How do I delete lock files?

If I kill my pen session, the project directory has a file called “lock”. When I restart pen, it tells me that that directory is locked. How do I delete this lock?

    PEN now allows you to bypass lock files. When you start PEN, if a lock file is present, it will ask you if you wish to proceed. If you proceed, PEN will delete that lock file and write a new one corresponding to your current session.
