This song is used by Harvestasha VISTA to shift into battle mode, but it actually is a little more complex than that: the song title comes from a file manipulation command used in the UNIX operative systems, which changes the access privileges to a determinate file.

Firstly, the song title is read as "Change Mode Seven Zero Zero N" and it has the following meanings: the "b" preceding the numbers specifies they are in binary format, and the numbers are grouped in threes to indicate different groups of people, with the first three digits corresponding to Harvestasha, the next three correspond to people in the same group as her (in other words, Tyria and Ayatane), and the final three to everyone else. Now well, each group of three have the following meaning: the first number is reading access, the second writing access, and the third is execution access, with "0" meaning the permission to accomplish one of these tasks is removed and with "1" meaning that particular permission has been granted. Finally, the "/n" at the end is an order to execute the command preceding it.[1]

To summarize this, it means that Harvestasha is giving herself all the possible privileges on the Tower's systems and removing them from everyone else, including Tyria, leaving them powerless to do anything.[2] Due to this, this mode change is only reserved for extreme emergencies, such as the Tower's Mainframe being directly attacked by a virus or something else.[1][3]

There are other 512 possible mode changes, but since several of them could cause Harvestasha's AI engine to go haywire due to an erroneous configuration, most of them are configured as Impossible Patterns so no one can ever use them. Similarly, chmod's was originally created after Harvestasha's completion to bestow access rights to the humans in case something happened to her and that created a security hole in the Tower's systems, but due to Clustania's birth and the Necrofamilies' dark schemes, the humans could never use this program in a way that benefited them.[4]

This song plays during the battles against Harvestasha's battle mode, and strangely enough, it also plays in the battle against Ayatane, despite not having an actual relationship to him.

Lyrics

Ma num ra gyusya yor
Ma num ra gyusya yor
I'll control you,
en valwa getrra spiritum, denera walasye
en valwa getrra spiritum, denera walasye
and I'll purify the evil humans that possess tainted souls.

Was yea ra chs gatyunla yorr na naja here,
Was yea ra chs gatyunla yorr na naja here,
I'll become the hell from which you will not be able to escape,
rete hueaf dsier yorr gauzewiga
rete hueaf dsier yorr gauzewiga
you should just forget your useless desires and fall in despair.

Was yea ra wael yorr zash, werlwe netvear,
Was yea ra wael yorr zash, werlwe netvear,
I'll rejoice as you give up everything and cry in pain,
gyaje guatrz gyas ween fayra
gyaje guatrz gyas ween fayra
You are an evil soul thrown within the flames, defiled by the hatred you hold toward your faults.

Rrha ki ra chs et bister eta meso omnis,
Rrha ki ra chs et bister eta meso omnis,
I'll become a great beast and devour everything,
ruinie cupla getrra denera.
ruinie cupla getrra denera.
I'll destroy all the evil ones that sin has tainted.

Rrha ki ra chs waath ciel, pak celetille frawr,
Rrha ki ra chs waath ciel, pak celetille frawr,
I'll become the reborn world, and open the flowers of the beautiful future,
li mea meo en kil yorr
li mea meo en kil yorr
These are my ideals, I'll kill you for them.
Rrha wol ga rana boh heath viega sosar,
Rrha wol ga rana boh heath viega sosar,
The rampaging magic power is a scorching red sword,
colga gatyunla dhezeall
colga gatyunla dhezeall
or would rather wish to be imprisoned in a land cursed by ice?
yehah
yehah
I'm so happy.

Rrha ki ra chs nosaash, en yorr gat gyajlee,
Rrha ki ra chs nosaash, en yorr gat gyajlee,
Becoming a Goddess, I'll turn you into a cursed sinner,
colga gatyunla dhezeall
colga gatyunla dhezeall
I'll imprison you in a land cursed by ice.
yehah
yehah
I'm so happy.

言ふことの怖(かしこ)き夜道 黄泉路
かれ果つ地 そぼ降るは 紅の涙か
iu koto no kashikoki yomichi yomiji
karehatsu chi sobofuru wa kurenai no namida ka
The dark road to the underworld everyone is afraid of even mentioning.
Are crimson tears what violently falls over the dead land?

Note: The かれ果つ地 (the dead land) part from the final line is left ambiguous, and can have several interpretations (some examples being "the one the land originates or departs from", "the one that is land", "the land of dead leaves"), so this translation is no more than one of these interpretations.[3]
