For the second half of the bridge, it sounds like pinch harmonics instead of palm-mutes, something like this:

D|-------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------|
F|-----------------7/10-----------------10\7-|
C|-----------------x-x------------------x--x-|
G|-7ph-----5ph-----5/8--7ph-----5ph-----8\\5-|
C|-----6ph-----8ph----------6ph-----8ph------|

I'm hearing this during the chorus:
D|--------------------------------------------0------------|
A|--------------------------------------------0------------|
F|--------------------------------------------5------------|
C|-2--5-2-x-2--2-x-x--x-2--5-2-x-2--2-x-x-x-x-5--and so on-|
G|-2--5-2-x-2--2-x-x--x-2--5-2-x-2--2-x-x-x-x-3------------|
C|-2--5-2-x-2--2-x-x--x-2--5-2-x-2--2-x-x-x-x--------------|

Kinda hard to tell though for sure since (once again) the guitar gets really drowned out in the mix during that part.

Great tab, very accurate.
Too easy to be "Intermediate" level though ;)
