Ok, so I want to build a internet facing MVC application, place it on server X in my domain, and i want this application to be able to talk Server Y,where SharePoint 2013 is installed. I want my mvc application to be able to do CRUD on some of the lists in SharePoint.

So could any of you point me in the right direction? Should I call SharePoint 2013 Web Services library from within my mvc application?

You will need to use SharePoint web services unless a new feature is introduced in SharePoint 2013 and am not aware of it.

For what you want you can use Rest API for CRUD operations on a list,
