ILS and PAPI showing different readings?

At KSYR, the PAPI lights are showing too high while the ILS diamonds are showing too low. The PAPI lights only turn to red/white or red/red when practically on the grass before the runway.

IRL, its not uncommon to see this sort of thing. This is generally almost always true. The ILS system will tend to be more accurate than PAPIs or VASIs.

Thank you! I was pretty confused when I first saw it.
