Strum patterns are all approximate; Anthony and Jack both change them up from time to time. 
I find the pattern I have in the Pre-chorus works best for most of the song but take your pick.

  Oh, it has been my point of view
G7                                    Eb  G7 (see tab)
We’re born with our backs against the wall
Cm                        Fm
  So what’s a modern man to do-o-o?
      G7                       Eb           G7
But to emulate the angry faces staring back at you

[Pre-Chorus]

These are trying times
           Bb     Eb
That we're living in
           Ab       D               G (see tab)
But there’s still a place where the strange fit in

My friend, don’t look down
              Bb                          G7
You’ve got to face what’s in front of you now
Cm                     Ab            Bb
  And don’t waste your time making excuses
                    G7
'Cause son, you’re about to find out
    Ab                    G
You might just figure out

What you’re made of

[Verse] 
Cm                    Fm
Oh, I remember twenty-five
G7                        Eb  G7
Thinking I’d figured out my life
            Cm                          Fm
And I was positive the hardest part was thro-o-ough
         G7                      
After 6 records and 2 marriages
     Gb          G7
I’m still here paying dues
  
[Pre-Chorus] 
          Cm     Fm
These are trying times
           Bb    Eb
That we're living in
           Ab       D               G (see tab)

'Cause son, you’re about to find out

     Ab                 Cm
That this is all a theme park
       G7          Cm
With a creepy carousel
     Bb                   Eb
Stop spinning around i-in circles
     Cm*      Bb*        Ab
It’s time you helped yourself
    Ab                   G
You might just figure out

What you’re made of

If you want I tried transcribing both guitars into one part for the intro and outro hooks. It's not perfect 
and it's somewhat difficult to play timing- and fretting-wise but if you want to play it, here's what I got.
