Help with Burst command

I am running AutoCAD 2012 Electrical.  The source wiring diagrams I am working with have attributed blocks all over the drawing.  For my purposes, I dont need to export the data, but I do need to change the drawing.  When I use "Burst" or "Explode Attributes to Text" in the Express Tools menu, it does change the attributes to text. However, it throws all the data that is in in the attribute all over the face of the drawing.  This is extremely time consuming to delete them as some are micro small text. 

 

I need a command that will explode the attributes to text, turning the blocks into entities, as if there are no blocks at all.

 

Can someone help find a solution?  I have hundreds of these to do. 

 

thanks for any help!

You can try iBURST from Lee Mac to see if it'll make any difference.
