah bud is not addicting, and I enjoy it as much as the next person, but it's really important that during your sober times you can enjoy everything as well. Cheers

  94. Skrewby Myers

    I wanna talk to SAYMSON!
